Last night was my dad's 1st trip to UD Arena in eons and he and I discussed it as a great place to watch a game. And it is great, so long as you're not in the 400 level, aka Vandalia.

Anyway, he and I started talking about places where we'd been to games (usually together) and I know we also did this here during football season. So here goes:

UD, Miami, UC (old and new), Xavier (old and new), Wright State, Ohio State (old and new), UK, Freedom Hall (but not for a UofL game), Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Memphis (old, middle and new), Murray St, WKU, EKU, Morehead, NKU (old and new), Austin Peay, Tennessee State, Belmont (new), Lipsconmb, Ga Tech, BGSU (old), Akron, Butler, Indiana, Illinois, Northwestern, Ball State, Penn (the Palestra). I think that's it. I've been inside Cameron Indoor and the Deandome, but not for games. Also been to Midnight Madness at the old place where Maryland used to play.

NCAA venues: McKale Center in Tucson, Hoosier Dome, the arena in Tampa whatever it's called, Nashville Arena, UD, MCI Center (DC), the Meadowlands.

NBA venues: Indianapolis (new and old), Memphis (new), Cleveland (new), Phoenix.

Best: Butler. If you like basketball at all, you must go there once in your life. You'll like basketball more after you go there. If you don't like basketball at all, go anyway, just to see the that beautiful building.

Worst: Miami. Maybe this is a "familiarity breeds contempt" situation as I've been going to games there as long as I can remember, but the place sucks.
