I’d have to say for the NFL (even though standing on the sidelines during a January game is BRUTAL!!), Green Bay is one of my top choices. Amazing, loyal fans who live and die by the success of their Packers. Plus, so much history has taken place on the “frozen tundra of Lambeau Field”, it’s tough not to feel nostalgic when you’re there.
Final Four city? San Antonio. Cool, fun town. Great atmosphere. Everything’s centrally located. Good food!
Ballpark? Wrigley. I love so much of the history of the place… how, back in the day (before high-rises) they would raise the “W” or “L” flag so all the folks around town knew if the Cubs won or lost. I love how it’s right in the middle of the neighborhood. How, if you sit out on your porch, you can hear the fans go crazy when someone hits a homer, almost as if you’re in the stands. Really neat place to watch a game.
A couple of regrets: never got to see the Celtics play at the Boston Garden or the Bulls at Chicago Stadium.
