ABSTRACT
The article focuses on several buildings and sports facilities that occupy a place of power in sports. One of the places is Rupp Arena of the University of Kentucky. Rupp--packed with 24,000 screaming fans who seem right on top of the court--is the gold standard. These knowledgeable fans know when to help spark a run or help crush another team's spirit. Another venue is Bronco Stadium of Boise State University. It features a mid-sized conference, plus-sized program-massive home-field advantage. Also important is Fenway Park.
