    Hawaii Governor Approves Funding For New Aloha Stadium

    New stadium will be in the 30-35k capacity with temporary expansion to 40 (link is below the article). It won't host the Pro Bowl but will be certainly well used by the island residents. Stadium site will be connected by Honolulu Rail Transit with the downtown by 2025

    If the logistics weren't so demanding against it, Hawaii should try for getting a minor league baseball team, ala the Islanders.

    This has been needed for a while, at least if they wanted to stay an NCAA D1 team. Their current place is so rust filled it makes me feel like I need a tetanus shot just looking at pictures.

    Hawaii is a high humidity location. Most things rust, some quicker than others. (While those in the US Northeast may know the car rusting out due to the winter weather feeling, those in other parts of the continental US can drive a vehicle for a decade or more safely. Cars in Hawaii do rust out faster than on the mainland.)

    Hopefully, technology has developed to help maintain the steel's structural integrity vs rust.
