I noticed that a couple weeks ago. Pretty cool.

The new playoff commercial is out. No idea why its full of Cubs

Of course the fruit (like every other consumable at the Stadium) cost an arm and a leg. When I first went to the Stadium, I saw this. I was about to buy a banana until I realized it cost almost $2.

Btw, the water fountain near my section already is broken. Fortunately, a bottle water only costs $4.

I hope they've properly trained the security staff at the Stadium ...

That was supposed to be in my write up of the first exhibition game against the Cubs per my wife's orders (she's a fruit fanatic and was beside herself about the fruit stand), but I forgot amid all the other details I was trying to capture. Better late than never!

The fruit stand is just down the hall from the sushi stand in the food court. You can grab a healthy meal of a Bronx Roll and some fruit for desert with 1/3 the calories of a bucket of popcorn..

The large bucket of popcorn has about 2500 calories!!! Wow!

For those looking for it, it's just inside Gate 4 in the hall on the right that leads to the Great Hall. Or, from the Great Hall, it's on the right of the stairs leading up to the *cough* martini bar.

or at least it was in April . . .

The fruit stand was the first thing that I really took notice of my one time at the Stadium ... I walked in, saw the fruit stand, and said to myself, "Hey!"
