Best sports venue?

Moderator: Football Moderators

I'll only comment on venues that I have been to. Out of the Seattle market, I've only been to the St. Louis Arena (At least that's what I think it was called). That being said.

Safeco Field #1

Places I would like to see:
Cameron Indoor
Safeco

Best Places I have been to:

Jordan-Haire (there really isn't anything special about this stadium as far as architecture or appearence. But as a big fan of Auburn, there isn't a better experience than being there when they let the eagle fly ;-D )

Other Places I liked:

Tampa Bay's stadium (forgot the name)
Arrowhead Stadium
Turner Field (largest jumbotron in the world)

ehhhh it's just not the same now that lights have been installed. :-o

I'm really too much of a homer to add anything other than the obvious local parks, such as FedEx Field Home of the Washington Redskins, though having only 1 set of escalalators for 92,000 people is really absurd. RFK was amazing back when the Skins played there you literally would bouce in the stands.
Camden Yards home of the Orioles is a really nice stadium.

I wish I could've seen old soldier field I bet that place was amazing and 3 rivers stadium.


I agree. Too bad the O's suck but they play in one heck of a nice stadium. There really isn't a bad seat. Just a great place to kick back and watch a ball game.

I really want to see a game at the Horseshoe, what a nice stadium. Much jealousy to those who have been there :~(

Please....The Swamp wins these rankings nearly every time.

Sports Illustrated on Campus rates them:
1. Florida
2. LSU
3. Texas A&M
4. Tennessee

I believe ESPN's were similar, with LSU and A&M swapping positions and Ohio State coming in at #5.

And while I know this is going to start an arguement with all the UM fans around here, but Michigan commonly wins the most overrated award in those types of articles. Sorry fellas.

I haven't been to that many college football stadiums, but I've been to The Swamp 4-5 times. I was at the 2 OT Vanderbilt game this year and it was LOUD!

Pretty hard for me to judge though without experiencing exciting/close games in other stadiums.

That's why I would have to go with what SI says.

I want to make it to PNC park this summer, I have heard that is a great place.

Best and craziest stadium I have ever been to is Tiger Stadium "Death Valley" home of LSU

By the way, Im a die hard Cub fan and I can't wait til they tear down Wrigley, that place is a dump
