    How many 49ers fans does it take to change a light bulb?

    None, they will all show and talk about how good the old one was...

  • ... Woops... That's embarassing. It was supposed to be a link to destroying to Kingdome.

    Rookie mistake.

  • I remember taking a tour of the Kingdome in grade school when it first opened. It was a concrete turd then, and it was a concrete turd when they finally put it out of it's misery in 2000.

  • That was a crazy day, my old job had a pretty good view of it from the upper floors. Everyone was there with their families. Fun times!

    Though I kinda miss that ugly old grey dome.
    So you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil?

  • Can we just have a sticky how to post a youtube. Seems every week someone has to explain the same thing all over again.

    I think everyone can just go to the FAQ forum where that is available.

  • Even though it was a crappy venue, I miss the Kingdome because of my Mariner memories there. I think Griffey left because of Safeco Field.

  • It's a weird video for me to watch. I love our current stadium, but for some reason, it's painful seeing the Kingdome go down.

    Exactly. I was in Europe at the time, so I didn't get the intimate, first-hand experience of this. More like hearsay that something nostalgic and dear to your heart is suddenly gone. And you find it's true after all. Yea, you'll get a shiny new one, but that still doesn't change what was taken.
    World Champion Seattle Seahawks football. It's an addiction, and there is no cure.

  • That was shot from the same park where me and the wife watched it from. 'twas a crisp morning, and we had awesome seats! I remember the whole hillside shouting the countdown, then 5 secs after we hit zero.... BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!!!!! CRASHHHHHHHHH........ Massive dust cloud. Probably the most awesome thing I've ever witnessed in person.

    May you Rest In Peace Les, my friend...

  • It's weird how something that doesn't matter to anyone not from around here could feel so profound, bizarre and surreal like that day.
