Seattle – I attended the All-Star Game at Safeco in 2002 and was really looking forward to a return visit. What I found was simply yet another Camden Yards knockoff in a city that is crazed with lime green and football. The vaunted sunset deck in left field was tiny. The bowl of the stadium is kind of sleepy. It’s just another shiny new-ish stadium that lacks historical context and charm. Friendly people, beautiful city, nice enough stadium. But nothing special going on here from a vibe standpoint…unless you say the word “Seahawks”…
