If you’re an avid listener of the show, it’s no secret to you that, despite now living in Loon’s country, I’m a die-hard West Michigan Whitecaps fan! Since I was 5, I’ve watched numerous future Tigers start their professional careers at 5/3 (Old Kent) Ballpark. I’ve also seen the park devise many (mostly successful) marketing strategies to get butts in seats.
Few caught on like the 5/3 Burger that debuted on Opening Day 2009. While I never had the stones to try this burger (Come on it’s huge! And there are only like 50 things on it that I would never eat!), I watched the first few people complete the challenge. Hell…I don’t even remember what happened on the field that night! My ‘Caps may have outdone themselves this time, however. For opening day 2013, fans voted in the latest culinary creation to grace the Midwest League…the Baco Taco. From the inside, everything looks pretty normal: Cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and guac, if you please. However, the weaved bacon shell might raise your eyebrows (or maybe your cholesterol)!
Terrifying? Absolutely. But this also has the potential to be the greatest thing ever! Ever since working for 5/3 Ballpark back in ’06, I’ve sworn off stadium food (not scared of germs, it’s about taste), but when I go to opening weekend in April, this might just be on my menu. And look at the bright side…there’s finally a good option for low-carb dieters at the ballpark!
Who’s trying the Baco Taco with me???
Most parent’s probably have never “googled” their child’s name . By kids..meaning ages 13-18 in this matter, they have a bad habit of posting pictures and videos on every social media website that exists. No matter if it is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or even Youtube everything that your child uploads on the internet will remain there forever.
This in fact..hold on spoiler alert! can damage the teens opportunity to get a potential job after high school or while in high school and can even result and the teen getting denied to colleges. Many Universities check social media sites to screen who they are letting into their program. If the person is uploading whatever they feel after high school while they are an adult in college this could ruin the chances of them getting their dream job.
To get to the point, parent’s take time to actually see what your kids are up to. Sit down with them and let them know they have a future ahead of them so don’t let a few pictures and videos ruin they’re future.
