Hey there has been some positive coverage of the Sox in the media. Rachel Ray of the Food Network, was making a corn dish recipe that she got from attending a game at Comiskey Park---hey can ya believe it? At least it's something positive. :D: :gulp:


But then, of course, the guy who used to host Double Dare had his show on---talking about "the hot dog" and how it is a ballpark staple. Guess who's ballpark they went to to do that piece? I turned off the tv. :angry: :whiner:

Just look at it the way i do. The cubs are a historic joke and loser and we can see this becuase their stadium has more respect than there franchise. People and the media just love wrigley for some reason, take away the ivy and brick walls and im sure it would go away. Wrigley gets respect, the cubs are merely associated with it, but no one really respects losers, lovable or not.

Yeah I know, and I don't usually complain all that much, but you'd think they'd show the park that is KNOWN FOR IT'S GREAT FOOD, oh well. Thank God for Rachel Ray though---I think I'm in love. She seems like someone that would be a Sox fan if she lived in Chicago.

If you watched the end of that show (I'm addicted to the Food Network), they came to Comiskey to interview the head chef in the Stadium Club restaurant and said it had probably the best food in baseball.

And speaking about Marc Summers, did you know he has OCD? He used to like freak out when he hosted Double Dare. I guess after a show he had to like sit by himself for hours. Just a little tid bit for you all.

Hey thanks for letting me know that. I guess I should have watched the whole show. But I was in the hous for most of the day yesterday, and when I do that I start to get a headache, and seeing that clip didn't help any, so I left.

What is OCD?

I just got it on my cable system last week. I've watched it at other people homes, and they'd have it on quite a bit. Now I understand.

Oh ok, sort of like Jack Nicholson in "As Good As It Gets". I don't know how he cuold have been on a show like Double Dare if he was a neat freak---that had to be torture for him.

I love to torture my students with the fact that the food at Wrigley is contracted by Aramark, who also do the food at the U of C. While it's OK as far as stuff that comes out of a cafeteria, it really doesn't rank as "food."

At least the dining facilities look nice at the U of C.
Emory just got rid of Aramark, thank god. That food was unbearable. The joke at school [Oxford College of Emory U.] was that many students had the typical freshman 15.... they lost 15 pounds. I lost twenty just from not eating very much at all freshman year. Here's to Sodexho being better. Can't be worse.

Comiskey does have good food, and not at completely outrageous prices like at other [Turner Field, cough, cough] stadiums. Seriously though, at Turner Field you can get tickets for as little as $5 or $1 every game; Coke or a hot dog will set you back $6, each.

Actually, Aramark does food in a LOT of places, including a lot of hotsie totsie restaurants in leading hotels across the country. Their stuff varies from place to place & a lot of it is kinda you get what you pay for, lots of cafeteria/food service contracts are trying to minimize the costs and you'll get similar whether its say Aramark or Marriott's or whatever. I contract with Aramark for a large event I run in Portland so I'm pretty familar with their range of offerings.

By the way, shouldn't this thread really be in the Parking Lot?
