Montgomery Biscuits

29 May

Sounds kind of funny, huh?  I am visiting Big Brother in Montgomery and last night he treated me to a minor league baseball game.  Being from the “big city” I pictured us sitting outside in a hot, dusty field.   Boy, was Living Dilbert wrong.  In a nutshell – it was the best game I’ve ever been to.   Beautiful stadium, incredibly clean and amazing food vendors…who were actually NICE!   I’m not used to that in Big City.   You are lucky if you get a grunt in response to a food order at a game, much less any eye contact or a kind word.  The vendors were not only nice, they smiled and spoke to you!  True to the team name, you could even get biscuits and gravy for dinner if you wanted…not just the standard hotdog stuff!   The boiled peanuts were to die for….huge, perfect consistency paired with a deliciously salty seasoning.  It made thoughts of Bad Boss drift far away…that and the $2.00 (very cold) beer!  

If you are ever in the Montgomery, AL area…treat yourself to a Biscuits game.  It was the perfect start of a long, holiday weekend.  There is a lot to enjoy in life…and where you least expect it.

Tomorrow – Happy Days

    Minor league baseball is inexpensive, fun and the players are very approachable.

    Can’t agree more. We live in the DFW area and have found that the Minor League Frisco Roughriders games here are much cheaper, much more fan friendly, you can actually meet and talk to the players, there is not a bad seat in the house, parking is free, food is inexpensive, you can sit out on the grass if you want, etc……. A much better experience than going to a Rangers game. My son and I take Baseball road trips each summer, we will add the Biscuits onto our list of places to visit.

    Mood-Indicator picture made me burst out laughing…

    Sounds like an amazing time! I love it that the beer was cold – that’s surprising for ANY sort of event!

    I’m guessing there’s more to boiling peanuts than just boiling them and adding salt. I will definitely give it a try should I ever encounter them. Enjoy your time away from BB! 🙂

    PC strikes again! The Montgomery Rebels were the home team for years and years, playing across from the big stadium (at the time) Crampton Bowl. Ahhhh. Those were the days. (40 yrs ago)
