Play Food!

I'm going to baseball with the Sherbs this weekend. Metropolitans/Nationals, or Mets/Nats. It gives us both a mediocre team to root for.

Anyway, we're already looking forward to the baseball park food. The Sherbs was worried that there might not be something for her, but I think there is, according to the Mets website (my favs highlighted):
There is a wide variety of food and beverages at concession stands throughout the stadium. This includes New York style Sicilian pizza available on all levels, as well as onion rings and ice cream desserts; Nathan's Famous hot dogs and fries; and Daruma of Tokyo behind home plate on the Field Level.

Hot Corner
Features the newly renovated Mama's of Corona, which offers a menu of gourmet sandwiches, fresh garden salads, antipasto and Italian pastries. Mama's is located on the third base side on the Field Level.

Family Food Court
Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins offer coffee, hot latte, and ice cream treats. Subway sandwich shop has heroes made fresh to order. B&B Sandwich offers a delicious Philly Cheesesteak style sandwich on a Kaiser roll. Kosher offerings include hot dogs and non-dairy delights. The Family Food court is located in the right field corner on the Field Level.
Note also the kosher alternatives. I NY.

I have some problems with this post, Pedant:

1) It gives us both a mediocre team to root for. Aren't you not supposed to end a sentance with a preposition?

2) I don't think anyone ever calls them the "Metropolitans." I didn't even know who you were talking about at first. But that's because I'm a mediocre fan of a mediocre team.

3) I was never really worried about eating. I just didn't feel like being relagated to only fried, fried, fried foods and nachos. But thanks for clearing it up.

4) I wonder if you can buy the kosher alternatives on the Sabbath. Probably, and that's why I ♥ NY.

I will respond only to the first point -

"Contrary to popular opinion, no rule states that it is incorrect to end a sentence with a preposition. A principle of style, however, declares that one should not end a sentence with a preposition when one has a graceful alternative."

"Do you really want to be so 'correct' as to complain, 'That is the sort of thing up with which I will not put!' (Winston Churchill once used a similar remark to mock someone who had criticized him for ending a sentence with a preposition.)"

"Whatever the merit of the rule — and both historically and logically, there's not much — there's a substantial body of opinion against end-of-sentence prepositions . . . you don't deserve your writing license if you elevate this rough guideline into a superstition. Don't let it make your writing clumsy or obscure; if a sentence is more graceful with a final preposition, let it stand."

Does Yankee stadium have a kosher hotdog stand, or just the mets? I want a ksoher hotdog.

You the kosh stand at Shea Stadium is NOT open on shabbat.
