We’ve been hearing about that new roof and center-of-the-field video board for a whole darn year now.
I did enjoy seeing them for myself on Saturday.
As much as the profile of the non-air-supported roof changed the skyline outside, the inside profile didn’t look that different to me. The center of the roof looks familiar and lets in natural light that reminded me of the Teflon roof of the first 40 years.
I was skeptical of the way-wide shape of the video board when we first sat down, I must admit. But as the afternoon wound on, it won me over. Hooray, center board.
I tell you, what, though. The new sound system? I still could not understand a word from the PA announcer, the referee talking about penalties …
As we looked around through our eyes above our masks, I figured that about, oh, seven out of 10 people also wearing their masks when they were not eating or drinking, including all the folks in the two rows below us. In the rows immediately above us, hardly anybody wore a mask.
Yeah, in the sections around us and as I walked the concourse during halftime, seven out of 10 people were wearing a mask.
Will that keep this from being a superspreader? Oh how I hope so.
