What's In My Closet? Horrible Ideas Edition
Was just over on Unfair Park reading Schutze's take on the latest missle fired into the hull of the Trinity River Toll Road Waste Of Time Project.
From the city that gave us the CueCat, plastic dividers on HOV lanes and P.C. Cobb Stadium downgraded into an InfoMart, this might be our dumbest idea ever. After 11 years, now we're saddled with another 20-month, $29 million delay. Brilliant!
Got me to thinking. And scrounging.
What are some of the other worst ideas in Dallas history? Particularly, ya know, pertaining to sports.
Lookie what I found ...

*$50 million Cotton Bowl renovation.
