Take me out to the ballgame, take me out to get a loan....
Okay, so I know times change and others have complained before.
But last night I went to a Cleveland Indians game for the first time in probably 6 years. I wasn't looking forward to it due to the people we were going with, but luckily it turned out to be a better time than expected.
I know things are normally a little pricey when you go to a game, but when I opted to have a traditional beer and hot dog I about fell over when it was ten bucks for the combo.
First vendor walks up the aisle with beer, sporting a "Bud Light 3.50" pin. I yell for a beer, he pours and passes, then asks for 7 freakin bucks....I told him he needs a new pin, since the one he was wearing was apparently from 1975. Nonetheless I drank my 7 dollar beer with a smile since I was out to a game with my wife and friends. The hotdog for 3 bucks wasn't bad, but I can't believe the friggin price of a beer at a game. Anyone else think this is absolutely ridiculous?? Or am I just a crybaby? lol
Overall it was a great time, got to watch an awesome game won in the bottom of the 9th with a tie-breaking solo shot homer to left field. The place shook and everyone went nuts. Afterwards we hung out for fireworks night and then made our way home."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

Gotta agree with ya... the cost of menial food items at entertainment venues has become outlandish!The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.
