Right now the Florida Marlins are breaking ground on their new stadium, slated to open on Opening Day 2012. If you can’t make it, as the celebration is today from 10-12pm, check out their webcam that is taking snapshots of the whole event. This is a day about 16 years over due – and kind of a surreal event for us Marlin fans. Finally, the team has a permanent home and we can all breathe easier.
"Jonnylons" has been a life-long Marlins fan - which isn't hard since they've only been around in since '93 and he's been around a bit longer. He founded MarlinsNation.com in order to provide a voice to Marlins fans on the internet which he started when he was up in Tallahassee at Florida State and was stranded with no Marlins games on TV up in that market.
