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.”
