I had Wednesday morning off from working out at the gym and Ari and I wandered around the Adelaide Oval for our early morning poodlewalks:
The modernization of the Adelaide Oval is a big deal in terms of urban renewal. The boosters even say that it will lead to a sports-led recovery of an economically depressed Adelaide. That should be taken with a grain of salt. Sports fans–football and cricket– ain’t going to revitalise the CBD just by coming to a stadium once a week then returning home to the dormitory suburbs in their cars.
