Oh, that might be overstating it. I think I'd actually give my "most scenic setting" award to Real Salt Lake's Rio Tinto Stadium, at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. And I'm sure there are many dazzler's I've never seen. But Stadium Bowl sure has to be in the conversation. The Tacoma Tide played their first game in their new home tonight.

The Tide and SeaWolves played to a 2-2 draw.
