So I want to start a short mini series. I was looking at flags, and got made that Florida’s flag is pretty lame. I like striking and recognizable flags. I then thought of a seies about doing flags for each florida county. I saw that was 67 of them, but only had an idea for a hand full. But here are some! I’m gonna start a blog with explanations of each flag. But I’m always open to suggestions on making this easier on me.

Tropicana Field has become infamous for it’s catwalks unfortunate role in ballgames. On August 5, 2010 in one of the more recent incidents, Jason Kubel of the Minnesota Twins hit a sky-high infield pop-up that would have ended the inning in a 6–6 game if caught, but the ball struck the A-ring and fell safely on the infield allowing the Twins to score the go-ahead run and extend the inning in a controversial 8–6 win.
