    From legendary fields like Wrigley or Fenway to the modern,
    how many sports venues have you visited, and which was the greatest or most memorable experience?

    Here is my list..

    Browns Stadium....half dozen times
    Texas Stadium....5 or 6 times
    Three Rivers back in the Day
    Quicken Loans Arena..Cavs
    The Jake/Progressive Field..Tribe
    Nationwide Arena..AFL...Columbus Destroyers
    Wrigley FieldOhio Stadium...Buckeyes

    Most memorable for me is Wrigley..with all the history and ivy.

    Biggest regret is gonna be never seeing Yankee stadium.

    All in all great stadium but the seats are bleachers... lack of ball room.

    ARIZONA CARDINALS
    Good seats, good views but no parking and absolutely zero audio off the field.

    Experience like non other. Instead of tailgating, you party up on Burbon Street. Then you get what's called a "walker" (a drink for the walk to the stadium) and head on over.
    Mixed drink vendors in the street. Be sure to slam some hurricanes!!! The stadium is pretty sweet too.

    BOLTS4LIFE~ I remember games at the old Muny stadium and I agree it's probably the worse stadium ever. It wasn't unusual to get a seat in front of a pole, water leaking.

    It was bad but the new one looks great on TV.
