Yahoo! Sports Radio features a weekend show called "Stadiums USA." I was invited to talk about the Astrodome in conjunction with the Game of the Century. I taped the interview last week, the show aired this past weekend, and now the audiotape of the show has been posted on the Stadiums USA website. Here is a link to the show's archived broadcasts (see the show where it says "Posted March 15, 2016"). My interview begins right around the 30-minute mark. During the interview, I alluded to how the basketball court for the UCLA-Houston showdown was placed smack-dab in the middle of the vast Astrodome field, with no seats added between the court and the permanent seats ringing the field. Here is a photo I found of the arrangement. I think you'd agree that it would have been difficult to see what was taking place on the court, especially from the upper deck!
