Happy Opening Day

So that’s not happening, yet

Remember the Kingdome

We had plans to gather with 30 or so friends to celebrate the start of the baseball season today. But, we got derailed with everyone else.

So we will have to content ourselves with celebrating, by ourselves, the 20th anniversary of the implosion of the Kingdome!

The Kingdome holds a special place in our family’s heart. We spent so much time in the building that it was like a member of the family. Like an eccentric uncle. Or crazy husband.

Note: not an N95 mask

That’s our Kingdome hat. The only one we completed. Anyone want a grey beanie?

The Kingdome permeated our kid’s lives.

Our decor

Until it was gone.

To the tune of Sgt. Peppers Heart Club Band. Click on the link – it will open up a new window, then hit the play arrow, and switch back to this page to see the new words. Sgt Peppers Music

It was 20 years ago today

And the M’s and us were going to play

Now we’re stuck inside our homes

In married pairs or all alone.

Let me just say to you,

This Baseball Season’s really through,

And the 2020 season’s going to blow up too.

We are the Kingdome Cretins from way back,

And we wanted to enjoy the show,

We are the Kingdome Cretins from way back,

But it’s just an empty T-Mo.

Kingdome and the Mariners,

Kingdome and the Mariners,

Kingdome and the Mariners from way back.

It’d be wonderful to be there,

It’d certainly be a thrill,

We’re such a lovely fan base,

We’d like to see a game with you,

We’d love to see a game.

I didn’t really want to miss the show,

But Covid-19 made it so,

That life’s more important than a game,

And 2020’s such a shame.

Let me just say to you,

This Baseball Season’s really through,

And the 2020 Season’s going to blow up too!

HAPPY OPENING DAY

    I saw Led Zeppelin in the Kingdome in 1976. And also attended some sporting events there.

    That was great- I know baseball is the common thread in all the family’s being. We’ll have that back eventually- hooray 😁
