Best sports venue?

Postby The Great Gambini » Mon Jan 02, 2006 2:26 pm

If you had to choose from all the places you've seen athletic competitions, what was your favorite?

What is one stadium you'd love to go to?

Cameron Indoor Stadium

I realize this isn't football related but watching a Duke basketball game in the famed Cameron Indoor Stadium was awesome. I often wish we were back in North Carolina so I could go to more games.

I like Safeco Field the best... Qwest Field is really nice too.

...wouldn't mind checkin' out Wrigley, Fenway, or Lambeau in person.

Being in the Chicago suburbs, I make it out to Wrigley between 5-10 times every year. Nothing compares to it. Well, playing at the University of Illinois's Memorial Stadium for the state football championship came close.

Heinz Field, the weather can be brutal but it's a nice facility and the energy there is unreal. :-)

Only other place that I've been to recently is Bryce Jordan Center where they play hoops at Penn State... saw 311 in concert there. Those seats in that place are at such a degree that I thought I might fall over if I leaned forward...kind of unnerving. :-o

That's like Comiskey Park (White Sox) until the renovations a year or two ago. In the upper deck behind homeplate...wow. I was up there as a kid running around at a typical empty Sox game with a buddy, and I was so scared I was just going to go tumbling down 300 feet to the death.

I remember going to the BOB the year after it was built. It was pretty cool at that time. I also ended up going to Tiger stadium, that was pretty sweet seeing something classic like that. Good times. Other than that, the Metrodome just plain sucks.

Ha...have you ever been to the Astrodome? Sure, it may have been a prime dome in it's time, but man that place sucked. On top of that I had to watch the Oilers :~(

Anyway, the only stadium I go to now is Fedex Field.

I would like to see a game in QWest Field. It seems pretty cool. ;-D
