Stadiums You've Visited

Tue Apr 11, 2006 3:36 am

Let's hear it. Which stadiums have you visited? Which was your favorite? BTW your local high school stadium or rec park doesn't count. Here's my list:

  • Estadio Pacaembu (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
  • Ginasio do Ibirapuera (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
  • Estadio do Ibirapuera (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
  • Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium (Austin, TX)
  • Frank Erwin Center (Austin, TX)
  • Disch-Falk Field (Austin, TX)
  • Dell Diamond (Round Rock, TX)
  • Alamodome (San Antonio, TX)
  • SBC Center (San Antonio, TX)
  • Freeman Coliseum (San Antonio, TX)
  • Soldier Field (Chicago, IL)
  • AA Arena (Dallas, TX)
  • Cotton Bowl (Dallas, TX)
  • United Center (Chicago, IL)
  • Pepsi Center (Denver, CO)
  • Miller Park (Milwaukee, WI)
  • Kohl Center (Madison, WI)

My favorite was probably either the Pepsi Center or the Kohl Center. I think my experience at the Pepsi Center was cool because I had good seats, despite the fact that the seats there are really narrow, but the Kohl Center seemed like a very nice, fan-friendly facility, especially for hockey.

I have been to 3 major league baseball stadiums:

1) Busch Stadium (St. Louis, MO) (now demolished) My all-time favourite, because I am a lifelong fan of the St. Louis Cardinals ever since I started going to St. Louis for my frequent facial reconstructive surgeries (at St. Louis Children's Hospital). Since I fell in love with St. Louis at first sight in 1982, I naturally adopted the Cardinals as my favourite baseball team. I finally attended a Cardinals game at Busch Stadium in 2002--a dream realised!

2) Wrigley Stadium (Chicago, IL) During a CCA (Children's Craniofacial Association) Family Retreat in Chicago (1996), one of our activities was to attend a Cubs game there. Our whole large group got to watch the Cubs in batting practice before the game (against the Reds).

3) Great American Ballpark (Cincinnati, OH) In 2003, our church men's group attended a Reds game there (against the Astros).

Also, in Fort Wayne, IN, my hometown, we have an A-level minor league affiliate of the San Diego Padres, called the Fort Wayne Wizards. Our beautiful stadium (built in 1993) is nicknamed "The Castle", and I attend at least one home game every year.

but the Kohl Center seemed like a very nice, fan-friendly facility, especially for hockey.

It was made for hockey, really. I still miss the old Dane County coliseum, but no question the Kohl Center is one of the finest venues in all of college sports.

A short list for me, but here it is:

  • Veteran's Stadium (deceased) - Philadelphia, PA
  • The Spectrum - Philadelphia, PA
  • Corestates/First Union/Wachovia Center - Philadelphia, PA
  • Lincoln Financial Field - Philadelphia, PA
  • Franklin Field - Philadelphia, PA
  • Madison Square Garden - New York City, NY
  • Camden Yards - Baltimore, MD

Oddly enough, I have yet to take in a game at Citizens Bank Park, also in Philadelphia, even though I've been to every other venue down there, lol. I've been to 2 & 3 so many times I've lost count, haha. I'd really like to get to some other venues, but that'll have to wait, I guess.

I have visited the Westpac Stadium in Wellington and that new flash one in Cardiff, both as part of DoE conferences. I cannot imagine why anyone would want to go and visit another one.

Going there to watch a match or game, fair enough but visiting one as an entity in itself is not an experience I would care to repeat, there is too much drying paint in the world for stadiums to compete.  Smile

Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium
Cotton Bowl
Arlington Stadium
The Ballpark in Arlington
Wrigley Field
Busch Stadium
Kiel (Savvis) Center
Family Arena (St. Charles, MO for the St. Charles River Otters)
Reunion Arena
American Airlines Center
Texas Stadium

Kiel was great. Close in, dark, and loud as hell. Just the way a hockey arena should be. Reunion was like that too. AAC...not so much. Way too airy and light. Hockey arenas should be cold, they should be dark, and they should be absolutely rockin'.

Ok, lets see...(yes, stadiums that Ive seen more than one sport in will be repeated) a stadiumphile, I try to visit the local major sports stadiums/arenas when out of town, even if I cant see a game....

-Wachovia Center (Flyers)

-Giants Stadium (Giants/Jets)
-Dolphins Stadium (Dolphins)
-Raymond James Stadium (Bucs)
-Alltel Stadium (Jaguars)
-Invesco Field @ Mile High (Broncos)

-Sun Devil Stadium (old Cardinals, same deal as Bears)

-The Vet (old Philles)
-Citizens Bank Park (new Phillies)
-Coors Field (Rockies)
-Jack Murphy Stadium (old Padres, let into visit without seeing a game (and yes, when I was there it was still JM and not yet Qualcomm)
-Dolphins Stadium (Marlins)
-Memorial Stadium (old Orioles)
-Camden Yards (new Orioles)
-Fenway park (Red Sox)
-Wrigley Field (Cubs)
-Skydome (Blue Jays) (took tour, no game, was before it was called Rogers Centre)
-Turner Field (Braves) (tour only)

College Football:
-Folsom Field (my very own Colorado Buffaloes)
- Orange Bowl (Miami Hurricanes)
- DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium (Texas)
- Villanova Stadium (Villanova - I-AA football)
- Florida Citrus Bowl (UCF, but saw the Champs Sports Bowl there)

Future College Football visits planned for the 2006 season:
- Sanford Stadium (UGA)
- Gaylord Family - Memorial Stadium (Oklahoma)
- Memorial Stadium (Nebraska)

College Basketball:
-Coors Events/Conference Center (my own Colorado Buffs!)
-Moby Arena (Colorado State)
-Pepsi Center (Colorado Classic mini-tournament)
-BankAtlantic Center (Orange Bowl Classic mini-tournament)

College Hockey:

-Colorado Springs World Arena (Colorado College)

On the pro level, my favorites are probably Citizens Bank Park and Alltel Stadium...on the college level, believe it or not my favorite thus far was probably Texas Memorial at CU, both our football and basketball facilities are total pieces of shit (although the Orange Bowl was even more of a piece of shit, comfortingly enough!), but it was a pleasure to stroll through Texas Memorial Stadium despite the shitty outcome of the game time CU plays Texas there in 4 years, Ill definitely be back for another visit!

Pictures of Folsom Field, the Orange Bowl, DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium, Invesco Field @ Mile High and Moby Arena can be found in this album:

and the Florida Citrus Bowl can be found here:

Unfortunately youtube isnt being too cooperative at the moment or I'd put up videos of Moby Arena and Texas Memorial Stadium that I shot while there....
