Berliner Olympiastadion

I might be a bit biased, but I m pretty sure many would agree that the Berliner Olympiastadion belongs to the greatest stadiums in the world.

That is pretty sweet. The renos (2002) were done very well, and respected a lot of the original design.

To be fair I think the pool picture you saw is in one of the training rooms. ( for physical therapy of players). The moving dolphin thing is stupid though.

no, no. It was a pool from where fans could watch the game!

...and again, what does that have to do with anything? Old Comiskey had a history, as did Ebbets Field, the Polo Ground, Old Yankee Stadium, etc....
They're all gone now...and we have our memories....move on.

Someone tagged this photo incorrectly.

That "A" logo belongs to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and one of the more (in)famous features of Bank One Ballpark/Chase Field is the swimming pool in right field.

Been to 2 games at Marlins Park.....such a huge improvement! It is really a great place to watch a ball game!
One side note: they are keeping the eft field wall closed even if the roof is open due to the winds making it almost impossible to hit home runs...

finally made it to a game myself. Really is pretty nice. I made a lot of excuses for the old ballpark, but the new one just blows it out of the water. It's the real baseball experience right here in Miami.

Comparing it to the other new ballparks I've been in, a nudge better than San Diego, not as nice as Philly.

I really like the curved lines of the Edmonton arena...It is usually pretty tough to do anything very unusual with hockey arenas, but they have managed nicely...
