Yet Another Feed Update

Dave · July 11, 2005 at 11:13 am · Filed Under Mariners 

After previously announcing the Feed as being full, we’ve had a rash of cancellations this morning. So, for those interested in attending, we have eight remaining spots for Saturday’s game.

The event includes a two hour pregame meeting in the Ellis Pavillion at Safeco Field, hosted by BP author Jonah Keri, Derek, Jeff, and myself. We’ve got a couple of guest speakers who will be attending as well, and, let me just say, you don’t want to miss it. You’ll find out why on Saturday. After the meeting, where we’ll be providing light refreshments, we all march up to section 326 and watch the game together. And, it looks like there’s a pretty good shot we’ll be applauding Rafael Palmeiro’s 3,000th career hit, 2,184 of which came against the Mariners. Also, as a bonus, all attendees get a complimentary one month subscription to (if you’re already subscriber, it gets extended by a month).

So, for $35, you get one of the most unique baseball experiences you can find. You really don’t want to miss out. We’d like to get these last few spots filled sooner rather than later, so email us to RSVP for the outing. Make sure to include your name, as well as the name of anyone you are bringing with you, and we’ll send you payment information and further details.

    Sorry to cancel at the last moment. I wouldn’t know if I could make it until the last moment (literally I’d decide about noon on Saturday and drive over from Spokane). I didn’t want to tie up a spot for someone who really could go.

    Should be a great time.

    No worries Russ. We appreciate you giving us the heads up rather than no-showing.

    For those who are interested in hitching a ride, I’ll be driving over from Spokane friday night. Email me – evbuyarski at hotmail.

    Just sent in money now- had to take care of childcare. My seven year old daughter enjoys M’s games, but would have been bored out of her mind by the pre-function.

    Anyway, I’ll be over at Salute on First Avenue at 4 o’clock or so, drinking a pint or three of inexpensive and delicious Stella Artois, if anyone cares to join me.

    Boone story’s posted elsewhere.

    This sounds interesting, but at the same time a little too expensive for a Mariners game at this time.

  8. Dave on July 11th, 2005 12:48 pm

    We realize $35 isn’t pocket change, but this is a non-profit event. I’m paying $35 to go, so is Derek, Jonah, and Jeff. We’re putting this event on for what it costs and not a dime more. Toss in the free BP subscription and this is actually a heck of a deal.

    I’d be shocked if Rafael Palmeiro doesn’t get his 3,000th hit by Saturday. He’s only 2 away from 3,000, so I think he’ll get it on Thursday or Friday. We’ll see.

    To the dismay of no one, I’m not going.

  10. Russ on July 11th, 2005 1:52 pm

    $35 is cheap, cheap and cheap. I’d pay the $35 just for the chance to go but left it open so others could go.

    I volunteered to officiate the State TT Chamipionships here in Spokane that weekend. I’d most likely be done by noon for a quick ground flight to arrive at Safeco in time. Foolishly, I also volunteered to officate another bike race the following morning back in Spokane. That would be a non-stop weekend in the car.

    I’m still tempted to go. If a slot stays open, let me know and I’ll make it work. I’d hate to see any seats go to waste.

    If you can, send us a cell # that we can reach you at on Saturday. If we have any open spots as of Saturday morning, we’ll call you and let you decide then.

    I will be there, and with a little luck, perhaps $10K richer.

    I am the Mariners “Play at the Plate” contestant on Friday. If I throw a ball from short center field through a small (I was told 15″x18″) horseshoe-shaped target at home plate (couple bounces and rolling through OK, and probably the smart play), I am a winner . . . and will be buying the first round of beer (at least) at the Feed. Only if I win though — can’t get too carried away.

  13. Dave on July 11th, 2005 5:33 pm

    Pete, if you win, you’re paying for the whole freaking thing.

  14. Kevin Wright on July 11th, 2005 8:48 pm

    I sent payment but never heard back, and paypal says my payment is unclaimed.

  15. Jonah Keri on July 12th, 2005 10:50 am

    Kevin’s been taken care of.

    We do still still have about 5-6 openings, due to cancellations. Trust Dave when he says you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the guest(s) involved. Highly recommend y’all sign up if you haven’t already —

    I’d love to attend, but my 4-and-1/2-year-old son would need to come along — would that be a terrible idea? (If I’d be allowed to take a DVD player into Safeco, that would keep him occupied during the pre-game….)

  17. JPWood on July 13th, 2005 2:59 am

    You’re probably full by now, but Jeff Angus just gave the feed a plug in his STimes Stat column:
    Does that mean he’ll be attending as well?

  18. Bela Txadux on July 13th, 2005 3:00 am

    I’d love to go, but I’m due at work that night at 1900 hrs, and since I’m just back from a vacation I had to go to the mat to get I’m not getting the day off. Great idea, just a bad day for me.

  19. Jonah Keri on July 13th, 2005 10:20 am

    Nope, not full yet, still a few spots left open. Jeff is going to try to make it, but he’s questionable at the moment.

    If you want in, RSVP and we’ll send you the details.
