BBVA Compass Stadium is set to open in 101 short days. This week, seats will start getting installed and work will begin on laying down the pitch. Here's a quick video from HoustonDynamo.com on progress. (Hard for me to listen to these guys as I keep looking at the area where my seats are going to be!)
If this doesn't temporarily get your mind off the lack of big name signings, nothing will.
UPDATE: Here are Facebook pictures of the installation of drainage and irrigation systems.
