I go to the ballpark knowing full well I'm about to inject a couple thousand calories into my body.

The last thing I'm concerned about at a ballgame is eating healthy.

I'm surprised they didn't say the USCF churro was toxic.

Wow. A fruit cup and a salad are each healthier diet choices than barbeque and nachos. Who Knew?

Eating a couple of tacos down in one of those dank caves at old Comiskey has made me 20 times stronger than the average male!

And the last place I'd look for health information is Forbes.

That's weird, I've heard such great things about their ballpark reviews...

So I should eat a salad at the game? :rolleyes:

I think I bought one thing last year in 15 games, and that was a brat. I spend all my money on beer, don't really care about eating when I'm there. Beer's one thing I don't mind getting gouged on. 5 bucks for a hot dog? No thanks. I usually have a bite of something at the tailgate anyway.

Interesting to what some other parks are serving. Just because I go to a ball game doesn't mean I eat crap though... I try not to eat the food at all anyway, as it is a giant rip. I will have a few beers though, even though they are a rip as well, however, beer is beer though.

Always is. A favorite of mine is PNC Park serves Quaker Steak and Lube wings. They kick ass.

So does a Lemon Chill count as a fruit cup? :wink:

I can honestly say I've never seen anyone at a ballgame eating any of the healthy selections. If you're eating a fruit cup and a sushi roll at a ballgame, you're missing the point, IMO.

...and you had to dig into the "In-Depth" link to find that out.

On the other hand I think the Cell has some catching up to do. Bacon/Rings/Half pound Burger? I need that.

Thank goodness I don't have to decide between a Twinkie Dog and a Taco Dog...

We should e-mail Brooks - we need a Twinkie Dog night at the Cell.
