I love MSG anyway, inside and out. But I have been to some pretty damn nice arenas around the country.
I don't think the sponsoring of a stadium brings in mega bucks to make a huge difference. I could be wrong, but I think its low 7 figures per year.
What I see in common are stadiums and arenas being built where they have leeway to create a beautiful building.
Let's face it. If the Rangers are going to be in Manhattan, they're kind of limited as far as an imaginative, modern building is concerned.
Just look at that sequence of pics. The stadium is the largest building in all of them. MSG looks, literally, like a hockey puck between those skyscrapers.
