No, the Coliseum is in Los Angeles. I believe the Rams and Raiders both played there. I know the Dodgers played baseball there pre Dodger Stadium. The '32 and '84 Olympics were both held there.

Think I have been to three of these. Or near anyway. Kind of hard to be actually at Niagara Falls unless you have a death wish and like barrels. :joke:
