As I Lay Eating

“Asik and Destroy” – Stacey King, Bulls commentator & player commenting on Bulls center, Omer Asik.

A couple of years ago, I was looking up the Oakland A’s website for baseball tickets in which I stumbled upon an All You Can Eat season ticket.  I wasn’t too sure of the price of it, but the season ticket entitled you to 81 games of the A’s, as well as an unlimited supply of hot dogs, nachos and soft drink for the duration of the game.  I could imagine myself completely drowning those nachos with the hot liquid cheese, and stuffing as much hot dogs down my throat.  I can also imagine the damage I might be doing in the toilets afterwards.

Peterborough United are offering 10 season tickets priced at 15k pounds each, for a seat in the ‘director’s box’ and an endless supply of pies and champagne.  Pies and champagne!  I would be slightly confuse on my status in the world if I consumed those two together.

The Amarillo Sox Baseball Club offer the “Bud Light Bullpen All You Can Eat Party Deck”, in which you are allowed to have as many hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, chicken nuggets (gold!), french fries, potato chips, ice cream, soft drink and beer (I assumed this would be Bud Light) at $25 per person.  $25???  That works out to be a pub meal and a pot of beer here in Melbourne.

For $70, you can catch an Atlanta Braves game while devouring smoked chicken bbq sandwich, buffalo chicken wings, all beef franks (just say hot dogs), baked potato salad, chocolate chip cookies, soda and draft beer.

With the new Major League Baseball starting soon, 19 out of the 30 baseball teams will have an All You Can Eat ticket available during the course of the season.  To me, that is heaven.

I’m off to watch the Hawks play on Sunday with no all you can eat options.  This is depressing.

And to my ”I’m not to be blamed for your gambling problem, but here is my best sports bet of the week”…

Butler has been paying off for me last week.  I hope it did the same for you.

This bet has no reasoning whatsoever, but it’s just fun to see who scores first.
