    Pretty Impressive but not surprised.

    Don't know why they bothered doing non-US venues if they were going to do so little research on them or rate them so badly. Stamford Bridge at 6 yet Old Trafford and Anfield can't even make the top 100?? Wembley gets an 8.5 for history despite 70 years including a World Cup final?

    Kyle Field is weak. It really is. There are 90,000 there (allegedly), but it sounds like 60,000 because it's open at one end. And don't even get me started on the homoeroticism of the yell leaders.

    I'm with you all the freakin' way on the yell leaders. One time, an Aggie friend of my husband's said, "Well, you must want your kids to be gay," when I told him I'd prefer my kids go to UT over A & M if they HAD to go to a Texas school .

    I went on to let him in on my opinion of the yell leaders and other Aggie traditions.

    And Kyle Field reminds me of a high school stadium, of sorts. When I went, we walked right in off the street--no big gates or anything like there are at Tiger Stadium. It reminds me of the time, my family walked right into a North Texas game and no one ever bothered to ask us for a ticket (therefore, we never bothered to buy any...)

    Impressive, especially with baseball making the list.

    And who is this Kyle dude? I'm thinking he's an original yell leader guy.

    Kind of ironic as we countdown to LSU/Oregon, that these are the only two colleges to have two venues on the list. OU's football stadium and basketball arena ranked ahead of the Box, but behind Tiger Stadium.

    that basketball arena is a palace... just in a very strange location off campus. veryyyy strange. and while the box is nice, it's NOT nicer than the nationals' stadium. not by a very, very long shot. coors field either, for that matter.

    Maybe...but LSU has a better team! :hihi:

    The Nationals have good fireworks. Unfortunately most miss them because they left early.
