    On the general topic of food, and on the specific topic of ball park food, my friend’s wife writes a blog about kids and food.  This week she got a-behind-the-scenes tour of Dodger Stadium and what else you can eat there in addition to Dodger Dogs and nachos.  I was surprised myself at what she found, plus she got an interview with Andre Ethier.

    Maybe Robert Creamer should have a root beer named after him.

    @Jason Root beer actually tends to have more sugar than comparable sodas. Not sure why, but just tosay that 41g isn’t an anomaly.

    I really am looking forward to reading these, Jon. I did this exact thing at Cost Plus World Market last winter but never wrote down my impressions and forgot most of them. Except that stevia-sweetened root beer…isn’t.
