What are everyone's favorite sports venues?

Personally:
Yankee Stadium- The history! Of the most prestigious franchise of all time...
Safeco- I heard this is a very nice stadium.
MSG- Home of the loveable (or not so) losers, The Knickerbockers!
The baseball park in SF is gorgeous as well...

Carrier Dome-Syracuse, NY
PNC Park- Pittsburgh
and I'd say Shea Stadium in NYC because I love the Mets, but as biased as I am, that place is a dump.

Lol true Shea is disgusting. Its awesome that the Yankees and Mets are getting new stadiums. Wish I could say the same for our football teams.

Hands down, LSU's Tiger Stadium on any given Saturday night in October for a LSU home game. It is a life-changing experience.

Best ballpark? I'm a bit partial to my hometown Ameriquest Field, but I just went to a Mariners game at Safco last week and I have to say, it's pretty damn nice.

Baseball - WRIGLEY (likely my top overall over all stadiums)
PNC - Pitt. (best of the new stadiums)
AT&T - San Fran (Giats stad. of course)
Fenway - Boston
(many great stadiums to chose from that could be top tier)

Football - Qwest - Seattle
Soldier Field - Chicago
Reliant - Houston (outside not great, but inside very nice)
(many great stadiums as well, the new AZ and Indy stadiums look like they will be real nice)

Basketball/Hockey
- Pepsi Area (Atlanta) - love the unique seating set up. Outside is nice too.
- AA Arena (Dallas) love the outside. Inside is meh
- Conseco Fieldhouse - Indy (unique, good looking, "retro")
- MSG - NYC (the stadium is just so so but best location in the U.S.)
(most of the new arenas are rather bland and underwhelming in N.A.)

Our two stadiums (Safeco Field and Qwest Field) are both good.

it's gotta be wrigley. this place is stadium perfection. i was just there this afternoon and even though the cubs were annihilated by the brewers in a dreary game played in the rain, wrigley was still magical.

man, i fucking love this place:

citizens bank park in philly and petco park in san diego are regarded by many to be the best stadiums in all of baseball.

lincoln financial field is a very nice football stadium. i've heard great things about qwest field in seattle, i think most people regard this stadium as the best in football.

i've heard good things about conseco field house in indianapolis for basketball. as far as basketball and hockey go, i think this is where the arenas are most similar to each other.

Wrigley Field?
spyguy, that one just might make it past a 1970's era retrofitting of the original House that Ruth Built, a dump in the Bronx that is about to be replaced with a new Yankee Stdium at that.

someone has to agree miller park should be up in the ranks....its quite unique
UWM, I believe the place you are referring to is offically known as "Wrigley North" whenever the Cubs play the Brewers!
:bash:

xz, i think most folks with give the edge to AT&T (or SBC or Pac Bell or whatever you want to call it...Ma Bell Park?) gets the edge over Philly & SD.
