Re: Site in Hub top choice for a soccer stadium

Not sure if it's big enough, nor would it be the highest and best use, but the National Grid site in Malden?

Re: How to post an image

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the forum software requires a .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif format. There may be other formats it can handle but those are the only ones I'm sure of.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Anyone else notice that the Orange Line seems to be more of a mess than usual this summer? It doesn't seem to be mechanical breakdown-type long delays but more day-to-day larger-than-normal headways...

Re: Open Thread

Yes, that's because Tampa fans are terrible. A new stadium is not going to change that.

Looks awesome. Too bad they couldn't have got it up to 11,000 ft, would have looked much better. ;)

The main lesson to be learned from European plazas...
