Beetz and I will be celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary this Tuesday, July 26. That also happens to be the day that we will be leaving for our week long vacation, hindering our ability to celebrate the occasion. So in an attempt to mark the occasion (and, let's face it, to have fun and be treated like a VIP!) I managed to score two tickets to the Champion's Club at Target field.
The Champion's Club is an elite section of seating at Target field that is not available for single game purchase. The only way to sit in the Champion's Club is to buy an entire season package of seats, or to know someone who has. Needless to say, my road to the Champion's Club was through the latter.
My cousin Kirk has a couple sections of seats in the Champion's Club, so a couple months ago I gave him a call and asked if he could hook me up. Much to my surprise and delight, he was able to do so, and at a huge discount from face value, for which I am eternally grateful.
Bottom line: the Champion's Club was a great experience. The food was amazing, the service was second to none (and it was really cool having my car parked by the valet, even if it was a piece of junk compared to the Ferraris and Porches parked nearby), the seats were great (closer than I think I've ever been to the players before), and it was a great time.
