More worst places:

United Center - You're too far from the action and the concourses get all smokey. Food selection is decent though.

Michigan Stadium - Yes, it's big. We get it. But try getting in and out of the place. Also, you end up with only a few inches of "buttspace" for your seat so you really can't even think of going for concessions. Or using the bathrooms.

I saw the Stones twice at Rupp. I don't even remember how to get there.

School was out and the highway between Louisville and Lexington was nothing but partying concertgoers, including topless coeds/teenyboppers. What a country!

Actually, Death Valley is my favorite football away venue, especially tailgating under the flagpole. You can keep the PBR though.

Metrodome.



That and the SkyDome are like the only two MLB parks where baseball is played on Astroturf if I'm not mistaken.

Tropicana Field - worst

Close the thread.



You've never been to Shea Stadium, have you?

Rich Stadium in Buffalo is one of the worst too.

Best go to SBC park in San Fran, and Safeco Field in Seattle.

Back when it was the first of the "new" ballparks Skydome was outstanding.

The SkyDome had grass last summer when I went. Then again, it was a footy game.

True, and by that I mean the original or European not the American sport, football is supposed to be played on real grass if I'm not mistaken. It's in the rulebooks that way right?

Thread hijack....



I've only seen one episode of Entourage, but when he said,

"Let's hug it out, bitch." I freaking died laughing. One of the funniest new lines I've heard in eons.

Now back to your regularly scheduled nonsensical babbling.
