Dodgers - 200 000 000 6 - 8 11 2 Expos - 000 100 100 0 - 2 5 1Now I can update my 21 Ball Parks post! ... 1977 was the first year the Expos played in the Big O, after the Summer Olympics the previous summer.
I was 13 years old and I guess I went by myself, on a Vermont Transit bus. (I have a memory of being at Olympic Stadium with my younger brother, but he would have been only five in 1977, so that game was probably in '79 or '80.)
Going to Montreal so early in my baseball fandom -- when actually being at a game was truly an amazing event; who the hell cared what they played on! -- gave me a soft spot* for domed stadiums. I don't like Skydome for many reasons, but being in the actual building with the roof closed is not one of them. The only other dome I have been in -- the Kingdome in Seattle -- resembled a huge prison complex from the outside, but walking in and seeing the green carpet brought back warm memories of Montreal.
* Or at least not a complete hatred and disgust. I would never prefer a dome & turf stadium for my team, but I don't have a visceral dislike of them. (I remember liking that the lanes for the Olympic track events were still there, by the backstop and along the walk-in dugouts.)

The Big O was also the scene for the greatest game I have ever personally witnessed. The Dodgers won that game in extra innings, as well.
