Red Bull Arena: So This Thing is Really Happening!
So I've been geeking out all week long on the new Red Bull Arena webcam. To most people watching a stadium being built is about as entertaining as watching paint dry but without getting a contact high from the fumes. But if you are a Gotham soccer fan watching this process feels like being introduced to your one true love a single, supple body part at a time.
Over at Red Bulls Reader they've got some new photo's up today of the first bits of steel for the lower bowl that have gone into ground today. Now obviously this project has had years of delay but it can't be said that now that they've started building in earnest that they are not shagging ass to get this house raised as soon as possible. And when you compare what's being built versus what would have been built if the original plans went according to schedule, it was worth the wait and will actually be for the best in the long run for the team, the fans and the game in North America.
