Why not give stuff to every fan that attends? Instead of the first 10,000 fans that enter the stadium.


I bet more people would be willing to purchase last minute walk up tickets from the box office if they did that

It sure does seem strange, except for many use the items as free eBay material...

They want the fans down there as early as possible. That way they buy more food, merchandise, etc. If the fans wait until the last minute to go to the game, there's no benefit to Mr. Illitch.

I eat and drink before and or after games!

The food is overpriced and not very good!


Except for the Big Boy chicken tenders and fries and the nachos in the food court with the sour cream and hamburger meat.

lol, its not the greatest being a teen, i mean sure were more active, well, some of us, but we have curfews, and we cant just buy a ticket to a baseball game and go, and we cant really make much money cuz nobody wants to hire teens to get a job, ive been job hunting since october and i still havent found one, and we cant legally drink, but i can honestly say i have never been drunk, only a few sips here and there, and all that other stuff

The Economy Sucks!


They had an article about the difficulty teens will have getting jobs!

Employers are bitching about a 30 cent minimum wage increase

Give me a break!



GAS is 3;40 a gallon! Do they expect teens to work for 5 bucks an hour?

Darn you GS, now you made me hungry and all our Big Boy's are closed!

We had like 10 within a 10 minute drive "Elby's Big Boys" but they are all closed now. (Most people don't know that these were all owned by different mob families in the past.)

I looked at Wiki and they said this about Ohio and WV ones in my area:

Quote :
Elby's (West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio) owned the Big Boy
rights to northern West Virginia, originally through Shoney's and
quickly expanded Big Boy into bordering Ohio counties, subfranchised
through Frisch's, and later expanded through Pennsylvania. A trademark
battle with Frisch's over Ohio operations caused Elby's to drop Big Boy
affiliation, to be followed by Shoney's et al.

Part of the family wars???

Detroit area info:
Quote :
Elias Brothers (Michigan, Northeastern Ohio, Ontario, Canada)


Also:
Quote :
Big Boy is a restaurant chain started in 1936 by Bob Wian in Glendale, California as Bob's Big Boy. Marriott bought the chain in 1967. One of the larger franchise operators, Elias Brothers, purchased the chain from Marriott, in 1987, moving the headquarters of the company to Warren, Michigan, and operating it until declaring bankruptcy, in 2000. Following the bankruptcy, the chain was sold to investor, Robert Liggett Jr., the current company CEO, who renamed the company Big Boy Restaurants International, and kept the headquarters in Warren. The company is the franchiser for more than 455 Big Boy Restaurants in the United States and Canada.
