From this angle, the Coke bottle really does look menacing.

MoMos is packed on game days. It won the game of location location location.

This is the "big moment" for fans. The moment just before you enter the field for the first time.

Nothing is cheap at AT&T. This little soda cost $6.50. The only bargain is the sunscreen packets for $2.

Throwing away a piece of trash takes a lot of thought at AT&T. Which can is the right can?

They brought the team out in a very dramatic way this year. It was right out of "Field of Dreams". They surprised the crowd and entered through the outfield in a cloud of smoke and fireworks.

Jerry Rice and Steve Young threw out and caught the first pitch. Young told Rice to "go long" after catching it at home plate throwing a bullet back to Rice who made it to second in time for a perfect catch.

AT&T Park has Doggie Diner kiosks that put the phrase "ball park franks" to shame. They are by far the best sheboygan's I've ever tasted.

Thanks to the come back win in extra innings, Tony Bennett's "I left my heart in San Francisco" filled the stadium during the happy exit.

Even though Opening Day went 13 innings, people did not want to go home right away. That might be in part because they hadn't had a beer since the 7th inning stretch of course.
