CONSESSION!!!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Mon Rominee, Jun 28, 2005.


  1. I hate spending 35 dollars on 2 sodas, 2 hot dogs, and 2 bags of peanuts just to see Cleveland wipe the floor with my boys. A good experience overall, but between the loss and the indegestion, not worth the money. Shoulda got tix for tonite. I predict they'll win.

    There ya go.

    Mon, I saw some of that game....ugly....


    ....particularly that "home run" where the Sox outfielder (forgot his name) let the ball fall out of his glove and over the fence...

    Ouch.


    ...oh, and I got the cure for concessions, right here.

    Gotta love low A ball! :D

    Man...what a horrible time of year for sports. Basketball is over. No hockey. Football hasn't started yet. I played baseball through my entire childhood, and I still don't get the attraction. I'll be going up to Cleveland to see the Indians in a few weeks, but only because my wife got free tickets at work.

    Pat, if you're referring to watching baseball on the tube, I'm with you, can't do it.

    However, if you are GOING to the game, it's pretty cool.

    I've got a great setup here in Greensboro, they just built a brand-new stadium for the team, great sight lines from everywhere in the building (even concessions! :D ). Oh, and it's right across the street from my house, which is a block from the shop...

    ...and they're playing a 4th of July night game, so I get to sit 4 rows back from home plate, watch a game, then fireworks, and it cost me all of $9!

    :cool:

    That was the one highlight I was able to catch on Sportscenter this morning... I loved it (no offense to BoSox fans)!

    Weren't they once the Greensboro Bats, or is this a new team all-together?

    Yes, they were the Greensboro Bats...I'm not "sold" on the new name ("Grasshoppers" :spit: ), but the stadium and team are great.

    I believe they were also known as the Hornets at one time, and were even featured in "Bull Durham", along with the old War Memorial (WWI "war memorial"! :eek: Circa 1919) Stadium, which is about a 5 minute ride from the new stadium.
