  1. Love the story on all you can eat seats. Of course the article is written about San Diego. San Diego is so horrible they have to try anything to get fans to the game! Not only do people not go to the games, we don't even check the score to see if they won. So all you can eat is a good way to get people to the game in San Diego. San Diego is the farm team for MLB. Hope the new owners have some cash to spend instead of thinking up buffet night at the game!
