Remembering the Kingdome

On the 20th anniversary of the demolition of the Kingdome, we reminisce about Seattle’s multipurpose indoor stadium with ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz, who talks about working as a vendor at the Kingdome during the summer of 1994. A re-airing of a classic debate about the Kingdome between Kevin and Tristan follows.
