What About the Game?

Now that we have the new Target Field Stadium for the Twins to play in, the pundits have hyped it to us - the baseball consumers. The way I hear it is that we are urged to come downtown early and visit restaurants, bars etc. before the game. Then we are urged to come to the wonderful new stadium and enjoy the delights of several food places. After the game it will take awhile to get all the fans away from the downtown stadium. We are then urged to visit more local nightspots for more food and drink.

My question is - What about the game? It seems like the actual reason for it all, the good old American passtime - watching baseball has been trumped by all of the food and beverage attractions. And then we wonder why we are all obese? end
