perhaps Wrigley Field is considered the most unique ballpark in MLB (better than Green Monster and Yankees Stadium) but I am not sure if it is the most legendary sports venue in America??? MSG, Indy Speedway, LA Coliseum, Michigan Stadium, Augusta or Cameron Indoor Stadium are also legendary and wonderful sports venues.
dont know, perhaps there's too much tradition lost with the NY Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers and legendary Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field.
Unfortunately, Dallas, your Mavs went down hard to New Orleans. the other vote can be Memphis also, it's so sad to lose the sonics, it's the first traditional franchise that I will see moving.
One of 2 votes against the move of the Supersonics to to Oklahoma City was Mark Cuban. So he gets two pieces of bad news. He looses this game, and he gets a rival team 2 hours from Dallas.
are the Nets moving to Brooklyn for sure???
Off topic, can somebody tell me a great mlb franchise to root for please??
I rooted for the Mets til Glavine collapse in last game of regular season ended a dramatic downfall.
I like old ballparks, Wrigley and Fenway Park.
(dont like the yanquees and dislike giants and dodgers bc they moved from NY and Brooklyn)
Though I live near Boston, I'm not a Red Sox fan in the normal sense of the word. But I like the way they go about their business. I think they have the right attitude about running a team and playing the game, and I like the mix of players they have. So I guess you can say I'm a fan of this Red Sox team.
As for the teams I'm a fan of, the two you don't like (for what I feel is a strange reason) are the the ones I can say I'm a fan of, the Dogers and Giants. I mean they moved back in the 50's. Why would have a problem with that?
they are the best clubs from the West for sure (add Philadelphia Athletics then Oakland Athletics)
I agree about the Red Sox roster, really strong team and favorites to win World Series again. I like the fact they have a strong rivalry with the Yankees.
are the Cubs popular in America or a laughing stock like the Clippers??? I like Wrigley Field, my fav. ballpark with SF, but all my friends from Chicago are WhiteSox fans.
The Cubs are extremely popular. Even outside of Chicago. They are popular for the same reason as the Atlanta Braves. Before the recent Cable TV advances, back in the '80s and early '90s the Braves were seen on WTBS, and the Cubs were seen on WGN all over the country. So many areas that didn't have a local team took the Cubs or Braves as their favorites. Plus the Cubs have the same Lovable Loser image that the Brooklyn Dodgers used to have. Now that the Red Sox have broken their World Series Jinx, the Cubs are now on the clock as the most frustrated team, having not won a World Series since 1908, or something like that.
Well conchita banana, when your world travels bring you the the City of Broad Shoulders, give me a shout. I live right near Wrigley (tough ticket, though lol) Not a Cub fan at all, but there's nothing like Wrigley. My friend back home is a Giants season ticket holder and he said Wrigley makes everything else look silly (I don't know if he's been to Fenway
Dmast, I hope to get to Fenway someday.
conchita, nice list. I've been to many: Wrigley, MSG, Indy, Churhill Downs, Michigan Stadium, Superdome, Rose Bowl, "old" Notre Dame Stadium, Mile High Stadium, Cow Palace... and many more.
I even played a football game at Kesar Stadium in San Francisco.
