The Houston Astrodome Opened In 1965, And The Experience Must Have Been Strange (www.sbnation.com)

In 1965 the Houston Astros unveiled a futuristic stadium, the likes of which had never before been seen or heard or smelled or touched or sixth-sensed. The Astrodome was a gigantic, indoor, air conditioned Stadium of the Future, with real grass and a $2 million animated scoreboard. It was called the Eighth Wonder of the World and became the third most frequented man-made tourist destination — look out Mount Rushmore!

What was it like for fans to experience this marvel of architecture back in 1965? Only one way to find out — the 1965 Yelp Reviews of The Astrodome.
