      And, of course, Wrigley got a 10 for atmosphere....

        The neighborhood sux cock.
        You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

              I dunno - the new Westin is kinda nice.

                      I'd complain about the ranking for Kaufmann Stadium, but you do have to watch the Royals there. That alone dropped the stadium 10 positions.

                        It is a beautiful stadium, though.

                          How are SBC and Dodger Stadium that low? Everybody seems to enjoy them. I guess they get screwed on accessibility and crap like that.

                            I can vouch for Miller Park. We were there last Friday night for the Brewers/ Braves and it is a fantastic ballpark. The parking is all surface lot and the fans are there at least 2 hours before game time with thousands, and I do mean thousands of BBQ pits all cooking brats!!!!!!!! Several people offered us food as we walked around the lot starting at 5:00. We had a couple brats and one lady even forced us to try her veggie pizza she had made on a weber kettle. The brats were fantastic inside and outside the stadium. We even found AB products at Miller Park in a bar inside the stadium called Fridays. All of that and a sausage race after the 6th inning, too! I think that's the only thing Bud hasn't fucked up yet!
