One of the things we really wanted to do in USA was to watch a baseball game. We managed to get quite cheap tickets for a game between the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Pirates, and for the full complete baseball experience, we wanted to eat hot dogs and, well, basically, junk food at the stadium while watching the game.
There are many stalls selling food at the METs stadium. Lots of hot dog stands, lots of drinks and sweets stalls, lots of fast food stalls, and you wonder why these people are so fat. Well, another reason could also be that one of their favourite sports is baseball, which is one of the most lazy, boring sports ever to be played, but that’s another rant altogether.
Back to the food. We bought a selection of junk food – some chicken tenders, crinkle fries and a cheeseburger. To sum it up, everything was appalling. The cheeseburger was dry, the fries were soggy and terrible, and the chicken tenders were a complete joke – tender was definitely the last word on my mind when I bit into them. But then again, we didn’t exactly expect to have gourmet food at a ball game did we? We wanted a true blue American experience at the ball game, and we got just that. Having said that, we did have a lot of fun watching the baseball game, but going once is probably more than enough.
