DBD 9/7/2012 - Football stadiums! (56k/DSL warning!)

Over the past few years of my fandom, I've had a chance to visit all the original Pac-8 stadiums plus a few others. I'm using this DBD as a place to dump some of the photos from each of the stadiums, offering a look at them for those who have never been there.

Discussion Questions:

1) What stadiums, aside from Memorial, have you visited?

2) Which is your favorite? Which is your least favorite?

3) What stadium would you like to visit that you haven't already?

4) Isn't new Memorial sexy?

Minnesota (TCF Bank Stadium):

It's really not that impressive. Yet another stadium. That's all. Nice video board though.

Oregon (Autzen Stadium)

Man this place can get loud

Oregon State (Reser Stadium)

It's a small but intimate stadium. I don't know why but I find it charming. And the all the orange is kinda nice.

Washington (Husky Stadium)

The first picture is of Lake Washington. The stadium sits right next to it. I bet To$h's boat is there now.

Washington State (Martin Stadium)

By far the smallest in the Pac, and the one that most closely resembles a high school field. That said, I kinda like Pullman. And Ferdinand's (the ice cream shop on campus) is to die for. At least they have a nice video board.

USC (Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum)

By far the most epic (especially when the Olympic torch is lit in the 4th quarter), but also the shittiest visitor section seats ever.

UCLA (Rose Bowl)

This never felt all that "historic" to me. But it might have something to do with the fact that a Dorrell lead UCLA team beat us.

When they say this is a tin box with no soul, they mean it. Of course I always love hearing the Cal visiting section louder than the home fans. Too bad that the two years I've been there (2007 and 2011) have been shitty defeats. I will, however, always enjoy this pic:

Candlestick Park

I've been here for Niners games but I don't have any pics. Just a bunch from our game last year. I don't like it. I can't wait for the new one in Santa Clara.

AT&T Park (Emerald Bowl)

Most of us have probably been here so I won't post pictures from last year. Instead here's two from the Emerald Bowl as seen from the student section

Holiday Bowl (Qualcomm Stadium)

I really enjoyed my trip to San Diego. I conveniently forget the game of course.

And of course...

California (Memorial Stadium)

Man our new stadium is awesome!
