So we get to thank Wes for inspiring Stallone to do the reboot of Rambo?

Awesome TR Joey. If you're ever in the midwest, I'll take you to a Cubs, Sox or Brewers game. I am a HUGE Brewers fan, and love the stadium. It's also a great place for tailgating which is a must at any Brewers game (which you can't do in Chicago). However the BEST part of tailgating in Milwaukee, is that you could use beer as currency!! I don't know how many times people have come up to our group and say "hey, I'll give you two (insert beer name here) for a hot dog".

On a random note, I just got back from Vegas. As I was walking through the Forum Shops, there is a store there called Field of Dreams (or something along those lines). Pete Rose was there for autographs, however I didn't get a picture or an autograph. :(

^Yeah, Pete Rose owns a portion of that store. Autographs are free, but he'll only sign merchandise purchased there. Or at least that was the case when I was there last in 2006. Baseballs started at $35.

^I think that was the case. I wasn't paying too much attention to it, but I thought I overheard a guy say you had to buy something. But, if you wanted a picture for free, you had to stay behind a rope.

That is an amazing story. I'd love to visit that place if that's the sort of thing that goes on during tailgating.

Miller Park is OK, for a park. Sightlines are good, food is good, I just don't think it has much ambience. Unless you stay outside to tailgate.

You better like crappy Miller beer though. ::lol::

Wrigley is still the best of the Midwest, for history and atmosphere. Although no one is there for the game anymore. It's one big bar.

Seeing that jojo is a Brewers fan in Illinois, I'm guessing they're a Packers fan too. Yuck.

^ I definitely agree with Miller Park. The place is pretty cool and the food is real good. I just didn't think the atmosphere was good at all. The fans were very tranquill at the game. Of course this was '03 when the Brewers still stunk. I was actually surprised at all the tailgating for a baseball game. I haven't seen it that often.

^^My visit to Green Bay to watch a Packers game is probably the most fun I've ever had at a pro sports event. The stadium and the crowd were great. I'd love to go back there some day.

Just saw this thread and I loved the report from Dodger Stadium last year! I used to love Eric Karros so I was glad to hear he was nice to you as a kid!

I am going to Fenway next week to watch the Sox play! Maybe I will post a TR!

Someday, I hope to find my own Indiana Jones.
