So during Opening Day, I had the question posed to me, which MLB stadium was my favorite?
I honestly could not answer. None of them I liked THAT much more than others. I mean Fenway and Wrigley are nice, but not very fan friendly in the sense that its impossible to get tickets to, and they are 50 bucks each if you do find some available. Not to mention the fact that the Red Sox and Cubs play there. That should discount them automatically.
So yesterday, baking in the Colorado sun, I decided Coors Field is my favorite. For real. Just kind of happens that I live in the same town. Here are a few reasons why:
- They let you bring anything, except alcohol and glass bottles, in with you. (So bring your own sodas!)
-AFFORDABLE tickets (I've paid a combined $8 for two games)
-Beautiful Mountain Views from almost anywhere in the stadium
-Eco-Friendly Solar Panels in outfield
-Upon construction, dinosaur fossils were found beneath the stadium. (therefore the mascot is a triceratops)
-Downtown location, opposed to middle of nowhere locations of Kaufmann stadium, Shea...well, we'll stop there, there are too many.
-Doesn't the name "Coors Field" have a nice ring to it? I mean its no "Great American Ballpark" but its a whole lot better than most corporately sponsored stadiums.
-Relief pitchers warm up in the forest. (For real, I couldn't find a picture, but theres a lot of rock and trees out there, so many you can't see the catcher as they warm up.)
-Friendly ushers. Twice in a row I was allowed to sit in $30 seats with a $4 ticket.
-I've yet to see a beach ball at the stadium. Hate those things.
- One of the best scorecards in the business. Trust me.
-Even during the summer, be sure to bring a light jacket if you are attending a night game.
Ok thats it. I'm sure I could think of more, but I've got Mono. But I'm still going camping this weekend.
