Transcript Too many Stadiums HOUSTON IS BECOMING A PREMIER SPORTS TOWN With two stadiums being completed two years apart from each other and a third on the way, it was hard not to recognize Houston as a city of sports and stadiums. On the other hand with the ongoing problems in the city, people felt like the stadiums should take a back seat to repairs. "We should be spending time and money on something more beneficial to Houston, such as freeway construction," said freshman education major Angie Cortes. With the ongoing construction this issue was of grave importance to some. Others felt that the stadiums in Houston were important to the city's pride and reputation. "Its great to be known for great things such as stadiums. They're great tourist attractions and excellent boosters for Houston's economy. They offer the city many things in many forms," said sophomore management information systems major Maudee Escalante During 2002 Houston had four major stadiums: Minute Maid Park completed in 2000 was formerly Enron Field until 2002 when the energy company Enron declared bankruptcy. Obviously the stadium had to be renamed and was bought by Minute Maid, in the summer of 2002. The stadium offered a retractable roof and housed Houston Astros Baseball games. The controvesy over the name remained. "I would have named the stadium Astros Field, or after someone who had a great impact on Houston's history, but not Minute Maid Park," said junior English and philosophy major Francois Luong. Reliant Stadium completed in 2002, was the newest addition and housed Houston's new football team, the Texans as well as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Popular to Texans' fans, it had a retractable roof. The Astrodome completed in 1965, housed the Houston Oilers' and Houston Astros as well as the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The Compaq Center, completed in 1975 was formerly called the Summit until 1997. It housed many concerts, from Bruce Springsteen to the Rolling Stones. I was home to the Houston Aeros' and NCAA Champions the Houston Rockets' basketball games. Many choked up Houstonians called the Compaq Center the Summit and refused to acknowledge Reliant Stadium as the premier futuristic stadium in the world. True Houstonians would more than likely fight tooth and nail to keep their historical names and stadiums. "Tell France to get rid of the Eiffel Tower, then we'll talk about getting rid of the Astrodome," said Luong. -Jennifer Mosquedo In ftrodome was originally called the Harris County ■horned Stadium, housing the Astros inside, ■houstonians argued over what the dome could be used |tor since the city had new stadiums. „ u ^ , -Kathy Sienko AmMimmm
