"This place seems REALLY familiar ... I feel like I've been here before"

Although we as North Americans may find it hard to even consider using the pieces from an old stadium to assemble new digs for our favorite teams, the practice is quite common in Europe. The latest example of this "recycled stadium" approach will be on display in Vancouver this weekend, where the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League will call Empire Field their temporary home until their old home, BC Place, is ready for play in November 2011. Empire Field will then be dismantled and sent back to Switzerland, where it will surely find another team looking for short-term digs.

What do you think about this idea? Is this an idea that, like soccer (sorry, World Cup fanatics!), is only likely to take root across The Pond?
