Interesting points, IMO. I hadn't thought so much about the Olympics angle of it all (from LB's perspective).

So, what events are going to be able to be held in the LB Angels baseball stadium?

Essentially, the Long Beach waterfront will become a waterfront sports park, hosting a variety of sports and events including BMX, water polo, sailing, marathon swimming, triathlon events, and the good ol’ nail-biter that is handball. Like the Valley Sports Park being proposed at the Sepulveda Basin Recreational Park, much of Long Beach will have temporary structures that are decorated with purple-pink-yellow spectrum of the Olympic bid’s branding.

You look at the fact that the Rams and Clippers have owners that are financing their own stadiums...yeah, I can't blame Anaheim for telling Arte to get bent actually.

Steve Balmer (clippers owner) is worth $41B, Arte isn't in his league.

I love that area of Long Beach, so much that we bought a condo adjacent to the proposed site after the housing bubble.  So this would be incredible if it happens, although unfortunately I'd have to hang over the railing to see a game from the unit (it faces east dammit).  But the downtown there has really been improved since I was a kid and nothing brings in more investment capital like a stadium project.

For those of you old enough to remember San Diego prior to the Padres stadium being built downtown, it's absolutely stunning to see what it helped to do for what is now the gaslamp area and one of the most beautiful cities and ballparks.

Which is surpassed I believe by his wife.  

Edit:  My bad.  Looked it up.  His wife is only worth $6.7 billion.  She's slacking.

If Arte can't afford to be a big time owner, perhaps he should sell.

My priorities:

1. Angels stay in Anaheim.

2. Move to my hometown of Tustin.

3. I could live with them in Long Beach as long as they stay in Orange County.

your hometown is Irvine

Still no way the Dodgers let the Angels into LA County.

The Angels have rights to LA county. Dodgers can't do anything to stop them. Both clubs have the rights to Ventura, LA, and OC. This isn't an A's and Giants situation.

This is what the area looked like in 2004 when the US Olympic swim trials were held there

Beautiful spot for a ballpark, but the traffic...

So....you didn't hear it from me. Speaking with representatives from the City of Anaheim (those in charge of budgeting and obtaining and maintaining insurance), they are under the impression that they are out of the running for the Angels....don't shoot the messenger.

For reference I work at the brokerage responsible for every line of insurance for every City and County in California.
