Atlanta Braves Promote Field Of Trans-Fatty Dreams

Well, I guess my hometown baseball team didn’t have much luck with the “90 days same-as-cash” ticket financing scheme. So now it’s on to the next genius idea:
Here are some of the mouth-watering details:

Kick back and relax this summer in the Braves new All-You-Can-Eat Seats! Purchase a Basic Package and enjoy UNLIMITED ballpark fare including Hot Dogs, Nachos, peanuts, popcorn and Coca-Cola products…all for one low price! Or upgrade to the BBQ and More Package and enjoy UNLIMITED ballpark fare plus BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, BBQ Chicken Wings, Cole Slaw, Baked Potato Salad, Corn Bread and Budweiser and Bud Light.
Food and beverages are served out of a private concession stand, just around the corner from your seats. Upon entering, you’ll receive a special wristband that will give you access to all your favorite ballpark food during the game. Limit four items per concession stand visit.

Part of the irony here is that this season, the tagline for the Braves is “Welcome To The Bigs.” Are we talking big leagues or big asses? Either way, this idea sounds very minor-league to me.

  1. The KC Royals are doing the same thing. Of course, the GM, Dayton Moore, came from the Braves…

  2. I think it’s actually a pretty good deal. When a hot dog cost $3.50, nachos are $4 and a beer is $6.50, you don’t have to eat and drink much to get your money’s worth. Especially when you’re taking the family to a game.
    You know how much beer toddlers drink.
