Getting Ripped

Big O

Montreal’s Olympic Stadium was a tremendously lousy baseball stadium, full of echo and a home plate exactly 17 miles from the first row of seats. And from the outside, the place looks like something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

My first wife and I were there for some of the ’76 Olympics, and over the years we would come down from Ottawa several times a season to see the Expos.

But that’s neither here nor there.

The main thing is, it’s been announced that more than 2700 rips in the roof have occurred between last November and May.

That’s a lot of rips. What’s the roof made of, soft plastic?

Do workers get up on top and walk around counting the rips? And are they wearing cleats on their boots which are causing the rips?

And to make this post even more interesting than it already is :-(, I’m including a joke Willie Nelson told in Rolling Stone magazine.

Guy went to a doctor for a physical. The doctor says, “First thing you have to do is stop masturbating.” The guy said, “Why?” Doctor says, “So I can examine you.”

  1. Are we still on for Sunday Dennis?

    That stupid stadium is a dump. It needs to be torn down because all it ever does is cost us money. Now that you’re here, it’s going to cost you money too! Get ready to be seriously pissed off. 🙁

  2. Ah, yes, the Olympic Stadium. It’s the gift that just keeps on giving! Montrealers will never forget the late Mayor Jean Drapeau’s famous pronouncement: “The Olympics can no more have a deficit than a man can have a baby!”
