Ashamed to eat sushi at the park? I guess not. Afraid of any sushi being served? Probably.
I think I had some at Shea (1998?). Maybe we had some on the west coast in 2002.(As long as they stick an Asian person behind the counter, you figure it's alright. But if the sushi wagon was run by Cousin Brewski or one of the clearly-stoned, dead-eyed employees who usually sell hot dogs, well, you'd never consider it.)
Come to find out, I've been a troll on JOS all this time because it was just a short one-stop step for me to find myself in the Bronx, a fan of the MFY. So long, everyone, I'll have to find another blog to follow.
I don't think I have a soul, either, but I expanded the meaning of the question, so it asked: "Do you any kindness or goodness in you at all, even a drip from an eye-dropper worth?"
lol, very nice. i think i follow the same path as you, but the sushi question is definitely the turning point in this whole thing.meh, i'm sure i'll figure it out in 20 years.
The best part is definitely the first question.
That first question is GOLD. Beautiful!
With that expanded definition of soul, I finally found myself on Lansdowne St. but I skipped the chowda, grabbed an Italian sausage with extra peppas, and headed for my favorite seat behind the visitors' dugout. Thanks for handing me that eyedropper and getting me out of the MFBronx, allan.

It stays refrigerated.We had sushi at Dodgers Stadium in 2002. It wasn't even the fast-food kind, it was real sushi.
This is great, btw. You should send to Alan With One L. He is opposed to non-traditional (i.e. good) food being served at ballparks.
Thanks to Benjamin's interpretation of the sushi question, I found myself right at Fenway. I would never eat sushi at a baseball park. In fact, I don't eat anything at a baseball park other than beer and ice cream and maybe packaged candy or popcorn. I just don't eat real food at a baseball game. I used to bring in a sandwich, but now that they don't allow that "for security reasons," I just eat before or after the game.So, yeah, I am a Red Sox fan. No surprise!
I should also admit that I don't eat the chowda either, but since I don't even know what hot dish is, I knew which direction to turn!
I found that if you go to enough baseball games, real food is very welcome. A couple of times a year is one thing, but if you're talking 10, 15, 20 games a season, real food starts looking pretty good!
For me, there is no "real food" at a baseball park! I am a finicky eater on top of all my other dietary restrictions. It's not just that I don't trust their cooking---I just don't eat anything they serve at most ball parks except maybe the (non-pepperoni) pizza, and it looks disgusting. True, I don't go to more than a few games a season, if I am lucky, but even if I went to 20, I'd do nothing but snack at the park.I know arena food has improved, but I have yet to see anything that tempts me.
it looks disgustingAt Fenway, I agree. No real food, nothing worth eating.In Toronto, slightly better, but only slightly.In Seattle, San Francisco, many other places - very different. :) Although I am easy about food.I hear the Mets' new park has good food - including a Danny Meyers Shake Shack! (Paging Ish...)
At Fenway, I agree. No real food, nothing worth eating.They have added a bunch of places down behind right field that I don't think we ever walked over to. I'll bet it is at least as good, probably better, than what Skydome offers.
Looking at the chart, and wondering what the real possibilities are:If I was a wiseass and said I need baseball to distract me from my shitty life, I would root for the Mets. (Which seems like it would only add to the shittyness, actually.)I am not afraid of large crowds, but they can annoy me when I am stuck in one, so then I have a choice between the Marlins and Rays. (This makes no sense, but they had to find a spot for every team.)If sushi is for losers and meat > chowda and I really want a foul ball and I don't like cops, I guess I can finagle my way to the Cubs.
I'll bet it is at least as good, probably better, than what Skydome offers.It wouldn't take much.
