I survived all you can eat seats at the ballpark. I definitely got my moneys worth, but I also didn't leave feeling like I was going to die (of course, that may say more about me than it does any sense of moderation..)
The seats (the only upper deck seats not tarped off by the almost minor league at this point A's) were nice enough, and it was a gorgeous day for baseball. The usher told us to sit where ever we wanted, so we grabbed great seats behind home plate.
There was one concession stand that featured 7 items, all of which were free: hotlinks, hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, sodas and ice cream. There was also beer, but mercifully for all of us, it was not free. The hot links were quite good, but the regular hot dogs didn't look great. The nachos were gross (although, some people like the fake cheese, I guess..) The popcorn was surprisingly good and you can't really mess up an ice cream sandwich, can you?
So, the final tally was a minor sunburn, 2 hot links, 4 sodas, 1 bag of popcorn and 3 ice cream sandwiches. It was fun, and if a real team had been playing, it would have been even better. Oh, and if that guy behind me hadn't screamed everytime the opposing pitcher threw a pitch. Did he think he was going to throw off the batter?
