That's where Rocky vs Apollo One took place.

I saw Mike Stewart fight Ivan Robinson there!

Olympic Stadium in Montreal.

I don't know why but every time I'd catch the Braves (TBS) or the Cubs (WGN) playing up there against the Expos I'd watch the whole game.

couldn't tell you why either.

It is such a waste of space in 2021. Needs to go.

Giants Stadium - always remember the wind being a factor in that stadium.

The Forum is still there. Looks the same but primarily a concert venue now. SoFi sits across the street.

On a busy tour around ‘15, the next day’s itinerary just had a street address and Detroit.

Woke up in the Silverdome parking lot. Rolls of turf by the buses. Some dude bought it to put on shows. Had our run of the place all day.

Driving one across the joint.



And I’ll add old Pitt stadium

No one remembers The Summit in Houston? I did some work there when Joel Olsteen bought the place.

I saw Alice In Chains open for Ozzy there. The Carrier Dome isn't really a dome any longer, now it has a fixed roof.

Veteran's Stadium was the worst. The astroturf sections didn't fit together properly so you could see the gaps in the seams and the surface was like concrete. Wendell Davis blew out both his kneecaps when he got caught by the seam monster.

Went to many Aeros and Rockets games at The Summit.

Definitely not a bad arena.

The other day I came across a Youtube channel called Forgotten Places, and the guy talked about the Seattle Kingdome. I had kind of forgotten about the Kingdome and how it was a dual use stadium


Triple use stadium for pro sports. The Sonics called it home for many games and for a few entire seasons. The Sonics set a ton of attendance records there.

The Kingdome hosted 3 Final Fours (1984 - Georgetown, 1989 - Michigan, 1995 - UCLA)

Sonics game, early 1980’s:

It’s still a dome, just of better quality than before.

Pretty amazing to me St. Louis doesn't have a team yet.
Not really. EJ Dome does not hold up and owners probably think it’s a saturated market. Plus St Louis isn’t going to want a new stadium after Kroenke ripped them off.

Idk why but Ive always had an affinity for the Silverdome


If we did a "word association" game, and you said "Silverdome", this is what pops into my head

1) Shitty football on Thanksgiving.

2) Wayne Fontes looking lost.

The old Tiger Stadium was one of the great American ballparks.
