Hartford sucks.

I lived in CT for 20 years. Beautiful, beautiful suburbs and the worst cities ever.

Are you freaking kidding me?

Bridgeport (the armpit of New England according to Cliff Claven). New Haven, Hartford, New London, Norwich, Stamford, Norwalk, Danbury, Waterbury, Torrington.

Pathetic.

duck you, Bill. We don't miss you.

P.S. Your blinker is still on.

This would be great. From the looks of it seems like they are going to build a whole entertainment complex around XL with restaurants, movie theaters...would be a great place to hang before/after a game

I'm out here in California and that whole set up looks basically like the Staples Center area, which is pretty neat.

Ok bro

Tell about the beautiful cities in CT

Everyone who lives there knows the cities are toilets. Please.

What planet do you live on?

Reality sucks doesn't it?

Burbs great and the cities are so freaking bad.

What does Hartford sucking even have to do with the thread? Someone's trying to make an improvement to the arena that our team plays in. I don't like Hartford but I go there for UConn games, so why again are you bringing up how much Hartford sucks? I must have missed the post where someone said it was awesome.

Lets face it the XL center is in need for improvement and since a new arena is unlikely, this is probably the best thing. My only question would be, even with state of the art upgrades like this will they draw anything besides Uconn games? As it is all summer concerts are at the meadows and Mohegan has top performers all year long.

Except for UConn games, how many of you would go there?

XL Center, The Meadows, Hartford Stage, Real Art Ways, Cinestudio, Bushnell Park, The Bushnell, Feng, Firebox, Agave, O'Porto, J's, City Steam, Wadsworth Atheneum and Theater Works. And that's just since August. Do you ever leave the house?

Chill out Bill you have your standards, I guess we should just blow up the city and not try to make it better. Downtown isnt that bad sorry its not times square. Hopefully Baldwin can get an NHL team back to Hartford I have heard rumors about him trying to.

I think it's time we stop the charade and finally profess to Bill that we do envy him and the greatness that is South Tampa. One day I hope to make it there....One day.

SouthTampaBill aside (isn't that always the case?) ... I really hope this happens. They've done a great job over the past few years with downtown (Convention Center, Science Center, Front St, XL Facade) ... the stadium itself has been in dire need of a refresh.

I guess I should cry myself to sleep now because Bill lives in Tampa for the record the suburbs in CT suck.
