So What's the Big Deal with the Astrodome?

Every night on the Houston local news they refer to the Astrodome as the 8th wonder of the world. Growing up in Kansas City, I have never heard this before. Was it a momentous feat in its time, or are Houstonians just full of themselves? It just looks like a shitty old stadium to me. I vaguely remember the Kingdome being a big deal, maybe in the early 90's, but they tore that down without much fuss.

thanks, I kind of feel like a jackass for not wiki-ing that shit. Eh, I like the range of info better.

Go **** YOURSELF ****HEAD! (Sorry for the profanity but you struck a nerve with me) You have NO IDEA what the Astrodome meant to those of us that grew up in Houston. It was just as symbolic to Houston as the Empire State Building was to New York or the SEARS TOWER, when it was called that was to Chicago (You might get it now). It was an architectural wonder for its day as the first ever domed stadium. It needs to be preserved as a historical building. There are far lesser buildings designated as such all over the country. Problem is it has sat for so long it's going to cost MILLIONS of $$$ to renovate. Folks from out of town who live here that don't understand its significance get to vote , as well as those who ironically don't pay taxes. They're not going to approve any public funding for it. I've always felt that they need to raise PRIVATE $$$ to turn it into something. Let the private sector take over and see what happens. What a concept...

If they'd sell it cheap, it would make a great house.

You could probably turn the air conditioning down in the upper deck if you're not up there.

Put in an offer. This could make up for you missing out on the Silverdome.

If you go to Reliant and look at it across the parking lot it looks small. Like you could almost fit it inside Reliant.

Originally, it was to be named The Astroglide Dome, but the Astrodome name slipped into its' place rather easily when put to a vote.
