Monday letters: Can Columbians love two teams?

May 19, 2014 

— To the excellent points in Warren Bolton’s April 18 column (“On baseball being king and other tidbits”) regarding yet another taxpayer-funded baseball stadium (USC’s ballpark is taxpayer-funded since USC is taxpayer-funded), let me add another: Columbia already has a favorite ball team and ball field. It’s the Gamecocks.

Does any rationally thinking person really believe there’s any room in the hearts of Columbia’s citizens for a second team?
