America’s Most Significant Sports Venue?

April 2, 2012 by staff 

America’s Most Significant Sports Venue?, The first thing you notice on the drive into New Orleans is the giant bronze spaceship that’s landed at the foot of a modest skyline. It’s sleek, shiny, windowless, and in a town bursting with old-world character and charm, fits in like a disco ball in a room full of rocking chairs.

At first glance, it’s an oddity more than a marvel, which is maybe why, despite all the evidence in its favor, no one’s really noticed that over the last 30-plus years the Superdome has become the most historically significant sporting venue in America.

You want seminal moments? The Superdome is where a college freshman named Michael Jordan nailed a jumper to lift North Carolina over Georgetown; it’s where Roberto Duran told Sugar Ray Leonard, “No m?s”; it’s where William “The Refrigerator” Perry barreled into the end zone in Super Bowl XX; it’s where Chris Webber called a timeout Michigan didn’t have; it’s where Adam Vinatieri kicked a field goal as time ran out to give Tom Brady his first Super Bowl win.
