Time Event
It's Emperor Norton Field, Darnit!
Well, we knew this was coming: SF Giants' home field to become AT&T Park.

This will be the second name change since the park opened as Pacific Bell Park, thanks to the acquisition of Pacific Telesis Corp. by SBC, followed a few years later by SBC buying AT&T and renaming the resultant company AT&T. I'd like to think this will put an end to the name changes for a while.

During the park's initial phase, some of us joked that they'd named the field for a pioneering Korean baseball player. (I hope y'all can figure that one out, and I hope it isn't considered offensive in these politically correct times.)

Me, I prefer the idea of naming the park for the city's most famous resident, His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of these United States and Protector of Mexico.

Postscript on FurCon
In an earlier post and those following it, I mentioned the kirigumi costumer I saw at Further Confusion. I have run across a photo of this costume here. The player is identified as "Ayano" in another forum, but with no other information.
