Franklin Sounds? What, like cash registers?

So what do you all think about the possibility of the Sounds stadium in Franklin? Bob Krumm brings it up over on but since we’ve had a few discussions about it here, I thought I’d get our readers’ perspectives, too.

Is it a weird idea? Are you, like Bob K, thinking about the tax burden? Or are you thinking about the convenience of a pre-game dinner at Wild Noodles? (Sorry, I’m partial to their Thai peanut salad.)

    I love minor league baseball, but I would not fight my way through Franklin to go to a game.

    Agreed. I think I would never go to another Sounds game. And not necessarily out of any spite that they moved from Nashville proper, but mostly because it wouldn’t be appealing at all.

    Yeah, same here.. Franklin is nice and all, but it’s far away.

    Yeah, I don’t drive to Franklin unless it’s absolutely necessary. I don’t even cross OHB unless it’s an emergency.

    I’d love it if they went to Franklin. The further baseball is from downtown Nashville, the happier I am.

    Hahahaha… as someone who commutes 75 miles a day for work plus schleps back and forth occasionally for weekend entertainment, you guys are killing me with this “Franklin’s so far away” business.

    But believe me, if I could move to Nashville right now I would, and I’d be complaining right along side of y’all. ;)

    It’s not that it’s far away, it’s that it’s a royal pain in the ass to get through. I drive from Berry Hill to Spring Hill every day, but I avoid getting off I65 like a root canal.
