Ballpark Review: Busch Stadium

Hit the new Busch on Friday just in time to see the Cards pour an 18-3 gallon drum of ass whoopin on the Braves. Here's the rundown:

Red, red, and more red. Pretty much everything you would expect from a brand new ballpark: wide concourses, roomy seats, large menu, clean, etc. Great view of the Worlds Largest Croquet Hoop arch. Nothing to complain about, really. Except for all the Cardinals fans.
Score: 4.5 out of 5
St. Louis does like their baseball, no doubt about that. When your NFL team has only been their for about 12 years, you don't have an NBA team, no large college to dominate the town, and the Blues play, em, wonder the Cards are king. It was a fun atmosphere inside and out. Score: 4.5 out of 5

Bonus Points :
- They don't sell Miller products. Minus 1 Point
- There's a giant crater right next door where old Busch was. Gonna have to order a few yards of top soil and fill that thing in, fellas. Minus 1
- Jeremy with this classic dialog:
Jeremy: "Can't believe I caught a Pujols home run ball!"
Some random guy: "Uh, Pujols didn't hit a home run."
Jeremy: "But it was foul."
Random guy: Blank look on his face and just walks away. Add 1
- You think beer is expensive in Milwaukee? Try $8.25! Minus 1
- The jumbo hot dog was ridiculously good. Add 1
Total Bonuses: Minus 1

Ballpark: 4.5
Atmosphere: 4.5
Bonus Points: - 1

Grand Total: 8.5 Out of 10....highly recommended.

I think the crater outise the stadium id the "Ballpark Village" which will be a residentia/retail mix, something downtown StL certainly needs. Having lived there for a summer, I really liked the St. Louis metro area, but the downtown, outside of German Strassenfest, was depressing.

Not selling Miller products should be a plus.

Just because morons in Milwaukee think you HAVE to drink Miller doesn't make it a good beer.

Once they are done screwing over Milwaukee by moving to Shitcago will people still be drinking the swill?

I drink Miller because I think it tastes better than Bud. Call me crazy, but it's just my opinion.

ClownShipLollypop. said...

I'm not so much opposed to the taste as I am the horrible shits you get from all the chemicals and turd water that is put into it.

I call the next days adventure MAD. Miller Anal Destruction.

Oh, and just to clarify; I wasn't calling you a moron. I meant it for those who drink Miller because everyone else does.

I've had so many people tell me how bad Bud tastes, but then haven't even tried it.

Miller Chill = Bud Lime = Shit

I would rather go down on Whoopie Goldberg then drink a budweiser.
