Two of my favorite are the Sprint Center in Kansas City and the BOK Center in Tulsa.

Well, I noticed the poll covers mostly "arenas", and not stadiums, etc..., but if it covered all sports facilities I'd have more to choose from. I'd pick some of these....

1. The new Cowboys facility in Arlington...deffinately the new "state of the art" facility.

2. The Superdome in New Orleans, lots of history, and still remarkable.

3. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena

4. Wrigley Feld

5. Neyland Stadium in Knoxville

6. The "Big House" Michigan

7. Mile High Stadium Denver

8. Kyle Field College Station

9. Three Rivers Pittsburg

10. Reliant Stadium Houston

I like the Toyota center. Why would you list small Omaha, Nebraska? So many other nice arenas in much larger cities.

I don't know about the size, but the baseball park in Omaha is a classic! It just has the baseball feel....

Lol...your right about the Astrodome. I've been to many awesome events there. I guess I left it out since it's rarely used anymore, but personally I'd put it above Reliant for sure.

Neyland is the most rickety stadium I have ever had the horror to visit. It's very uncomfortable...the seats are basically a slab of wood and people are packed in very intimately. I couldn't wait to get out of there.

How about arenas like the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill, Rupp Arena in Lexington, Cameron Indoor at Duke, Pauley Pavilion at UCLA, Allen Fieldhouse at Kansas, the brand-new John Paul Jones Arena at UVA...

It probably isn't a good idea to try and compare different types of arenas - college basketball arenas, NBA arenas, NFL stadiums, MLB stadiums, NHL arenas, etc. Plus, an ancient venue like Wrigley Field, while rich in history and truly legendary, would not compare well to a brand arena with all of the comforts and conveniences available.
