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.

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...
My apologies on the usage of "huge hunk of shit". What I really meant to say, was that it is an Ugly Hillbilly Holiday Inn for Sports Entertainment that needs to be turned into a Parking Lot.

LOL...how long have you lived here? I've been here for 17 years, and now I shiver like that!

In all seriousness, for it's time the Astrodome was a great stadium. I got to see the Chiefs beat the Oilers there the last year the Oilers were in town (Bono was the Chiefs QB at the time). It wasn't a bad stadium at all, just old...I'd been in the old Detroit Tigers stadium too and it was just old, so that wasn't a big deal. The NFL wouldn't put a new team in Houston without a new stadium (which is what Bud Adams wanted, and he took the Oilers to Tenn. when he didn't get it), so Reliant was built.

I won front row seats to the Chiefs-Texans game in 1993, and I think Reliant is the nicest stadium I've ever been in (but I haven't been to Arrowhead since it's been redone, so I'm going to assume Arrowhead is nicer). I prefer Arrowhead for a host of other reasons.
