Check Out the Food Prices @ Augusta National

The practice rounds at Augusta National are underway! Yes, that time of year has arrived. The Masters Tournament at Augusta National in Georgia. Now, you would expect that for an event like The Masters that food and drinks would be GROSSLY overpriced, but the truth is actually contrary to that! In fact, the prices are INCREDIBLE!

Auto Awesome Western Wall

Funny that when I was in Israel last year, Google’s ‘Auto Awesome’ feature would do weird things like put snow flakes onto pictures of the Tel Aviv beach, but now a year later is actually pulling the pics I took and making them ACTUALLY AWESOME.  Check out this black and white treatment it gave a pic I took of the Western Wall last February.

Last Monday > This Monday

Last week Monday was greater than today in terms of Mondays…

Why???

Well….

Last Monday:

Monday Morning: February 10th, 2014

Monday Morning in Tel Aviv, Israel: February 10th, 2014

 This Morning:

Morning in Fitchburg, Wisconsin: February 17, 2014

Morning in Fitchburg, Wisconsin: February 17, 2014

So I think it is pretty obvious why Last Monday > This Monday.

Any Questions?

Upgraded at Target Field

Yesterday my wife and I went to a Twins game at Target Field in Minneapolis.  We bought the cheap seats as usual, but then I discovered that using the At the Ballpark app on my phone can allow me to upgrade my seats for a little bit of money.  I logged in, put in my ticket seat info, and then it offered me an upgrade from my Section 307 seats (which were $11 seats) to Section 107 for just $9 dollars more per seat!

Here is how that offer turned out:

Here is a panoramic pic… Why the hell not, eh?!?

This is the closest I have sat to the field at an MLB game since my first Wrigley Field experience back in 2000

Pretty sweet, huh…  $60 seats for basically $20 each
