Andy's Angles: Miners

I had a photography itch the other day, and only a short time to scratch it.  McDade Park in Scranton seems to be a decent destination.

Above is the miners' memorial near the entrance.

It's great that there is something to honor all the miners did for the area.

However, it always drives me crazy that whenever there is a "name the sports team" contest, "Miners" is always at the top of the list.  I like statues and other ways to honor heritage.  Sticking a sports team with the "Miners" name seems, in my book, to reinforce the old coal town image our area has.  Thankfully, the people who run the sports teams have been going in other directions.
