KINGDOME OPENS TO MIXED REVIEWS
Published November 7, 1994
The "re-opening of the Kingdome went off without a hitch," but some fans wished more had been done during the $40M repair job on the facility. Seahawk fan Doug Hostetter: "I'm not complaining, but for that much money, you'd think it would look a lot better. It looks the same to me." The only "visible difference was a beige ceiling that replaced the old-grayish white one." Some fans wore hard hats to mark the event. Brian Kasen, construction manager: "It's nice to see people back in the seats after a very intense effort" (Jim Street, SEATTLE POST- INTELLIEGNCER, 11/7).
