  •  Turner got free stadium he didn't build (0+ / 0-)

    Clarification: Ted Turner and the Braves didn't build the Olympic Stadium in Atlanta. Rather the stadium was built w/ the idea that it could then be used a new stadium for the Braves. He didn't have to spend a penny on it.

    •  Well not exactly. (0+ / 0-)

      Ted Turner, then owner of the Braves agreed to pay a large sum of the cost to build Centennial Olympic Stadium (approximately $170 million of the $209 million cost)

      Wiki.

      Also ted picked up the cost to renovate it to a ball park.

      In the choice between changing ones mind and proving there's no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.
