Jeffery Loria on Norman Braman

Something gives me the idea they won't be spending Thanksgiving with each other.

''Braman is from the first century at the time of the (Roman) Coliseum,'' Loria said after Wednesday's game. ``He probably would have opposed the (Roman) Coliseum. It was a colossal waste of everybody's time and effort.''

Assuming everything is good to go, and that is horrible assumption when it comes to the Marlins and a new stadium.  Loria, as all my fears have come to pass, is going to build what he thinks is a jewel of a stadium.

"It sounds trite, but it's a major thing for the community," Loria said. "Judge Cohen did the right thing. … I want to see something special. I want to build a jewel for the community."

I love sentiment, but I have seen the 2003 World Series ring that he personally designed and it was beyond gaudy.  To me, while it had a lot of gems in it, it was far from a jewel.  Then again, maybe I'm just a simple rube who doesn't understand what a "jewel" is.  Be that as it may, I hope the design will stand the test of time.

The renderings should be released fairly soon.
