Overall, it was just remarkable to be in such a historic venue celebrating a team and a city that has changed so much in 50 years. The last time I was at a sporting event in the Coliseum was the 1984 Olympics. Before that, Rams football...
This event, if nothing else, proves to the country that the Coliseum is still a viable venue for professional sports and that a football team can easily play here. Sure there aren't enough or any luxury boxes, but the Coliseum is the people's arena and people will come. Moreover, for those who bitch about lack of parking, the expo line is coming soon and will be able to drop you off right in front of the majesty of the Coliseum, instantly making it one of the most accessible arenas in the country.
An awesome experience...Let's hope they do this every year.
