My Target Field Review

I'm not much for sports, #72.

Evan and I went to the new stadium last night...a date. Zzzzzzzz. I'll admit the stadium is pretty sweet. Awesome, in fact. We saw birds and helicopters and planes and bugs. Whoooeeeee! The baseball? They won. Neither team scored a single point in the last 6 innings. B-o-r-i-n-g. So, I had lots of time to people watch and analyze the fans around me. My findings:

  • Father and son directly in front of us. Each had 9 beers. Around #5 they both forgot all words except variations of the F-bomb. They spent $64 on seats and at least $72 on beer.
  • Kid next to me. Belated clapper. So weird. He was underage and his Dad kept giving him drinks of his beer.
  • Girl behind me. Looked like she'd taped spiders to her eyelids. Evidently didn't understand proper mascara application.
  • Multiple people with 'TC' tattoos. Really? Dumb.
  • Women over the age of 50 trying to look under the age of 30. Not cute.
  • Couple in front of us that left during the first inning because they couldn't fit in their seats.
  • People taking pictures of themselves watching the game more often than actually watching the game.

this was great. i also think the twins games are a snoozefest. it might be a bit more enjoyable outdoors. if you want a fun baseball game go to a st. paul saints game once. now that is a very interesting place to people watch!

Sounds like the tickets would be worth it just to see people like that! The game is just a bonus...

sounds pretty disgusting. i didn't go to many Twins' games , but, once when I went the guy behind me spilled beer all over me. my poor parents sort of looked aghast at me when i got home!
fun post though...kinda made it worth it, huh?
