    How many sporting venues you have visited

    Not counting yoou/I have played sport at, but when you have gone to watch a sports match.

    For me it is:

    The MCG
    Olympic Park - Melbourne
    The 'Gabba
    ANZ Stadium (Brisbane)
    Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane)
    Carrara Stadium - Gold Coast (where Queensland played England in a tour match some 14 odd years ago - the one where David Gower got fined for flying over the ground in a Tiger Moth)
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Please don't mention the name Verwoed. He was an a-hole . I think the name was changed to Centurion, officially or unofficially, I'm not sure
