The O2 is a large entertainment district including an indoor arena, a music club, a cinema, an exhibition space, piazzas and bars and restaurants, built within a large dome-shaped building (formerly the Millennium Dome), on the Greenwich peninsula in south-east London, England.So before you laugh off the Brown-Bean proposal, keep in mind which way the winds are blowing in Seattle. The region is going to want a basketball and hockey team. It's going to be fully commercialized, privately built. It probably won't be able to survive the resistance (both political and the famous Seattle process) in Seattle and so will be somewhere like Tukwila. The money will be out-of-state. And it will cannibalize Seattle Center in the process. No laughing matter.
