Rob Neyer’s Turner Field experience

I was surprised at the many thousands of empty seats. I was impressed by the huge video board. I was distressed by the volume of the P.A. system, which must have been set at 11, and dismayed by the between-innings “entertainment” that reminded me of a Tuesday night in the Midwest League.

Who does he think he is, besmirching the Midwest League like that?

    But did J.J. from Peachtree TV greet him upon his entrance?

    Now, that would’ve made a difference…

    If he would have posted updates to the Office open threads with his Smartphone, it would have made his in-game experience at Turner much more pleasant.

  3. Seriously… he is spot on! I’ve been to every ballpark in the US and Canada except for Seattle and we have the lamest entertainment hands down. It may seem cute to someone who has never been there before – but to see the same thing OVER AND OVER year in and year out. But if he’d been in the know, he’d have gotten seats over the dugouts – the TomaHoes do not wear undies so you get a free shot every time (just take notice of the players some time – they suddenly get up and move about the dugout whenever the TomaHoes are up there). But yes, time to replace Thank God I’m a Country Boy with something like Chicken Fried or Chattahooche!!

  4. When Ted Turner and Jerry Seinfeld co-own the team we’ll have killer stand-up every night. That and Civil War reenactments. “Tonite, funny man George Wallace. Then, immediately following the game, The Battle of Shiloh.”

  5. I’d gladly take Mark Cuban.

    Do you all think those Kiss Cam camera views are live, or are most of them taped from previous games? I’ve always sensed a conspiracy.

    General Joseph Johnston Bobble Head Night next Tuesday!

  8. I can’t speak for every Kiss Cam at every ballpark, but I believe I read a news story a few years back about an AWOL probationer who was spotted by his officer on Kiss Cam at some stadium, and promptly arrested. See, it’s good for something.

  9. Agreed CB – maybe we could write a petition and send it to Mark Cuban letting him know how much we’d appreciate it if he bought our team.

    Like him or not, the dude spends money on his team, and they make the playoffs nearly every year. Matter of fact, they would’ve won an NBA title that one year had the referees not called a foul anytime a defender got within 5 feet of Dewayne Wade.

  10. Mark would have to partner with Ted for MLB to get on board.
