Here are today's  Survey Questions.   Give your answers:

1. Which stadiums have you been to to see an NFL game, if any?  Current or former

Cleveland Muni.   Cleveland Browns stadium (Fistfuck  Energy Stadium?)  NRG Stadium, Houston.   Nissan Stadium...Nashville. 

I have toured a couple of others...but not during a game (Superdome/Lambeau).   And I have seen/driven around a number of others.

 

2. Which stadiums have you been to to see a Major League baseball game, if any?  Current or former

Been to games at:  Skydome, Toronto; Three Rivers...Pittsburgh; nka Hard Rock Stadium.. Miami..ish...when Florida Marlins played there; Riverfront--Cincinnati; Wrigley Field, Chicago;  Busch Stadium St. Louis; Coors Field, Denver.  the Metrodome in Minnesota;     I also saw the Blue Jays play in their old ballpark before the Skydome.  I think it was called Exhibition Stadium. And of course, Muni and The Jake.

I guess, to me, it is just a gentler, kinder, less expensive, easier process to have gone to a baseball game than a football game. 

 

3. Which stadiums/arenas have you been to to see either an NBA or an NHL game, if any?  Current or former

Only The Richfield Coliseum and the Q....or whatever it was formerly called.

I have been in a few other NBA/NHL arenas....but for other events...like conventions  (Anaheim, Delta Center Salt Lake,  Denver, Montreal)

 

4. The Super Bowl commercials for Bud Light seemed to imply that having Corn Syrup in beer is bad.   Do you believe it is bad?  Or not? If so, why? If not, why?

Somebody wake up Westside Steve to answer this question. 

I asked this question because I don't know.

 

5. Who makes the best fast food hamburgers?

Think that Wendy's has the best basic burger

Bud Light cared enough to make a big point of it during their 5 million dollar Super Bowl commercial.  I just wondered why they would think that is a big selling point.

Well....that is an egocentric, narcissistic, esoteric response that applies to only you, yourself, and you.

The fate of "Merica"  may depend on the answer.

I'm going with Hamburger Station. They are like White Castle, but good. Now for hamburger restaurants? Hodge's in Barberton is damn good... Thurman's in Columbus is too.

That description fits MarkO perfectly, I'm surprised that you're surprised about that...

About the survey, I can't answer any of the questions, but I gotta say that apart from a football game, I bet I'd enjoy watching a NHL game live.

     Wendy's with Sonic second because of the bun.

Here are today's  Survey Questions.   Give your answers:

1. Which stadiums have you been to to see an NFL game, if any?  Current or former

 Alphabetically... Carolina, Cincinnati, Cleveland (old and new), Detroit (Silverdome and Ford), Houston, Indianapolis (old and new), Kansas City, Rams (in St. Louis), Miami, Tampa, Nashville.  11 down, 21 to go on the bucket list... PS, Kansas City is my favorite away stadium. great venue, great Tailgating...  

2. Which stadiums have you been to to see a Major League baseball game, if any?  Current or former

 Cleveland (old and new), Cincinnati     Don't much care for baseball- sort of boring...  

3. Which stadiums/arenas have you been to to see either an NBA or an NHL game, if any?  Current or former

NBA-  Cleveland- Richfield and Quicken, Indianapolis, NHL- Detroit (Red Wings), Columbus (Blue Jackets)

4. The Super Bowl commercials for Bud Light seemed to imply that having Corn Syrup in beer is bad.   Do you believe it is bad?  Or not? If so, why? If not, why?

Somebody wake up Westside Steve to answer this question. 

 From my winemaking POV-  ?? If they're using it as a sweetener? So what? They want you to believe light Kayro syrup is toxic? That's essentially what corn syrup is...  If they're using it as a fermentation product- again so what? Our friendly yeast  Saccharomyces  cerevisiae  that turns sugar into alcohol doesn't much care where the sugar it's fermenting originally came from. Fer instance, top shelf vodkas not only come from corn, but wheat and potatoes. (it can't ferment oddball sugars that I won't bore you the details with though). But corn syrup is pretty edible to those yeasts... Us Ohio winemakers routinely have to dump table sugar into our grape juice to get the alcohol level up...  BTW, if you look at the ingredients in Budweiser, you'll notice rice is involved. (LOL, you ferment pure rice, you wind up with Sake.) You can take any starch (which is simply very long chains of sugar molecules linked together) and enzymatically break it down into it's component sugar. Just my 0.02 :)  

5. Who makes the best fast food hamburgers?

I'm a junk food junkie- very few that I don't like- Frisch's if you made me choose my top one.  As an aside to Ag, I haven't tried Sonic yet- one of these days. The parking lot of our local Sonic is so routinely empty, I'm sort of shocked they haven't folded up yet.  There's no Jack-in-the Box in Ohio I'm aware of, but the one in Houston was pretty good... There's a reason Red Barn went out of business- their burgers were awful...

PS, Kansas City is my favorite away stadium. great venue, great Tailgating...  

You take the cake so far with the most venues.   IF the schedule makers are kind....I maybe could consider doing another road trip to either  Phoenix or San Fran in December this coming year.  (the only open time for me to go really).    Is that something that would interest you...or others?

2. Which stadiums have you been to to see a Major League baseball game, if any?  Current or former

 Cleveland (old and new), Cincinnati     Don't much care for baseball- sort of boring...  

But, to be honest, the stadium experience of going to a baseball game is oh so much better than a football game.  Far more relaxing....you don't have the constant barrage of commercials etc. and screaming announcers yelling at you.  As you know, I was not thrilled with the stadium experience at NFL games....but I am willing to put up with the clamor for the sake of the trip that I would take in conjunction with a game...and to go to the tailgates etc.  

3. Which stadiums/arenas have you been to to see either an NBA or an NHL game, if any?  Current or former

NBA-  Cleveland- Richfield and Quicken, Indianapolis, NHL- Detroit (Red Wings), Columbus (Blue Jackets)

Alrighty then.  Nice effort.

Hey...I used to work for Red Barn.   And I would wager that if you went back 40 years to when they were around, you would likely find that their burgers were no worse than some of the crap they sell now.

It has spectacular views of the mountains but it was built a long long long long time ago and its crowded in the walkways, crowded in the seats and basically every new ballpark that's been built in the last 25 years is a nicer and more enjoyable experience than going to Dumpster stadium.

No worse than rice. But just a cheap ass shortcut to making the Brew.

LOL? A Baseball game? If you want to relax, drink beer and get some sun- I recommend heading out to a beach. A lot cheaper than going to a baseball game, and watching the waves coming in is about as exciting...
