Funny, I didn’t see the Sioux Falls City Council approving this naming right;

Smithfield Foods has naming rights for the Birdcage field as a part of its partnership with The Sioux Falls Canaries.

Not sure how you can announce such a partnership? Any city owned facility has to go thru a process for naming rights, which includes going in front of the naming board for pre-approval and then to the city council for final approval.

So if they are announcing a ‘potential’ sponsorship that would make sense, but nothing is inked yet.

Also, I thought the stadium was slated to be torn down, are we now going to save it? And how much is this ‘sponsorship’ going to cost us?

9 Thoughts on “FREE Hotdogs!

    Maybe Huether was right after all about the “High Speed Trains”…. But have you noticed?…. No direct route from Fargo. #ThreeBusesFromFargo …..:

    EB5, Smithfield, TikTok, and now baseball, what are the Chinese really up to?

    The Chinese and America’s favorite pastime, could this truly be the canary in the coal mine?

    I can’t wait until we get the overnight train from Sioux Falls to Pierre. It will most likely be dubbed the “Reactionary Red Eye”.

    Imagine legislators in this state traveling by rail. Finally, their mode of transportation will fit the century that most of them live in.

    AND, I can’t wait until 2032, when Noem is running for re-election to the US Senate and she does a “Whistle-Stop Campaign” through some of our finer towns throughout South Dakota. Then, to entertain the gathering crowds around the train as it stops from time to time, maybe she can do some lasso tricks with Corey L. as the staged victim in the crowd and in waiting.

    Oh, and as the Reactionary Red Eye continues on to Rapid, I hope it makes a brief stop in Wall on the Southside of I-90 at their new depot, which will be attached to the new Love’s truck stop in that town. 🙂

  5. Funny how we were going to tear this down a few years ago, but all of sudden we are remodeling after the communist hot dog cart showed up.

    “The communist hot dog cart”, you know, I believe the Colonel warned us about this in ‘Dr. Strangelove’. But at least after some justified gun fire with a bunch of communists, we won’t have to answer to the “local” hot dog factory the way we would have to answer to the Coca-Cola Company:

    It was Nixon who gave Khrushchev his first hot dog. And, it was Trump who claims the same with Stormy…. But back to Dick and Nikita…. Leave it to those crafty communists to take a capitalistic turn on us with their own cart of dogs…. What’s next? A communist ‘a la carte cart where they dish up whatever they want and call it a hot dog?…. Because I know that’s how hot dogs are usually made….. #PutinWieners #RussianLongees #ColdWarDogs

    Whatever the name, it’ll be a ‘Weiner’. America might become Baseball, Hot Dogs, and BYD (instead of Chevrolet) cars.

    “Say, did you guys see where Oscar Mayer is struggling to find enough drivers for their Weinermobiles?”….. “It’s definitely a sign of our times”….. “AND, I’m sure there are millions of illegals who would love the chance to drive a wiener around America”…. #AmericanDream
