Ballpark Tour: Safeco Field

I was able to attend a game at Safeco Field on Saturday night, and it happened to be Ken Griffey Jr. Mariners Hall of Fame Induction Night. That was pretty awesome. Of course the Mariners got blown out 10-0, but it’s a beautiful stadium with some pretty interesting and varied food options. I would definitely put it in my top ten (well, out of the 17 or so ballparks I’ve been to so far).

I hate to say this, but if I’m being objective, out of the six ballparks opened between 1999 and 2001 (AT&T, Minute Maid, Comerica Park, Miller Park, PNC Park, Safeco), Comerica is probably the worst of the bunch. I mean it’s a decent park, but there are too many seats that just feel too far away from the field for some reason and there’s nothing special about the food options. Anyways…

Searching for an Adjective for A-Rod

The big news this week is the Biogenesis suspensions handed down by MLB yesterday. And the media is just piling on A-Rod, and I love it. Usually you would feel a little bad for a guy when everyone is so determined to just beat him down, but seriously, the guy has no redeeming qualities as a human being. That seems harsh, but I’m so sick of this garbage. Just go away.

Now, the dumping on A-Rod has been so one-sided that there will be those in the media that pop up to provide contrarian views, because that’s what they do. Some writers will try to defend him, to say that people are being TOO harsh on him or saying that MLB is singling him out. Those writers are just full of crap. A-Rod deserves worse than what is coming to him. He is a human turd.

I got a car wash yesterday and it came with free “fragrance”. I chose “new car” scent, but when I got in my car afterwards, it smelled nothing like a new car. It had this awful, cheap perfume smell that is one of the most unbearable scents of all time. It smells like the dirty, unwashed crotch of a nonagenarian gypsy. It smells like the liquid feces of a lactose intolerant rhinoceros. Basically, it smells like A-Rod. It’s the worst.
