Sometimes I like to consider myself a mini expert on Japan. I learned to speak and write Japanese in school years ago; I’ve traveled all over Japan numerous times; and most currently relevant, my brother, who has lived in Japan for 13 years, married into the coolest family of Japanese artists.

If You Read the Paper: VB Stadium is too small to attract big team

Written by Zack Miller.

VB Stadium is too small to attract big team. 

aerial-REVISED-cropped

I love the idea of having a huge stadium in Norfolk-Virginia Beach. It just has to be built big enough. Not only is the proposed area for the stadium a poorly accessible dead end of a highway, but the arena itself is simply too small. There likely isn’t a team that would be willing to relocate to a new stadium that has such a small seating capacity. Most arenas in the NBA have around 19 or 20,000 seats, with the lowest being in Sacramento, at around 17,000. The VB Stadium would only hold 15,500, and that's simply not worth it to a huge NBA franchise to relocate.
