I grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota where things don't really change often, so when the slightest thing comes along, I hear about it even though I live in the cosmopolitan metropolis of St. Paul these days. They changed the name of the gas station on Highway 5! They put in a stop light! Did you hear about the car accident?
Still, even as inoccuous as those headlines may be, and as quaint a picture as it paints of my home town, there is no chance that they would have made a fuss about a sign going up in the city center. The Edmonton Oilers took a picture of the sign and made it their featured story on their home page.
Edmonton, you are adorable. Let me know when you have your next bake sale!
The sign represents a 500 million dollar undertaking by the city and also the image of the brand new state of the art facility so that passerby's might have a glance at the proposed outline and design of the building. But rest assured Ryan Henning, we will inform you of the next bake sale - I will be baking turd brownies just for you...Shithead
Haha I just noticed you referred to St. Paul as "cosmopolitan". Now I know for sure that you're on bath salts
You sir, are an idiot. First of all you start by calling a city of 1million people small, which obviously is wrong, and definitely not the smallest or lamest in Canada. Actually 5th largest in the country, just slightly smaller than Calgary. Secondly, major construction projects all have signs. But a genius like yourself must know this. The reason the people of Edmonton are excited enough to have a news story circulate is not because of a sign, but because the sign represents the beginning of the actual planning and construction of our new half billion dollar arena, something that people in the area are very much looking forward to after a long period of deliberation, the arena is part of a major downtown revitalization and includes a new entertainment district and two new office towers. I can see how this totally reminds you of a name change at the gas station! Anyway, after your brain surgey
hahahaa Ryan Henning you are the funniest American, gee 13 champion in football and 5 in hockey. Produced some the greatest hockey players and Bunch of Great football players. I think you should educated yourself and realized regardless of size of our city Edmonton ten times better than minnysoda.
The sign is normal on any construction progect.if a 450 million dollar progect is lame you must be the stereo typical american
