Minutemaid Park Is No Dodger Stadium

A work trip brought me to Houston (for Wrestlemania of all things) and I used a little free time to squeeze in a quick trip to Minutemaid Park, which is conveniently locate two blocks from my hotel. Plus it allows me to check another stadium off my list.

Right now the ‘stros are leading the Indians 1-0 in the top of the second inning. This place is a classic cookie cutter retro-designed place (think Camden Yards). While nice, clean and modern, it lacks a soul. Plus their hot dogs suck. One odd condiment fact: the ketchup and mustard come in packets while the onions and relish are applied with a spoon. WTF? Shouldn’t this be the other way around? Last I checked ketchup and mustard were way more popular that relish and onions, but I am in Texas.

In any case, just a few days until Opening Day!


  1. I realize it’s a preseason game but look how empty that stadium is…not a good sign of things to come.
