Last night we went to see the Cardinals play the Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston. We were joined by many other Lutherans who are attending the LCMS convention. The ballpark is about 3 short blocks from the Hilton where most everyone is staying which made the trip to and from the game as easy as anything could be.
The game was great, the Cards won and the Texans sitting around us were congenial and fun, not minding at all that we cheered for St. Louis. The one thing we quickly became aware of was that Astros fans leave their seats to go out and get food-constantly. I'll bet the people in front, next to, and behind us went out 5 or 6 times.
The food was much better than found at Busch. I've whined before about how the food at Busch is not hot, pre-cooked and wrapped. Not at Minute Maid. They grill on the spot and the full size batting helmet was filled to the brim with popcorn at a decent price. Plus, the variety of concessions was fantastic, including Mexican and barbque.
