Hey everyone. I hinted at this the other day in the comments but I wanted to put the word out cause a) I’ve got some questions and b) it’d be neat to meet some of you displaced Cardinal fans. I’ll be coming down to Memphis for Friday, Saturday and Sunday to catch all three games. This is basically my summer vacation and I’m pretty pumped about it.
On Friday and Sunday I’ll be sitting in section 101 row A seat 5. On Saturday it’ll be row D (same section and seat). That’s the area to the left of home plate if you were standing on the pitchers mound. I’ll have a white STL Cardinals hat on so that should help to distinguish me. Feel free to stop by and say hey (my real name is Tim although if you use my moniker, I’ll probably respond to that too).
1 – How early does the park open? I have every intention of going and watching BP so that I can snap tons of pictures and take some notes.
2 – How’s the parking around the stadium? The city site makes it look like there are several public lots near the stadium. Do these fill up? Are they pay lots?
3 – How’s traffic in Memphis? I’m not the best of navigators (although I’ll basically be going up and down Popular Ave, IIRC) so I’m a little concerned about this.
4 – Anything I should know about the stadium? Do they have a gift shop? Is the beer/food expensive? Clue me in.
I’d appreciate any pointers on anything else you have input on. If you are planning on saying hello drop a comment or shoot me an e-mail (timamccullough AT gmail DOT com) so that I know whether I’ll be overwhelmed or not. See you in Memphis!
