      • Considering the dearth of spectators, I'm going to have to guess that it is HS, rather than a collegiate one!

        • By the logos, it looks like the California state playoffs.

            But then again, there's the oft-quoted story about Bears fullback Bronko Nagurski who once smashed full speed into the brick outfield wall at Wrigley after scoring a touchdown. "That last guy really gave me a good lick," Nagurski supposedly told coach George Halas after he trotted back to the sideline.
            Is that a legal sized end zone?

            • Getting back to Miller Park, I find it amazing that I have never heard of any other sporting event being played at stadium. Have they ever though of a basketball game? Hockey? Soccer?

                Of all the new ballparks, Miller Park, you would think, would be the PRIME venue for other sports. A retractable roof, state of the art, and no other major baseball or football venue ANYWHERE nearby.

                Yet the geniuses who built it didn't think to make it big enough to accomodate a football grid. Amazing.

                    Wow. That's... odd.

                    (Do we need a seperate "Parks in bowling configuration" thread?)

                    Here are some pictures I dug up from around the web. Can anybody find others?

                    • Miller Park

                      For the money the taxpayers payed for Miller Park, wouldn't it have been wise to accomidate the Packers, considering that they still have a 3 game Milwaukee package for County Stadium ticket holders? And maybe a solution for Miller Park would be to buy a grass lighting system like in European soccer.

                        Given today's NFL economy, that's a non-starter. The Packers would get no money from those games for luxury box rental and have to pay the costs for transportation to Milwaukee. By the last years they played in County Stadium, they were losing thousands over what they would have received playing in Green Bay when you figure in transportation, luxury box revenues, and additional seatong (Lambeau now is over 70,000; Miller is about 46,000). Even if the Packers wanted to do it, they would probably have to pay for locker room renovations and so on. And I've heard very few Milwaukee fans complain about driving to Green Bay; they'd rather see the games in Lambeau that in a place not suited for football at all.

                          Was the field always tucked towards the RF side of the playing surface?

                          It would appear that the surface was wide enough to run the gridiron straight from home plate to CF - why wouldn't they center the field on surface?

                            Driving to Green Bay from Milwaukee must be no different than Jets fans driving from Suffolk County here in New York. Suffolk county I know is less than 100 miles from Giants Stadium, but when you figure Manhattan and Sunday night Catskill/Pocono traffic, you are probably looking at a long ride home from Giants Stadium that is a comparable time distance as Lambeau to Milwaukee. Also woundn't the taxpayers want some football games either college or pro for all of the money they gave Bud Selig.

                              Agreed. It takes me an hour 20 to get to Milwaukee and I'm on the north border of Chicago. It's taken me that long to get to a Sox game during rush hour. You can really get around in Wisconsin though. GB to MIL could be accomplished in under 2 hours, it's about 120 miles. 100 miles in the NY area, you might as well fly.
                              Go go White Sox

                                Yes, and Green Bay/Brown County taxpapers have complained that the Packers' promises about allowing more events in Lambeau have been ignored; they've had snowmobile races a couple of times, and a Badger hockey game, but nothing after spring. Can't touch that sacred turf. (They let the Green Bay Marathon run in the stadium, but only on the concrete path around the field)
