Bye Bye 'Blatt

Or at least the College World Series at Rosenblatt. Here are a few things I'll miss about the ol' biddy:
- Zesto's, such delicious ice cream, with a beer garden in the back.
- The Church Bar, it's a bar in an old church across the street from the front gate....will never be duplicated. OK - which do you like better, the ice cream parlor beer garden, or the bar in a church?!?!?
- No cup holders - who needs 'em? Of course, they don't serve beer, so who really does need 'em.
- Sitting next to strangers and it's 95 degrees with a heat index of 105, clear blue sky, no breeze and it's only the second inning. nasty plastic seats, sweat dripping from behind your knees. Yuck.
- Sitting down in your seat and banging your knees against the back of the seat in front of you.
- Still no cup holders - the less you drink, the less bathroom breaks. Well, I'm getting a little parched, but I hate those long lines.....
- Either paying $20 to park in some guys front yard a couple blocks from the ball park, or finding a FREE spot on the street and it's within a few miles of the ball park. You will need the long walk to sober up after the Church bar.
- Compact concourses. Hot and air-less, as well.
- Bathrooms that were built with the park, in 1940.
- And last but not least no cup holders - I think I might pass out now from dehydration. I'm taking some Jesus water for the long walk back to the car....
