I can't seem to get over a Giant's fan constantly misspelling Ginat's?

Anyway, many of the "new" stadiums have restaurants these days, Anaheim has one right behind home plate. And they all serve many diffenent types of foods, with a few exceptions. In Milwaukee, I am pretty sure Bud only lets them sell 3 types of Hot Dog's and one type of beer. In Philly, I am told that there is crack in the water ..

Favorites ..
1) Pac Bell .. Only because of the openings in right that allow you to check out the game for free .. If only for a few minutes.
2) The Bob .. I mean come on, there is a fricking swimming pool out there .
3) Minute-Maid .. Just love that hill that Biggio always stumbles on .
4) Edison .. ever wanted to race Erstad to first .. you can here ..
5) Wrigley .. I am surpised it took "Us Americans" so many years to put bleachers on the roof .. I think you can get them at Sears now ..

Least Favorite
1) Montreal
2) Dome #2
3) Dome #3
4) Dome #4
5) Chavez Ravine .. and anything that steps foot into it wearing blue 81 times a year ..

I have always liked Camden Yards, it started a trend with alot of the new parks being built today and the food there is awesome.

The Twins won it all in 87 and 91 in the Homer Dome (Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome).

They generally did it with defense, 3 quality starters and a solid bullpen.

I'm going to limit these to the ones I've actually been to:

Top 5:
1. PNC Park (best of the New stadiums)
1. Wrigley (Best of the Old Stadiums)
3. Fenway Park (I'll take History over Restaurants any day)
4. Yankee Stadium (See Above)
5. Comerica Park (great seats are always available, loses points for being in a slum)

Bottom 5:
1. Tropica Field (the place looks way too artificial)
2. Olympic Stadium (Seats are crappy and indoors)
3. Veterans Stadium
4. Shea Stadium
5. Skydome

Veterans Stadium is the greatest stadium of all time. Cinder blocks, 3 food items (total), punches in the face, and the residue of 75% losing seasons.

Bring on the new park.
