Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "the true test of quality game day preparations are from those fields that consistently provide excellent playability and aesthetics when the cameras are nowhere to be found and the crowds are small." Lists cultural practices and sport-specific practices to be performed in preparation for a game day. Concludes that "successful [game day] preparations involve a field manager willing ot take charge in identifying the various tasks to perform, determining the best way to accomplish those tasks and determining the order in which the tasks are done."
