    Concessions??

    Ok, so what was up with the concessions at the game Friday? I went to three different vendors at half time trying to find a couple of pops and something to eat, all three had nothing but peanuts to sell. I finally get to one and the guys are just standing around as the line gets bigger... I know it was a big crowd but did they not plan for this?

    That has always been a problem. They seem to not plan well. During the cold games, just try and find some hot chocolate....

    Yeah, I waited in one line for a water, told to go to another once I got up there, waited in that line, they then told me they were out so I had to go back to the other line again, where they tried to send me away before I told them I would bring my pregnant wife back to deal with them if they didn't find me a bottle of water.
    Tropical snow line was terrible as well as the pizza line.

    I didn't even know they had the concessions going on Friday. I could have used some peanuts!

    Typically the concession stands are only open during the game on gameday.

    You can bring bottled water into the stadium if it is unopened.

    I can relate to the pregnant wife scenario. What baby, wants baby gets.
