Auto Focus Redux

By Wyatt Earp | September 30, 2005

As I mentioned on Wednesday, Bill and I were invited to a focus group discussion for the Camden Riversharks baseball team. Our names were picked at random from a pool of season ticket holders, and we were to be at Campbell’s Field Wednesday night.

When we arrived we were escorted to one of the executive suites atop the stadium by an intern (read: hottie). The moderator of the discussion (a blow-dried pretty boy who is a professor at the University of Delaware) welcomed us, and informed everyone that the event would be videotaped for Riversharks management. Bill, being a wiseass, told me that the camera adds ten pounds, but in my case, there must be three or four of them in the room. Nice guy.

After everyone is settled, the moderator asks us a few questions dealing with the team in general, and more specifically, what we would like to see from them in the future. Bill brought up the declining quality of the food (as I knew he would), and that was a hot-button issue with the room. I mentioned that the scoreboard is not utilized enough, and it wouldn’t kill them to show the out-of-town scores. All in all, it was pretty productive. If nothing else, the Sharks management definitely cares about its fans – or we wouldn’t be there to begin with.

When the meeting concluded, the moderator gave us our “gifts” for our attendance. I’m thinking tote bags or something equally useless. What we got was incredible:

Every person in attendance received a coupon for the use of a luxury box suite for a game next season!

The suites usually run about $550, and are air-conditioned with food service. A suite can accommodate 25 people comfortably. We were shocked (and honored) beyond belief!

Long story short (I know, too late), I need to find 24 friends to go to a game next season in a luxury box suite. Let the butt-kissing begin!!!

    Hmm… I’d justify a lil ‘business’ trip to Philly (my market at work anyhow) just to hang in a lux suite! Count me in! You know you’d love a loud mouth irish yankee in the box with ya! Only as long as Guinness is on tap!

    I would go only for the beer but I prefer pilsner if your buying.

    Hell, I’d drink pilsner to hang in a lux box! That has a little alcohol in it doesn’t it?

    I bet we could just get our own keg in the box and rock it that way.

    Sounds good to me.

    Dang, even I could cope with watching baseball from a box (especially one with lotsa beer, any kind of beer)! Trouble is that Philly’s at the wrong end of PA for me. Phooey.
