I drove past Reliant Stadium on Friday coming back to my office from lunch, and with the car windows up, the air conditioning on, and music playing, all I could hear was the noise of the cars coming from the Houston Grand Prix. Later, in my office, which is several blocks away on the other side of Reliant Stadium, I could still hear it through the thick glass in our building. I can't ever recall hearing any other external noises from inside our building, not even when they were constructing Reliant. That's pretty damn loud.
I say all that to say I have a lot of sympathy for the folks who live nearby and who must have gone crazy from the noise. At least it's all over now.Posted by Charles Kuffner on April 23, 2007 to Other sports
