Random Red Bull Arena Snow Day Stadium P0rn



Since we're still thigh-deep in "Snowpacalypse 2010" here in the Northeast, I changed up my routine this a.m. and took the overground train (read: stagecoach) in to work and rolled right past a snow-covered Red Bull Arena. The funny thing was is there was a couple of German-speaking tourists sitting directly in front of me looking at the arena and the only thing I understood them say was blah blah blah "Allianz Arena" blah blah blah.

Seriously, they said that. Now I don't know if they were saying it looks like Allianz Arena or if they were reminiscing about how they met in the toilets of Allianz Arena. I just find it interesting/pleasing that an MLS ground is even in the same conversation as a building of that stature.

it would be ironic if they thought red bull arena was new giants stadium, which is based of Allianz Arena.

There have been situations where people think it is the new Giants Stadium. Going to Yankee games this year, I saw people stare in wonder at the stadium wondering what it was.

They really should get a billboard in view of the train. Seems like I've heard a million stories of people riding the train and every single rider gawks at the stadium wondering what it is.

It is in such a beautiful area. LMFAO! Why not just rebrand the franchise Toxic Avengers FC? Seriously, building that stadium in that locale is like placing a diamond in a pile of cowshit.

Don't be so ignorant. Yes, it's true that the arena is not in the greatest area but it is a great location without any doubt, very accessible, close to a diverse immigrant population, etc. Hopefully, this will provide a good source of income for Harrison along with the other planned developments. I did see a large banner in the video on the side of a building near the arena, but RBNY needs to keep getting the word out.

LOL/LMAO. Toxic Avengers FC? You must make 'em roll down at the hardware store!! Good stuff, very creative!

Seriously, tho, stop the hating. You must have woke up on the wrong side of your sister's bed again. :(
