Take a Hike

Kottke points us to some math, via Phil Mushnick.

Bottom line: it's cheaper to fly to Seattle, rent a car, watch the Yanks lose at Safeco, enjoy some tasty Pacific Northwest grub, and live the high life in a four star hotel than to go to a game at YS2.5.  Click through either link for the math.

hahahah. And, while you’re there, you’re probably free to run to the fences with your kids to get some autographs without someone making some “people in your house” stupid comment about you.

And if you ever plan to do a Seattle trip for a game and want a few tips about what I’ve learned about what works and what doesn’t, shoot me a line.
SafeCo is a great place to catch a game.

I can vouch for that as well – having lived there and caught many games at SafeCo. Mostly sox games, which was usually a losing affair for the visiting team.
Pyramid ale house, ichi rolls, red hook, summer in the PNW… nice!
