    I bring water, samwitches, all kinds of stuff to shea. They don't expect everyone to buy an 8 dollar hotdog etc.

    Since most venues are constructed with public financing, how about attaching a requirement to the financing package that competition be permitted among various concessionaires within the venue?

They also do the same thing with hot dogs. They are to die for and since the brat or dog are wrapped in the baked pretzel dough, they stay warmer longer.

    One thing though, if you are ever in St. Louis and go to a game, DON'T BUY THE ONES THEY SERVE AT THE BALLGAME. A couple of years ago the Cardinals came across Gus' invention and were in talks to sell tham at Busch. Instead they said no thanks and then took the idea and tried to make it their own. But at the stadium they are much smaller, aren't completely wrapped in the dough and are twice as expensive. So if you are ever in STL and want one to take to the game, or just want one, go to Gus'. It's right across highway 55 from the brewery on Arsenal.

    P.S.- Hungry now?
    Yes!!!! They always do stuff like that at ballparks, concerts ect. They always seem to have the horrible ripoff version of good food that is always overpriced. God, I must have one! I don't see myself anywhere near St.Louis anytime soon though. That sounds wicked good, like a giant really good pig in a blanket!

    Shea can be a problem because there's nothing around the stadium so you either have to tailgate or buy beer inside. I for one enjoy beer at the ballpark, but having full season tix and paying $8 for (good) beers, I'd go bankrupt by the All Star break if I didn't keep it to 2 or so a game.

    Most of the heavy beer drinkers seem to be the younger guys (girls too) that don't go that often, but drinking is part of their typical social environment (college etc) so it naturally carries over to the ballpark, for better or for worse. What I don't get is most of them are conditioned by TV or whatever into buying Bud or Bud Lights and need about 6 or 8 to get their buzz, instead of buying maybe 3 Heinekens or Becks, which would achieve the same effect, with less cost and infinitely more enjoyment!

    Sometimes it's interesting to watch the "drinkers" around us get increasingly louder and a little more confrontational as the game goes on, usually culminating in the "fight" inning - otherwise known as the 7th. Beer sales are stopped after the top of the 7th, so that's the "peak" of beer consumption, and usually is good for a slight scuffle or two, sometimes worse depending on the opponent. That's probably why I'm a big extra-inning fan - no more beer sales, the partiers go back to the parking lot for brewskis and only the die-hards are left, to simply watch the game.

I watch people bring in bags of chips and 2 liter bottles of soda. In the bleachers where i have season tickets you see many of the sT holders bringing in some things. Mostly I see people bring in a bag of chips and soda, sometimes sandwiches . Most of those people seem to buy more beer at the game.

    I just bought a case of beer and a 22lb bag of ice for tonight's backyard bonfire....$19.44.

    I don't ever drink at sporting events, I'm there to watch the game. The worst for me is the bleachers at Cleveland Browns Stadium. The Dawg Pound at the old place was ridiculous, but usually funny. The new bleachers are just vile and dangerous, made even worse so if you wear the other team's colors (or Ravens/Steelers stuff no matter who the opponent may be that day).

    Plus, there's a little issue called driving home. I think I'll pass on a DUI at a quarter per sip....I think I'll just pass on a DUI period.

    The should hand out hats with red lights on the top so you don't get struck by an aircraft. 20,000 people having to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere after a game so that 3000 people can mingle at the club.
    I believe that's what we currently do at Shea that's smack dab next to a major airport.

    lol, I couldn't agree more... I plan to sit down in front of my TV tonight... already frusterated and expecting the Cubs to lose (again) while doing just that... then pack and get ready to do the same only at Busch Stadium tomorrow... lol

    It's amazing how when the Tigers are doing well, the Cubs look like a train wreck and a week and a half ago I was worried the Tigers season was going to be over already when the Cubs were tearin' it up.
