Anyway, congrats on Louisville, I have lived there on three separate occasions. It's a great town, Lot's to do. Make sure you check out the Slugger museum and IMAX theater downtown. tons of good places to eat. If your a pizza fan, check out the Clifton Pizza company on frankfort road.
The ONLY time that I have been rude to an employee of a Baseball team besides you know who
:, is to an usher in Louisville. I had credentials, appropriately displayed, the whole nine yards. I also had tickets in my pocket and displayed those as well. Some teams give you tickets, some just point you in the direction where to sit. I was double covered in Louisville. The usher looked at them every single time I made a move. (I don't always sit in the same seat but it wasn't like I was moving entire sections)
I took a bathroom break around the 6th or 7th inning and upon returning the same usher acted like he had never seen me before in his life. I actually knew his name at this point we had interracted so many times. Other credentialed personnel were having the same issue. There is usually an area of about 6 rows that reserved seats are given to working credntialed personnel. We move around from time to time.
Finally, upon coming back from the bathroom I confronted the guy and basically told him to stop bothering me before I made an official complaint. He stood at the bottom of my row for the remainder of the game and stared at myself and other credentialed personnel.
Having said all this, there are no ushers WORSE than in Wrigley. Never in my life have I witnessed anything like their behavior.
