Soon-to-be Browns owner Jimmy Haslam wants to look into putting a lid on the team’s stadium.  A pair of Cleveland architects (one of whom may or may not be named Art Vandalay) has an idea, according to

A geodesic dome.

Those of who you, like us, have committed to memory the lyrics of Who Needs The Kwik-E-Mart? may not have realized that a geodesic dome is actually, you know, a thing.  But it is.

In this case, it would be a 1,100-foot diameter half-sphere that would be constructed over the existing stadium.

“It’s open around the base and would allow fresh air to come in and it would allow heated air to be extracted near the top,” architect Geoffrey Varga said. “People would have to dress for the normal weather conditions. However, you’re not going to be rained on and you’re not going to be snowed on but if it was winter, you would wear winter clothes.”

It sounds like a fancy car port.  And the idea probably will never get out of the garage.
