Oh yes, winning the World Series twice in three years (with almost completely different lineups each time) doesn't count, does it?

No it doesn't.

The 49ers and the Giants are front companies for Satan.

It's a widely believed fact!

PS: You'll love AT&T Park. Perfect for baseball (except for the garish Coke bottle).

This list is obviously bollocks since Melbourne isn't on it.

Re: Lonely Planet - Top 10 Cities

Now I feel extremely guilty because I live within an hour of SF and have seen barely any of the city. I just haven't felt motivated to, and have really only gone in for an event or two. If it were a short train ride I might do it more, or if I had someone who was interested in exploring the city with me. As it is I've been more interested in exploring the non-city areas around the Bay Area.

Yeah, I am very excited about going there. AT&T Park and Dodger Stadium are the ones I'm most looking forward to on this tour.

I think Montreal is highly over rated. My preference would be Vancouver.

Vancouver made the list in 2010.

Doesit make you feel worse to learn that in previous years both Darwin and Newcastle have made the list?

I guess it's called the "lonely" planet for a reason!

Are you doing a ballpark tour? I think I heard something last year about a group of friends that did a summer tour of all the ballparks. Sounded like a lot of fun (if a bit expensive).

Growing up in Chicago (and a Cubs fan) I've been to Wrigley Field more times than I can remember. Been to both old and new Comiskey Park as well.

Last year, while in Baltimore for a concert fest I went to two games at Camden Yards. A great ballpark for sure and I had a lot of fun. Surprisingly its the only other professional park I've been to outside of Chicago (Driven outside of Kaufman and Busch, but never been inside them). I'm hoping if I get stationed in D.C. like I want to next year I'll get to see the Cubs play the Nats in their stadium and probably catch some more Os games at Camden Yards.

Have fun!

The closest I came to any of the other cities on the list was a meeting at the airport in Amsterdam, en route elsewhere.
LOL me too

Yep. I'm going on Sports Travel & Tours. The tour itself goes to Phoenix (AZ Diamondbacks), Anaheim (Angels), L.A. (Dodgers), Oakland (Athletics) and SF (Giants).

I'm tacking on a few ballparks on my own as well: Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, Pittsburgh Pirates.

The reason I'm using the tour for most of those CA ballparks is that some of them, such as Dodger Stadium, have no mass transit access, so I would have to drive in order to get there - and I refuse to waste my vacation time driving. Plus, I know for a fact I'd get lost if I tried to drive in California.
