Wow I never knew The Trop and The Thunderdome were one in the same.

I didn't know about it either until looking at the history of the Lightning.

Yup the ice was right around the area between home plate and 1st.

I remember being so confused as a kid when my family went to Tampa in 98. I had different maps: one called it Tropicana Field, another the Suncoast Dome, and another the Thunderdome. My Dad was not too happy about me making him drive to St. Pete to watch a MLB expansion team. We had a white Taurus rental car and took quite a while to find it after the game!

I have been a huge fan of Millennium Stadium in Cardiff since it was opened. Very nice stadium indeed. But agreed on the rugby pitch, it tears up every match I see being played there during the Autumn test series. You think with the turf technology nowadays (real grass I mean), this would be a problem.

The Millennium Stadium is to get a new permanent Desso Grassmaster surface following a fly infestation.

Meanwhile here's a few more pics of its versatility:

As a side note, immediately next door at the aforementioned Cardiff Arms Park, this past season was the first year that Welsh rugby was played on a plastic pitch, the ultimate answer to the marshy banks of the river Taff. Complete with Boise State-style blue grass border.

Unlike most situations like this, this actually looks like a hockey-only arena at first glance

it is amazing how simple it seems to be for teams in Atlanta to get new stadiums built when every other city seems to be a battle

The Trop used the same orientation during the Final Four in 1999. I wanted to post a pic but couldn't find one.

Another side of the Thunderdome. Less hockey-looking here.

This is the game where Bill and Ted traveled to 1992 and their phonebooth appeared on the ice in front of 35,000 stunned St Petersburgers. I remember that game.

Tampa seems more interested in their hockey than their baseball

It's a long shot, but I don't care

Plus, from the picture of Tropicana Field/Thunderdome, the ice looks offcentred from the middle.
