This picture from the Portland Architecture Blog is priceless. The Blazers played a exhibition game in the old Coliseum on Wednesday (which I was dying to go to but the wife had a 'retreat') and made the exceptional decision to leave the curtains open. I have never had the pleasure of being in the bowl with windows showing, and what a shame - it makes for a wonderful and unique arena experience. I imagine that players and television producers hate the natural light but it sure looks good to me.
I hope the Blazers do it again next year, I'll be there.
