Lunchtime distraction: 35 pictures of orange greatness

BBVA

The brand new BBVA Compass Stadium, just beyond the downtown Houston core, opens in one month and a day.

For the stadium geeks like myself, opiate-like feelings of magic and joyness wash over us with each new soccer structure launch.

One word of warning before you examine a new batch of photos: if you have some bizarre aversion to orange, best just move along. Nothing to see here — except orange seats, orange concourses, orange concession areas, orange draping, orange … well, you probably get the picture.

Thirty-one days out of the May 12 opener (vs. D.C. United), enjoy this delightful photo-walk through of BBVA Compass Stadium, courtesy of the Houston Chronicle.

    For an attractive architectural outside stadium design, the same can’t be said about the inside of the stadium compared to other venues whom indoor design enhances the stadium in many ways. I just hope the Dynamo are certain the’ll be getting continuous sold- out games; Otherwise, that orange color will stand out too much if no butts are sitting on those seats at Dynami games.

    With so much Orange color engulfing the Dynamo, it only makes sense to get Tropicana as a shirt or main sponsor. :)
