Dodgers Offer All-You-Can-Eat Seats

Now this is the kind of Dodger promotion I can get on board with. I don't know if the Dodgers learned from last year's Lipstick debacle, but their new gameday promotion selling all-you-can-eat tickets is genius. For $35 a fan can buy a ticket and eat all the Dodger Dogs he can squeeze into his gut. Normally, a ticket and three dogs and you're pushing $35 anyway. This is great. It's like Vegas, you can make your money back at the buffet.

The Dodgers have no idea what they're in for. I'll be stuffing Dodger Dogs into my pockets for the ride home. Midnight snack? How about a Dodger Dog? This is going to be a good summer.


I wouldn't buy those seats - think about it - everyone in them is going to be fat as hell, and spilling over into your seat. And when you combine that problem over a whole row, you're going to be hugging up against the guys on either side of you. Not very pleasant, especially during the hotter summer months.

I don't know if I'd bother getting tickets in this section. How many seats can I eat, anyway?

You guys beat me to this one. The organization has received a ton of grief from fans and especially health advocacy groups (please - worry about something important you losers). This is pure genius. I wonder how many dogs they'll be planning on per ticket sold? I typically eat two and though I'm not a big fan of the thug element in the RF pavillion, I'll be giving this promotion a chance.

I have a buddy who I once saw eat 8 dogs, buns and all. He's probably already prepping for this one. I imagine the lines would be long, however, especially considering candy and other items are not going to be free.

I wonder if you'd get frisked on the way out. I mean those all-you-can-eat buffets don't exactly encourage doggie bags. Should be interesting.

The St. Louis Blues are so desperate to fill seats that they are offering free food concessions for this weekend's games. We'll see on NBC tomorrow if it works.

I hope Kobayshi isn't a Dodger's fan.

Sounds like a good chance for Dennys Reyes to return to the Dodger Blue!

Yup, Bartlardo Colon is already lobbying Stoneman for a trade up the 405.

Terry Forster is coming out of retirement just for this.

Don Koharski is planning to put aside the skates and become a Dodgers' ump.

I have the fat neighbor problem covered. I'll buy an aisle seat and make my buddy sit next to me. That way, no fatties flowing over into my seat. However, the thug element is something I didn't consider. Right field is typically less thugish than left field, but I'm sure those types will find their way across the outfield seats. Yeah, this might not work. I mean, I could still go and eat some hot dogs or 20, but it's hard to actually watch a game among beachballs, fights and "fans" drunk by the third pitch.
