There's a Super Dramatic Video of the New Sun Devil Stadium (If That's Your Thing)

Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 at 9:56 PM

I'm not super-invested in the whole Arizona vs. Arizona State (aka Girls Gone Wild University and Casino) thing — after all I graduated from Oregon State, one of the top two universities in the state of Oregon — and of course, anything created to hype a giant fundraising project is going to indulge in a bit of overdramatics, but the language in the above video, showing off renderings of the forthcoming renovation of Sun Devil Stadium, is truly spectacular. It takes "bravery" to have the vision to take a ton of money and fix up an outdated home for an occasionally successful football program, complete with giant screens and escalators?

"We are not the first Sun Devils. And we won't be the last. Our inheritance is here; a gift to our generation." Where can I hand over my life savings, Michael Crow? I want my lasting contribution to society to be a slab of concrete that will be outdated a few years after its built. Tough break, cancer research projects!

Sigh.
