Our Last Game of 2018

Saturday, the Mariners hosted their annual “Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Day.”  The only reason we know this is because the Webmaster bought tickets off a former co-worker… and they were season tickets.  (We think he got them from his current place of employment and then couldn’t use them.)

Suddenly, the Webmaster and I are DEEPLY interested in becoming season ticket holders, because… dang.  They do treat you right.

Not that we would get THESE seats, but still.

When we entered the park, we were handed scratch tickets for a free concession item and a discount of some kind at the team store.  AND we also got complimentary drink cups that were for free soda and refills.  As a result, we only bought burgers for ourselves, because we won garlic fries and ice cream from the tickets.  We also went shopping at the team store (along with EVERY OTHER PERSON IN THE PARK, but there were good deals….), and just really enjoyed our evening of pretending to be season ticket holders.

We also got to enter in time to watch the Mariners take batting practice.  That also meant watching the autograph hounds go bananas, and while that’s not our thing, it was cool to see the players interact with the fans.

Now, this was appreciation day, so all the freebies were just on that day.  Still, it was pretty fun!

Maybe we should just succumb to the inevitable and tell the kids that this is the entertainment budget from now on.

Hmmmm….
