No, not the crack bored picnic, the Expedia company picnic at Safeco Field. I went today. What a waste of time. Even worse than I expected. I normally hate picnics, but this didn't even qualify as a picnic. We had catered "ballpark food" that wasn't even done by the Safeco Field staff. I got food poisoning. One hot dog and 15 minutes later I was running for the green stalls of the men's room.

I arrived around 4:50. Apparently, I missed all but one of the "backstage" tours, which ran every 15 minutes until 4:45. Then they stopped until 6:30. I didn't want to wait that long, so I bailed.

I did get to walk around on the warning track (they didn't let us onto the grass), the dugout, and the bullpen. So it wasn't a complete bust. But almost. I did reach through the ropes and feel the field grass though. I was expecting it to be longer. Maybe an inch long. Perfectly manicured, like a putting green. No weeds. Not used to seeing that in such a large expanse of lawn.
