The Kingdome was promised as Seattle's very own "8th Wonder of the World" akin to what the Astrodome brought to Houston Texas. It was hardly that. Despite its many negative qualities (and we'll tell you about each and every one of them) the Kingdome would rise to a certain level of respect thanks in part to the exploits of Ken Griffey Jr., Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez, Randy Johnson and Edgar Martinez and what was in many ways perhaps the worst acoustics of any stadium in the world.
