It's called "show off to the West"! Dictators usually need somewhere other than the main square of their capital city to do some Rally and "show off" how much his people "support" him!  Yeah sure (that sounds closely to Prez Kirchner  Yeah sure)

Well let's start with Columbia, South Carolina my hometown.


Williams-Brice Stadium (Home of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks Football team)

http://webzoom.freewebs.com/waccamatt/usc%20colonial%20center.jpg
The Colonial Center (Home of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks Men's & Women's Basketball teams)

The Carolina Coliseum (Home of the Columbia Inferno ice hockey team (ECHL))


Capital City Stadium (Former home of the Columbia Mets/Capital City Bombers baseball team (SAL), current home of the Columbia Blowfish baseball team (CPL))

Onto Raleigh, North Carolina




RBC Center (Home of the Carolina Hurricanes ice hockey team (NHL) and the North Carolina State University Wolfpack Men's Basketball team)


Carter-Finley Stadium (Home of the North Carolina State University Wolfpack Football team)


Doak Field (Home of the North Carolina State University Wolfpack Baseball team)


SAS Soccer Park (Home of the North Carolina State University Wolfpack Women's Soccer team

Alas, I couldn't find any pics of where the Men's team plays, Method Road Soccer Field - probably because it's ghetto...a field and some bleachers and that's about it. There's some talk of the men's team moving to SAS as well or perhaps to the field current track, which is being renovated.

I've also chosen not to include pics from Durham (Durham Bulls Athletic Park, Wallace Wade Stadium, Jack Coombs Field, Cameron Indoor Stadium, Koskinen Stadium), Chapel Hill (Kenan Stadium, Dean E. Smith Center, Boshamer Stadium, Fetzer Field), or Zebulon (Five Counties Stadium) because 1) I don't want my post to be too humongous and 2) I don't live in those towns, I live in Raleigh
