Outdoor stadiums... Remember Empire?

I was thinking yesterday about how rad it would be to have an outdoor stadium where people could watch football/soccer/concerts etc... Sometimes the dome just doesn't cut it.

Then I remembered how awesome it is that we're finally going to get BC Place updated to be an indoor/outdoor venue... so we don't have to wait too long.

But then I started thinking about Empire Stadium. Remember Empire, at the PNE?! With the warped field, hard backless benches and the 3 (seemingly) toilets, it was still fun... If it was sunny, you got burnt, rainy, you got drenched. The wind whipped through and it was as bare as the prairies...

Man, even though it was pretty janky and looked worse than the wooden roller coaster... I still miss Empire!
