Shot from up inside the press box : )
I got paid $200 to hand promo cards to the talents while they were calling baseball.
what an interesting day cuz I had to sit there, half asleep handing out cards during commercial breaks, and all the time resisting the insane amounts of free soda around me. Every single room up in the press boxes has a giant fridge full of free coca-cola and pepsi. Every variety in existence.
I picked a hell of a goddamn time to give up sugar D':
Still fun day though : ) I met a lot of interesting people. Some guys from MLB that run instant replay and they told me during spring training they rotate umpires in and out to teach them how to run instant replay. They're on intercom with the umpires out in the field. Another guy had been all over the world doing productions and editing .w.;
One of the talents (the guys who talk the play by play and color commentary on air) had a tub of tobacco hidden down in his socks by his ankle. I almost didn't notice him slip it out, pop a piece in his mouth and then slide it back in his sock. He later grabbed a cup from the water machine to spit in. Kinda gross, but a little hilarious at the same time. They don't allow smoking or chewing up in the press boxes anymore for obvious reasons.
...ended up being a really long day. Got there at 8:30am. Left at 4:30pm, arrived at the deli at 5pm and went straight to work till 11:30pm x__x; thank eff im off tomorrow <3
