I thought that the Rangers ballpark was ok, it didn't feel as special as Dodger stadium, however I thought it was a nice enough ballpark. I was surprised at just how small it was compared to how it looks on TV. The best part about the stadium? When I went I spent roughly $10 on two tickets. With parking I think I took that up to $20-25. Two tickets to a ballgame (though I'll admit my seats were less then special) for about the same price as going to the movies is a good deal in my opinion. I was playing with the idea of heading out to the Dallas area (about a 6 hour drive for me) when the Dodgers were playing out there back in June, just never really worked out.
The one great thing about Cowboys Stadium is that video board. Now their fans get to watch 'em suck in an ever bigger way.
As for the Rangers ballpark, that picture from your seat was awesome. I gotta say that view really won me over on this place. The outside may look bland, and I've never really paid too much attention to this park, but seeing that view made me REALLY like the look of this place now.
The thing I like the most is the way it appears huge, but sorta compact too. The food and beer choices may have been weak, but this park still just jumped up a few notches in my book.....and I'm still shocked by that.

I don't really see much of anything on the new Cowboy stadium as being compact to be honest. Last time I saw it was back in May of this year, so maybe some of the landscaping has helped make it seem a little bit more compact.
^Sorry about that, I read that wrong and confused myself. I was just having such a hard time trying to imagine the new Cowboy Stadium as being compact.
As for the Rangers stadium, it really is fairly small. However like I said I like the ballpark, I thought it was a nice place to see a game. The little league fields around the stadium are also a very nice touch.
So after having season tickets since the Galen Center opened, I figured I would finally do a photo TR of the place and revive this thread. For those of you who didn't realize USC had a basketball team, they finally got an on-campus arena to call their own in 2006. Prior to that they played in the AWFUL L.A. Memorial Sports Arena, which I am still waiting to be turned into a parking lot. My dad and I refused to get season tickets prior to the Galen Center opening because of how much we hated that place.
Anyways...onward to the photos.
Right next door to Galen is "The Lab"...best place for a pre-game snack and beer!
The arena level concourse.
The concourse features replicas of all of USC's NCAA titles (The real ones are on display @ Heritage Hall)...
A timeline of USC's national titles...
...And all the times USC athletes have been featured on the cover of SI.
Going up to the seating level, you are greeted with this...
Peeve: the seating level concourses look so boring and unfinished...which they would match it to the arena concourse!
View from those windows at the end of the arena. Too bad it has to be covered up for TV broadcasts.
The view from the top of our section. We're in row 6. There's not a bad seat in the house.
The suite level hallway. Suites have only been completed on one side of the arena. I have to find my pictures of the suite interior and unfinished suites on the other side.
Hasn't the LED ribbon around Suite Level C been at Staple Center from day one? I could have sworn it was there last year and years prior. They still need to wrap Suite Level B and 300 level in LED ribbon.
