    [QUOTE=Bonhomme Richard;4269124]It would be cool of they played these games in a soccer stadium. Soccer-specific stadiums are becoming commonplace now, and the seating is set up in a way that would provide for better sight lines -- less people closer to the action. If they put the rink in the middle of the pitch they could even put temporary seating around the rink. There's a beautiful new soccer stadium right by Philly too for their MLS team.[/QUOTE]

    Exactly. The Red Bull Arena in Harrison wouldn't be a bad choice.

    Look at these sight lines...

    This is the one that really made an impression on me, thought it was a great atmosphere. Fenway was cool too.

    [QUOTE=RazorJet;4269104]That dude is funny. Holy bejesus I bout peed.

    Anyway, anyone taking their kid to Philly to root for the visiting team, be warned. Your child needs to be prepared for words of curse and flying debris. All of which can be practiced for in the backyard, but do it when the neighbors aren't home. They see your boy run for the shed while you throw food at him while swearing and dhs will be knockin' down the door.

    HAHAHA.

    This one made me laugh.

    Pittsburgh obviously was the worst.

    Boston maybe the best.

    The Winter Classic at "The Bank" will be just as good as Femway, if not better. I would loved to have seen this with the Broad Street Bullies, and the Blueshirts. Blood bath on the pond.
