Twitter users aren't fans of the Alamodome's aesthetics.
The Alamodome was at the top of readers' minds this week. And not in anticipation of the WWE's Royal Rumble filling its seats this weekend.

Nope. The Current's most-read story of the week was about a study ranking the domed stadium among the world's ugliest buildings. We're guessing that's a sentiment shared by plenty of San Antonians, who refer to the facility as the "Dead Armadillo" — and worse.

Plenty of folks also read up on potential legal trouble for a pair of Fiesta Rey Feyos, ex-Spur Dejounte Murray trashing his old team and a report naming the Alamo City one of the dirtiest metros in the country.

Read on for more political intrigue, smack talk and schadenfreude you may have missed while obsessing about the aesthetics of the Alamodome.
