As you may have seen, John Gruber over on Daring Fireball referred to Yankee Stadium as “the most celebrated sporting venue in the world”. Immediately, I thought this was not the case and decided to correct him, informing him the most celebrated sporting venue in the world was in fact … oh, um what is it again?
A quick twitting got a few suggestions, like Madison Sq Gardens from @cimota and Old Trafford from @lbutlr, whereas Colin in my office put forward Brands Hatch and a few other footbally ones while I came up with The Colloseum, oddly enough, and the Indianapolis Raceway.
Needless to say, outside the US, there aren’t many, apart from maybe a few Japanese, that would choose Yankee Stadium.
Am I wrong? What are your suggestions for the most celebrated sporting venue in the world? Comments below, please.
