^^^^ I thought that was the Expos baseball team, lol.
Nope, the stadium earned the nickname Big Owe because it ended up being a huge waste of taxpayer funds. In fact, by the time it was fully paid off, the Expos had already moved to Washington. See here.

I'm sure some people will have some fond memories of the Montreal stand - even if they are just Emerson, Lake & Palmer fans
