IF YOU BUILD IT, WILL THE FOOTBALL COME?


In downtown San Antonio sits the Alamodome, a 65,000-seat facility that opened in 1993 for a cost of 186 million. Following the field of dreams philosophy, the city, eager to have a professional football franchise pushed to complete the Texas size facility, thinking "if we build it, they will come." This huge facility has the ability to host several events at once. "If we believe it strong enough, if we believe it long enough, if we believe, our faith will make it happen."


Apparently not. This month at the Alamodome, you could see a monster truck show, a boat show, or the national championship of cheerleading, but you can't see a professional football game. Over 20 years since the Alamodome's conception, and San Antonio has failed to attract a professional football team.
