I’d sworn off doing stadium shots after a couple of trips specially to do them wound up with other people posting stuff the day before. It just seemed like a frustrating and expensive afternoon away from work. To cut a not very interesting story very short I arranged to meet some friends and Sporting Kansas City fans for lunch as I do frequently (feel free to join us), we hit Pandolfi’s Deli, had a great meal and then went to see the stadium as a group after Sam Pierron had offered to show us around the day before.
I had not been to the site since Omar Bravo was shown his new digs back in late November and things have changed mightily. It has the semblance of a stadium almost finished as apposed to a building site with the semblance of a stadium. Finishing work, mudding, dry walling and painting is going on everywhere. Miles and miles of network cable are being strung through corridors and they concourse shops and food places appear to be almost complete. It is amazing.
Some notes. 300 pictures sounds a bit over the top. Hear me out — we toured every level of the stadium, and walked around every side. This pictures represent views from almost every angle possible. The playlist also contains over a dozen videos. Most of these were poorly shot by me from those same spots. So there you go — I think it is as close to a tour as you can get without actually going on a tour. Still to much? So shoot me – I was to lazy to weed through the pictures.
Here are some of the better of the 300 or so shots I took – and the YouTube playlist to start with.
This is the view from the broadcast booth …
The stage area has yet to be filled in with the seats but the screen is going in..
I hope he remembers today!
