We'll never leave Jupiter - Marlins President Samson says
2006-02-11 08:18
by Bob Timmermann

For starters, Jupiter is not a good place for spring training. It takes several years to travel to there. I suppose you could play on one of the moons, but the spacecraft that takes you there has to be run by evil computers that can turn on you. And the gravitational pull of a large planet like Jupiter really makes it hard to hit the ball anywhere. And it's cold! But I suppose The Great Red Spot could compete with the Green Monster as a baseball stadium quirk.

I suppose Samson could be talking about the city in Florida where the Marlins train.

My favorite story about spring training sites is when the Astros found that using the city's name with Astros for their Florida State League affiliate had problems.They decided Osceola County Astros was, shall we say, more euphonious than Kissimmee Astros.

I should forward this blurb to the UH Basketball coach. He wouldn't be able to gripe about travel ever again.
