Swimming Hole

News broke last night that the dreaded downtown Hole will be converted into a new Olympic sized swimming pool. The project is a coup for those eager to see the space put to a better use. Spokesperson for the project, Justa Trickdu, said that as soon as the rat poison is removed from the area, construction can begin. Detractors say they fear seeing bathing suited shoppers in the mall, whereas supporters say the time has come for downtown summertime fun.

It already is a pool after every rainstorm, so why not?

That would be awesome. And it could totally double as an ice rink in the winter. Hello Winter Olympics in Stamford! And ice fishing! And a place to test freshwater submarines! i love it.

I heard that the downtown art exhibit this summer will feature statues of totalitarian dictators.

Worst idea ever! Gotta be an April Fool's joke.

Not the best place for a pool, unless you add a YWCA to it.

totally an April Fools day joke. Stamford isn't capable of this considering the lack of funding...
