Kiss it goodbye -- the scoreboard, that is

The Giants announced today that they're installing a new Mitsubishi Diamond Vision scoreboard that will be over 100 feet long and 30 feet high with high-definition video. Best part of it will be recapturing Omar Vizquel's fielding gems; the worst will be seeing shirtless guys blown up to being 30 feet tall during day games. Here's part of the press release --
"AT&T is excited about giving Giants fans an unmatched video experience at AT&T Park and Bay Area consumers an unmatched video experience at home," said Melba Muscarolas, AT&T vice president and general manager for the San Francisco market area. "During the upcoming season, we plan to demonstrate our innovative new services to AT&T Park visitors and why AT&T is the only communications and entertainment company the Bay Area will ever want."
MEMO TO MELBA MUSCAROLAS -- IF AT&T REALLY WANTED TO ENDEAR ITSELF TO FANS AND CHANGE ITS MONEY-GRUBBING IMAGE, IT WOULD RE-NAME THE PARK "MAYS FIELD." LIKE ANYONE AT AT&T CARES WHAT I THINK.
