    Time to Rage-Concession Food

    This has been bothering me all year. Concession stand food. It's been bad all year at Jack Trice and I havn't had a good experience at Hilton either. When I want a walking taco and am paying $5 for it, I expect you to put some meat on it. Who cares if you run out? At least make the people who get the walking taco first happy. I'm tired of eating a bag full of chips and shredded cheese. If I want to order a big pretzel...I can't do that either. Stale as ****. How hard is it for these people to keep the food fresh?

    That's why you fill up on food and beer to the point when you feel like you're going to puke during tailgating.

    Still, there are plenty of people that'd love to have decent concession food.

    Not if you feel like you're going to puke.

    I remember when my mom went through menopause. Keep your chin up, it won't last forever. ...and the hot flashes will keep you warm during all those late fall games.

    It's okay to be upset about bad concession food, but save your rage for something important like racism, sexism, or ageism.

    This coming from a poster whose name is MEANDean...

    Re: Time to Rage-Concession Food

    People actually pay those over-inflated concession prices? Huh.

    I don't, but yes it actually happens at every stadium across the country. Your holier than thou attitude is getting old.

    Re: Time to Rage-Concession Food

    I think a lot of the people that work concessions are students. I worked at Hilton making clone cones last year for the fishing club. They make a donation to the club (which isn't a whole lot) but any little amount helps the cause. However, there are some people that work concessions where it's pretty easy to tell they were never enrolled at an institution of higher learning.

    Yes, "holier than thou" is my attitude because I choose not to overspend on stadium food. You got me.
