“A dump” without any “panache” full of “apathetic” fans who “won’t give two shakes of a rat’s tail” if the team “moves to Los Angeles” is how Qualcomm was described to me by a San Diego resident who probably “reviews for Zagat’s.” But evidently it’s easy to get to and to leave, which makes it leaps and bounds better than the next stadium on our list.
