No matter which is the case, the discussion is not worth any more of my time. A Yankee fan that like the Bob over Yankee Stadium...sure whatever.

Thanks for the discussion.

Great article, great series ;-D

I've never been to Yankee Stadium, but I like that you were honest instead of ranking it #1 just because it's your home stadium. Just because you're a fan of the team doesn't mean you have to enjoy where they play. Sullivan Stadium - where the Pats played before Gillette was built - was the worst experience of my live sporting event life.

Thanks. I really appreciate that you understand where I'm coming from with that one. Glad you liked the series and thanks for reading it. ;-D

I agree. I see no reason to give extra weight to a stadium simply because your favorite team plays there.

I'm a HUGE Ranger fan, but even I can admit I HATE the fact they changed the name to "Ameriquest Field" :-P ! Nothing against Ameriquest, but The Ballpark in Arlington was an awesome name! If I were ranking, they lose points right there for that. I understand why they sold the naming rights, and really don't blast them for that, but as a fan who goes to games there, that doesn't mean I overlook something like that when giving the park an overall score. Liking your team has nothing to do with ranking the ballpark in which they play. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Am I a closet Red Sox hater because they're my favorite team and I want Fenway to be torn down? O:-)

Ok, I don't really want it torn down, but I wish the Sox would build a new stadium and then they can keep Fenway up as a museum or whatever.

Anyways, about the rankings...nice job. ;-D All the stadiums that I've been to and liked were towards the top, and all the ones I didn't like were at the bottom, so I definitely agree with and appreciate it.

You have the best connections of all time. ;-D
"I stayed with person X organized by person A" etc etc etc.
Wow.
What a magic trip. (Although it must have been tough doing some of it by yourself).
If you want to go on another one just give me a call ;-D
