Ahh what fun that was.....the good ol' days.
Hey Sticky, I'll throw you my one Kingdome experience. I saw the Sox play the M's there in 1986. Jim Presley won it for Seattle in the bottom of the 9th with a walk-off grand slam of Boston junkballer Bob (The Steamer) Stanley.
It was my first time seeing an indoor baseball game, I don't think I ever adjusted to it during the whole game. I kept feeling like I was at a hockey game.
By the way, I wore my Sox cap to the game, and it was mid-to-late-season and the Sox were on their way to the post season, and Mariners fans all around me were very respectful. I got a lot of "good luck to the Sox, but not TODAY!"
Also, the peanut vendor had a great arm, threw the bags from a section away, then threw you a tennis ball with a slot cut in the side for you to put the money in. Once you threw it back, if you needed change, he made change in the tennis ball and hummed it back at you. It was great.
