There’s a reason Wade Bogg’s twitter handle is ChickenMan, and that’s not just because he got blown in Philly last night.
They probably would have left me behind on day one. Not because of endurance, but because I would have been talking only in “Ice Ice Baby” lyrics the entire time.
Yeah. You could probably use northern or western shoreline interchangeably.
Thank you kindly.
Otherwise, I will say the SNL skit is a pretty good exaggeration of basic Dunks stereotypes. The detail that killed me is when Affleck shows the coupon on the smaht phone with the busted screen. The number of times I’ve seen that in real life is high.
Bostonian here. It depends on the time of day. At my regular Dunks, it’s never more than 5 minutes, because most everyone who goes in are regulars, know what they want, and are moving along to get to work. When you go outside of peak morning rush, then it can get weird. Though my regular one is a 24-hour one and gets…
Both soccer and college football seem related because are so tribal in terms of fan attachment and fan response seems more visceral than other pro sports. Look at the reactions in Hamburg after it was relegated in the Bundesliga last week. People were throwing road flares and fireworks.
I travel internationally often. I never eat at McDonald’s here, but always seek out one meal at foreign McDonalds. (95% of the time I eat local while abroad.)
Left exit only, because fucking Connecticut
In addition to that the image is ossified. I’m in my 30s, and when I see someone riding a Harley, all I see some old white dude going through a mid-life crisis, doing Sons of Anarchy Cosplay. I don’t see adventure or freedom, but sadness.
I was on a family summer trip to Seattle in 1994, and we’d gone to the game right before the ceiling tiles fell from the Kingdome. Stuck in traffic on the way out of the lot, we were listening to the M’s postgame in the car. The team was running a series of radio spots. I forget what the theme of the spots was, but…
I think Atlanta will be a test case for that, because that’s basically what Sun Trust did. Put the ballpark out of the downtown core, nearer to the wealthier NW suburbs. I went last season, and while it’s a nice park, it’s generic as fuck. I’m from Boston, and they have a fucking Wahlburgers. I didn’t go all the way…
From what I remember, the data was based on the full season tickets, which I’m sure is probably going to come from the corporate sector like you said. It definitely begs the question of how elastic is demand for corporate accounts based on location. Definitely need more data on that.
Absolutely. A point I meant to mention. I’m sure the pecking order for a team is the corporate interests that buy the luxury suites/boxes, then full season ticket holders in the premium seats, and then down the line. The big money is in the suites, so those have to be close to the business core, or they make no sense.
I was at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference a few years ago. There was a panel by Ticketmaster on how they use fan data to market ticket packages. The manager of sales for the D-Backs was there at the times, and my rough memory of the numbers was that half of their season tickets were from accounts within 5 miles…
As a bourbon drinker, barrel makers are the heroes we deserve.
Only the vanguard.
He’s the Tom Friedman for the “Guys who Don’t Get Laid”
The politics of failure have failed. It is up to us to make them work again.
