I used to think it was sacrelige, having first gone there as a small boy, but have come around to your way of thinking as a grown man.
It really is built for the 1912 person (think smaller and less likely to be overweight). It's a lot of money to pay for a bad back and stiff neck for a week. If you're a small person or get some of the few seats with a reasonable amount of legroom, then it's no problem. For most, it's a problem. Fortunately, for Sox ownership, people keep buying the tickets. Then the Sox have a side-company that legally scalps its own tickets, which through a loophole in the revenue sharing rules doesn't go into revenue sharing.
You get spoiled going to games at Coors Field. Plenty of room and great concourse views when you walk around. It's too bad the Rockies have been awful this year.
