How I loathe you with all my hate, Notre Dame.
I was doing some research for a quick post on the disaster in Dallas and wound up at the Alamodome website (Ed. Note: Check out "Fact No. 4". Oh, the end zones. That makes more sense then in the middle of the field.) I remember visiting San Antonio right after the Alamodome was built and remember the tour guide (Yes! I took a guided tour of a stadium! What the fuck of it? I was 12, ya judgmental clown shoes!) talking about how they did extentive testing to make sure that it could house a football team. At the time, the NFL was looking to expand. It is amazing to me how little thought is going into these new billion dollar stadiums. New Yankee Stadium has freak jet stream that lift balls out. Citi Field has obstructed views. Owners, please stop worrying about how many skyboxes you can put in and borrow an engineers, preferably an Asian one, to do a little number crunching.
The other random fact is the October 31st game between Notre Dame and Washington State...in San Antonio...TEXAS! Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?
