I'll have more to share on this topic in the coming weeks, to say the least. But I couldn't agree more with the notion of affordable concessions. I got the feeling last season the Cardinals (ownership/management) expected Memphis baseball fans to pay big-league prices for beer and hot dogs. And the economies of scale weren't healthy. While you might have two fans each buying a $7 beer, I'd rather see a family of four buying (multiple) $3 sodas or (gasp!) treats in the range of $2. Would quickly surpass that $14 beer sale. And likely bring that family back.
And today's fun began in a town called Dixville Notch. Like a script . . . .
The voice of a region, we called him Big Jack.
Larry and Louisville, it's a Tiger comeback!
Tiger football he called, in good times and bad.
Great Scott, for Jack Eaton, we all should be glad.
I referred to Oklahoma and Michigan as "mid-level" programs, as Packrat mentions, to emphasize quite the opposite. Last time the Tigers, Sooners, and Wolverines were in the same sentence . . . had to be an NCAA basketball tournament in the mid-Eighties. New territory for the U of M football program (that being University of Memphis). Thanks for reading.
Back when the world had meaning . . . .
Good point, Ash. Should have said edge of our solar system. I remain quite awed.
Need one at the Baby Charlotte presentation.
