So, if any of you saw my other post, you'd see that I got this great deal at training camp. I got a great pork tenderloin sandwich there, it was supposed to be $8, after practice, they brought that price down to $2. That's less than the Sharpies they were selling in the team store ($2.50). I don't know about you, but to me, that's a great deal.
This is something of a "we-have-nothing-to-talk-about" article, even though camp is upon us. That sandwich story has nothing to do with football, none, except for the fact that I got it at a football practice. So I'm going to rant about food in sports.
Everyone knows food at a professional sporting event is a rip off, but if you want food you have to buy it there. I always find it funny when people throw food onto the field after a call they don't like. BIG waste of money. It's also funny when people throw anything but beer bottles. You really think that your burger is going to knock out the field judge? People go savage when the ref screws up, but they should have enough sense to not chuck their hot dog.
Now, changing topics completely, have any of you ever heard of the Montgomery Biscuits, AA baseball team? Coolest nickname in sports. Hands down. The promotions would be epic. (Speaking of promotions, but changing topics completely, again, have any of you ever heard of Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead Night, another minor league baseball thing?)
You know what, the Biscuits don't have the coolest nickname in sports. That title belongs to this team.
Finally, just to make this post relevant to football, it's nice that training camp is upon us. Players are starting to fight for roster spots, and the stars are working on building chemistry. What I found there: the team is going to be really, really good. The monster has been built, and now it's being refined to contend for a Super Bowl. I recommend that you get out there and enjoy the fact that football is back. Watch the players, get some autographs, take some notes, have a good time. Just don't buy the sandwiches until practice ends.
