Live in a baseball stadium? Uh, not quite

Let's say you're a baseball fan, and your team moves to a new stadium, leaving the old one abandoned. That's the bad news. The good news is that you could actually build a home — a real, honest-to-goodness house — smack dab in the middle of the old stadium and live there.

Wouldn't that be just too cool?

Yes, it would be too cool, which is why you can't do it.

Rumors spread on the Internet, however, that a lucky handful of people were doing just that in Osaka Stadium in Japan. Probably because of pictures like the one below. But it turns out that although those are honest-to-goodness homes smack dab in the middle of shut-down Osaka Stadium, they're only model homes put there by a homebuilder to show off their wares.

So, you can walk through those homes, but you can't live there.

Because that would be just too cool.
