Well, so it DID happen: I had to go to the new football (soccer) stadium in Gdansk, the PGE Arena …
Probably I was the only one in town that did not undergo this general hysteria of admiration for this “miracle of technology and engineering”.
A stadium is a stadium.
The most important is who is “doing” the atmosphere… And this here is bad. Bad – very bad in every respect. Not to say embarrassing. Even the football team is embarrasingly weak…
Well, nevertheless the stadium is nice. The beauty of it can not be denied.
