According to Wikipedia:
- The stadium seats 80,000, making it the 3rd largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity.
- The stadium is the largest domed stadium in the world.
- It has the world's largest column-free interior.
- It has the largest high definition video screen
And that all makes sense for a Texas thing I guess. If we ever get free vendor tickets we will go. Otherwise, ....not so much.
Anyway the baseball stadium suite was very nice. This is a view from the suite looking out over our outdoor seating area:That guy on the far left was a really good-looking New Yorker that I called "The Missing Baldwin Brother." He said he gets that alot. He was one of the vendors throwing the party.
This was the view of the field from the seating area:
And they had way too much food:
That wasn't even all of it and that's after the poor lady in charge of our suite had just taken out one of the chafing dishes (to the right of the mustard) to make room for a whole new dish of blueberry cobbler. I felt bad for her because my best friend used to do suite service at a ballpark and she always hated when the people ordered more food than there were surface areas. So I told those vendors to leave her a nice tip.
That takes care of the photo part but what this post was really about was the difference in myself since the last time. In May 2006 we also did a work/suite/baseball game and I was so nervous it was ridiculous. I looked back through my blog and saw that I didn't even post about it. This time I was relaxed and comfortable. I had fun. I was in the moment. I walked away from that game feeling very good. I think I'm ready for this wedding thing now.
