The Yale Dome?

Apparently Yale has plans to install artificial turf and lights at the Bowl . . . and to put a bubble dome over the top of the whole thing.  Yikes.

Just to clarify, the bubble would only be up during the winter - to allow it to be used for practices etc of various sports.

Yeah I know but the muckraker in me needs to post threads like, "The Yale Dome" just to, well, rake muck.  Plus it makes for a stupendous visual.  As an Honorary Pard you should know that by now, 137.  Rolling Eyes



EDIT:  I was born and raised in a somewhat rural place where hunting was as commonplace as little league baseball.  Then this rich family bought a big farm nearby and put up this giant house with a swimming pool that had this ridiculous bubble over the top so they could swim in the winter, I guess.  Nobody ever had seen anything like it.

So my two friends and I went full ranger and, in the deep snows of mid-January, sneaked up behind with a .17 Browning squirrel rifle.  We commenced to perforate the inflated monstrosity until it leaked like an old inner-tube.  I think we were about 10 or 11 years old.

I can't envision the "Yale Dome" without recalling that moment of youthful indiscretion and bad behavior.  Twisted Evil
