At the Ted

Sure, the Braves have been a little disappointing this year in their performance. But, let me put this before you, when you can by the $1 Clark Howard seats and park for $5, aren’t you just looking for a relaxing night out at the ballpark? I am. And that’s typically what I get when I go during the week.


I went to the Braves game last night (wonderfully pitched game by Chuck James) and was reminded of what a delightful experience weekday night games can be. Especially quick ones. There are less people at the park so you have more room to spread out, eat your chili cheese dog, and enjoy the game. Also, there are no lines for anything, be it bathroom, dippin’ dots, or hot dogs. There are no drunken fools screaming obscenities the whole time (though I don’t go to the Top of the Chop, so I can’t vouch for that area). And for that cheap of a price (even for a family of four you could get in for $9 plus parking), you probably don’t mind leaving early if the game is boring or you have an early wake up.


Just saying…

[Update – 2:56 pm] I was one section over from these guys. Yes. They are pretty funny.

    Ha – I was at the game too, Daniel.
    I was the guy. Had a shirt. Nachos.

    It was odd to see foul balls go into sections down the 3rd base line that were COMPLETELY empty.

    We got tired of $7 beers and left in the 5th inning to go to the Yacht Club and watch the 2nd half of the West Virginia game.
    $7 for one beer at the Ted….$7 for 3 beers at the Yacht Club. You do the math.

    The Braves haven’t disappointed me at all this year. Then again I am a Mets fan.

    And what, pray tell, is a “dippin’ dot”?
