Brooklyn Bolts Home Opener


The home opener for the  Brooklyn Bolts (October 2nd)  was a cold, windy and miserable day.  When I say Miserable I really do mean miserable. The rain was non stop the whole day. Wind was going in every direction.  But you know how we do. Left foot right foot your body will follow.  The tickets were bought  weeks ago.

One of my friends was waiting for me at the bar to per game or so I thought. It turned out that he was passed out at home sleeping. He may have been the wiser of the two of us.  I did the only thing that you could do in a bar before a game. I pre gamed like a champ till the idea of going out in the rain for a Bolts football game  did not sound so bad or idiotic . For your reference the count was 5 beers and 3 shots in one hour.  Long story short I get to MCU park where they Brooklyn bolts play via train because there are not cars anywhere in Brooklyn that can be hired. Fuck you rain.

The game well what can I say, they sucked the wind was gusting at round 30 miles an hour. Who ever was the genius that thought it was a good idea for the Bolts to play in that weather should be fired. Just saying , what do i know? Back to the game. Beers were 10  bucks a pop and as for the food it was either closed or looked like shit.

Fat guys total time at the stadium was 20 Minutes.  Yup all that work and time wasted in travel for me to stay for only one beer. AGAIN the weather sucked ass. The wind was from the north and right into our backs. A MISERABLE TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.


The only saving grace for the day was stopping by  Nathans for some chili dogs and fried clams with fries. Clams were okay…… What do you want me to say they were deep fried to the point they tasted just like the fries. The CHILI DOGS WERE ON POINT.  Fat GUY approved to say the least.


Brooklyn Bolts Home Opener  was what it was a experience.   Good bad and indifferent  all at the same time but a experience for sure.
