Tampa vs. Philadelphia
I’m planning to attend a few games this week at Yankee Stadium, but in the meantime, I’m pondering games in other cities. More specifically, I recently heard from someone who wants to book two Watch With Zack games with me and has given me a choice: July 2nd and 3rd at Tropicana Field or July 6th and 7th at Citizens Bank Park.
You’re probably thinking, “Go to Tampa, idiot! They get twenty-nine fans per game!!” but it’s not that simple. The Rays are going to be playing the Yankees those days, which means that Tropicana Field will be a madhouse, and in addition to that, the stadium will be opening just 90 minutes before game time. Citizens Bank Park opens two and a half hours early, and although the games will have sellout crowds of 45,000, the Phillies are going to be playing the Braves. Chances are, there won’t be many fans there wearing Braves gear — but those games are on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you were in my position, where would you rather go? Tampa or Philadelphia? I’m not afraid of getting shut out in either city, nor do I expect to hit double digits. I just want to have a fun and relaxing time with my clients.
Not an easy choice.
Speaking of the Phillies, it looks like I might be seeing them in Philadelphia on May 14th and in Los Angeles on July 16th and 17th. (One of the games in L.A. will also be a Watch With Zack affair.) Keep in mind that none of this confirmed, so don’t yell at me if the dates change.
