In Thomas Swick's travel article, he names his seven other wonders of the South Florida. I'm not really sure what the original wonders are, since I don't read the travel page that often. But no matter, the Marlins made a showing as number three in the alternative list.
While I agree that the team is one of the most energetic and fun to watch play the game, though the present losing streak has put a bit of a damper on that. But that can be easily rectified with a much needed win.
The part of his article I have trouble understanding is how in the World did the Marlins rank behind an Interstate Highway?
Ranking behind the Seniors, sure I get that, but behind a Highway? We're not talking Route 66 here. Maybe I haven't kept up modern music the way I should and there are many anthems to I-95, but I seriously doubt it.
But if you think the ranking is fair, and everyone is entitled to their opinion, there is another thing about the list that does cause me concern.
It is the item that came in number five.
Since when is not having a regional symphony orchestra considered a good thing?
In other words, I wouldn't put much stock in the list. However, it is nice the Marlins are mentioned positively somewhere. Even if it is the travel page.
