What a joke! Bleacher Report posts a story written by some 17 year old Dukie wannabe about partying at MLB ballparks, some of which he admits to never visiting not to mention that he's not even of legal drinking age. Looks like he'll have a great future writing fiction for the NY Times just like his hero Jayson Blair.

Friends don't let friends read Bleacher Report.

Seriously, if you read that site, you may as well admit to people that you still use IE on your personal computer and have a Hotmail email address.

IE and Hotmail are anachronisms, they are has-beens.

Bleacher Report is a never-was.

Philly for baseball at Citizens is fine...the fanbase had the horrific Vet but since 2004 CPB is a great venue.

Philly is the Boston interleague rival and we have had some fun since 1997.

I went to Citizens last year for the Strasburg injury game and it was as raucous as a college football tailgate. Bleacher Report is pitiful sports content, but Citizens is fun.

..but guessing US Cellular is low on the list. US Cellular fun but probably not party fun (I am thinking frat boys/soro girls). US Cellular is more family/baseball fun. Not really a good place to get drunk but a few do.

For that matter, he could get a job at the Sun-Times reviewing music.

I don't read Bleacher Report, however I do have a hotmail address. Am I now to be expelled to the realm of the terminally uncool?

One of the bad parts about this list is that the author clearly did zero research on public transit near any of these stadia. He lists it as being good near all these places, failing to take note that Arlington, TX is the largest city in the US without a public transit system.

Apparently this helps explain why:

Dear dumbass author (of the article posted by the OP):
Nice research, buddy.

Just thumbed through them, but Chase Field always makes me claustrophobic. I hate how it's built up.

I've never been there but it is one of the oddest shaped stadiums of the new ballpark wave of the last 10 years. It almost looks rectangular like a football stadium.

Really? Is this due to the shape of the land there, or do they use it for other purposes? It just looks so odd, especially next to a great skyline like PNC Park.
