Well if it is, it's not getting great reviews from Mountain listeners. We got a chance to see the latest design proposal for the NBA arena that our billionaire buddy Chris Hansen wants to build in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. It's supposed to be very environmentally friendly -- the building would capture rainwater and re-use it, and it would use the sun for solar heating and to generate energy for the surrounding neighborhood. That's all great. But . . . .what's the heck is that supposed to be on top?
Here are some of the more creative interpretations from listeners on The Mountain's Facebook page:
*Looks like a cake.
*It looks like a vegetable steamer rack.
*I'm looking for giant flames to blast out of the center. *Ritz crackers go in the middle?
*It looks like a bacon wrapped roast.
*Looks like a piece of sushi sitting on a bed of greens.
*At first I thought it was a creative cracker/dip bowl....mmm, guess not!
*Looks like cold cuts.
*Sand worm eating a spice harvester!
*Nice bread bowl! The only thing missing is a spoon!
In all fairness, this is a view from above, which we won't see from street level. In fact, it has a very dramatic glass wall that welcomes you and opens up the interior to people looking in from outside. But that roof -- ouch.
