Troy, New York: Joe Bruno Stadium
Many cities name stadiums after famous dead people. Not Troy, New York, a city that knows who is buttering the bread.
Its new baseball stadium, located at the community college, is named after Joseph Bruno, the long-time State Senate majority leader.
Every state has one of these people -- a legislator who has been around forever and who knows how to deliver the bacon to the home district. Nice little park, at least.
