I actually attended my first games earlier in the year in Dania. I really enjoyed it - but damn if the stadium wasn't the most depressing place I've ever been to.

There used to be a few "Frontons" in of them up 95 from NYC.  The attraction, I believe, was the gambling associated with the sport (and later OTB at the same sites).  The opening of the Indian casinos in the late 80s pretty much sealed their fate.

Anything involving gambling in the northeast eventually becomes a boondoggle.
