haha annnnddddddd your true colors show. Do you cry yourself to sleep often?

Phillips Arena



Turner Field



Georgia Dome




Also just curious.In the county of Gwinnett,they have a new triple A Braves minor league stadium.It is really a first class minor league facility.Any other cities have minor league facilities of like quality?
That basketball arena is AWESOME. Phipps Arena always looked amazing to me.

It requires physical endurance, and mental endurance, which is more than playing 1 hour of football, or 48 minutes of basketball.

And although it doesn't require the physicality it might for an actual basketball or football game, it still is a lot longer. Additionally, there is more danger associated with racing, where one is risking their lives every time, a lot more so than other sports.
Again, these things are not ATHLETIC. Endurance, stressful conditions and bravery to face danger are not athleticism.

Yea that stadium is a tough one to beat. It's completely over-the-top in every way, and the outrageous video board hangs a bit low...but it may be one of the only reasons I would ever want to go to Dallas.

So if the Red River Shootout is ever there, or if the Pats go to Dallas soon...I may have to make the trip.

Hey, at least Tampa doesn't have to have a POLICE PRECINCT inside the Stadium to handle all the arrested whack-jobs like Philadelphia does.

Talk about a bragging right.

What's really cool is that it's built directly on top of a subway station.

While there are some who take things to extremes, as a sports fan i will take the passion in Philly over any other city, period.

This feature is not unique to Phipps Arena in Atlanta. Penn Station and Madison Square Garden offer this feature too.

My top stadiums based on the four major sports....

NFL: Dallas Cowboys - Cowboys Stadium
NBA: NY Knicks - Madison Square Garden
NHL: NY Rangers - Madison Square Garden
MLB: NY Yankees - Yankee Stadium & Boston Red Sox - Fenway
