    Sure was! It was called Olympic Stadium for a reason.

    Sure looks like it, the white uniforms also makes us believe that it was taken in Montreal

    Expos catcher Gary Carter was born on this date in 1954. Was this picture taken on Olympic Stadium's old warning track?

    Expo-necrophilia is alive and "well"!
    The monument to Drapeau is no better or worse than it was when the franchise left.
    As was the case the last few years, drive up the demand for a product that has been withheld for a decade or more and
    ration the availability with 2 openings and it's no surprise that the sheep come a runnin'!
    Doesn't hurt that the Canadiens suck and it's still winter either.
    Jayz through Rogers are pushing their brand into Quebec, they found promoters who can make it happen and VoilĂ !
    there's "demand" for scheduled (and post-season) tix prices for games that don't count.
    It's still MLB's "dark side of the moon".

    Seeing the immaculate mechanical condition of the stadium makes you think of this place in a better light. Wow. That is some engineering!

    I know that one can access the pool from the stadium through a door. Do you happen to know if there is an underground connection between the Biodome and the stadium?
    Good question, I don't think so, however im not certain

    No, the bullpens were on the warning tracks. (Link to image)

    My thanks to all who have contributed to this thread with photos and videos from the past weekend. Particularly love all the shots and clips of the concourses and support areas of the Big O.

    It's been a blast!

    The only time I went to Olympic Stadium was when I was in college in Upstate NY - it was the 2nd game of the 1988 season so it was early April in Montreal. I don't recall it being particularly hot or cold in the stadium - the one photo I have of me at the game is sitting in a Mets BP jersey so it was warm enough in the building to sit without a coat on with the roof closed.
