Stadium cosmetics are also in sports. Just an excuse to post pictures of odd stadium set ups, or stadium qwerks that you like. Can be about football, hockey, baseball, basketball, etc

Yankee Stadium hosting the Pinstripe Bowl. Almost none of the seats face midfield

You know, I've been to a ton of games at the Oakland Coliseum for both football and baseball, and I always thought it got a fairly unwarranted bad rap (at least from a fan's perspective). Its in a downright AWFUL area, and it's definitely not pretty, but it's really not as bad as some I've seen. Hell, Candlestick Park is WAY more of a dump.

Speaking of Candlestick, they had the fans do what they called a "card trick" in between the first and second quarters of last Monday's game. I wasn't sure exactly how it was gonna go, but I gotta say, it turned out pretty damn cool. Here's the view from my seat.

The panorama on my second picture didn't turn out so well, but you get the gist.

Yeah most people thought that was kinda lame, but considering they're moving into Levi's Stadium, I'll let that one slide.

AT&T Park home of the San Francisco Giants hosting the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. To me this is unique due to the fact that both teams are on the same sideline during the game.

wtf? that should never happen, it makes it harder to make substitutions depending on which side of the field they are playing on.

Hey! Miami-Cal! I was at that game. It's definitely one of the coolest setups I've ever seen for a football game. AT&T Park is absolutely beautiful too.

That was one helluva game too. It was downright PACKED full of Cal fans (you can almost see the Cal campus from AT&T), and it was quite the shoot out. Jhavid Best ran all over the Miami D and claimed MVP honors.

Actually... Where'd you find that pic? That's right about where I was sitting. I kind of wonder if that was one of my pictures :P

It's great that they're moving the game to Levi's Stadium next year, but it's a real shame they'll be losing a bowl game in such a unique venue. Odd sideline quirks notwithstanding.

Also, the Tampa Bay Lightning had a couple of interesting homes before their current digs in an actual hockey arena :lol:

Their first year was at the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds:

Then they moved into the Florida Suncoast Dome a.k.a. "The Thunderdome" a.k.a. Tropicana Field:

The league I playing in is currently doing the same thing (two teams on one sideline). It's very irritating and the reason we have been given is that the games need to be filmed from the grandstand on the other side of the AFL oval we play on. The reason we are now playing on the far (non grandstand side) is because the owners are leasing it for am AFL trial game in February and we apparently hack the field up too much.

But back on topic is really irritating, at some points in the game or Coach is having to substitute a reviver every pay to get the call out without the QB running back and forth so much
