Stade Olympique Review
Montrealers finished paying for their Olympic stadium (dubbed the "Big O") in the spring of 2006—30 years after the games it was built for—but they still call it the Big Owe, and not very affectionately, either. It certainly looks dramatic, squatting like a giant flying saucer in the middle of the east end. But the place is hard to heat, it's falling apart, and the saga of the retractable roof—it worked precisely three times—is a running joke for local comics. Abandoned by the baseball and football teams it was supposed to house, the stadium is now used mostly for trade shows.
