So what's everyone's favorite stadium?

Been to:
USCF
Wrigley
GABP
Milwaukee County
Tiger
Metrodome
Comerica
Target
Nats
Skydome (just a tour)

Target was awesome! The concourses are ****ing massive! They're like triple the width of the Cell's, so gotta be like 4 times bigger than Wrigley's. So much space to move around even in a packed house. You can also see the whole field from anywhere on the concourse, there's like a big ring around the whole thing. So anywhere you are you can stand against the wall and see the game, and the bullpens are kinda out in the open there too. We also had diamond level seats or whatever they're called, like the 1st 10 or rows around the infield, which gives you access to private concessions and bathrooms so you don't need to go all the way back up to the concourse.

Been to GABP twice and went to Nationals last year. Both are incredibly bland. If you think the Cell isn't unique, you wouldn't think either of these are either.

Comerica was a long time ago. My biggest memories are of the ferris wheel and merry-go-round, LOL.

I've been to: Wrigley, Cell, Metrodome (yuck), both Busch, Minute Maid, Great American, PNC, Coors, Miller, Kauffman, Dodger Stadium, Chase, and the A's ****hole

By far the best was PNC, would recommend to everyone. Our hotel was literally across the street from the park, the area around the park is fantastic, and the actual stadium itself is a beauty.

Worst stadium was the Metrodome, and worst experience was Minute Maid. Houston sucked.

Baseball:
Comerica

Miller Park
County Stadium
Busch Stadium
Old Busch Stadium

Soccer:
Crew Stadium
RFK
Stamford Bridge
Parkhead
NHL:
Joe Louis

Best: Neyland Stadium, amazing atmosphere and the fans are nuts with tailgating which is my pastime. Parkhead (Celtics home park in Scotland) a close second because I've always been a Hoops fan.

Worst: Tropicana Field, the dome is so thin you feel like you're outside even though you aren't. The only people who know what I'm talking about have been there

After we won the Cup in Philly, I found a site that was selling framed pictures of the team on the ice in Philly, with a piece of the net from the game clinching game. Can't for the life of me remember where I bought it, and no idea where the proof of authenticity is... Anyone see anything like that for this previous Cup? Would love to get another one and put them next to each other.

Grandstand in Bridgeport was selling those in 2010. No idea if they ship though.

I won't rank the best stadiums I've been to, but the one that left me the most impressed was AutoZone Park in Memphis. Downright fantastic facility, especially for a minor league team.

There is a huge Cardinals following in Tennessee, I'm sure that's part of the reason why

I've been to Wrigley, the Cell, and Busch (on a tour). Wrigley almost made me ill, USC was quite good, and Busch was downright gorgeous.

Meh.... Civ 5 keeps crashing on me whenever I get into the 1600s or so.

Might have to do with me playing on the largest world settings, but thought I had lowered enough of the settings to handle that.

Dece. Nice slow day at work, thanks to the start of the month being significantly slower at work.
