Just not pretty.
A turnoff if Our Washington Nationals are seriously considering the Osceola County Stadium Complex for spring training in the future. No question, Disney World and Universal Studios are close, shopping opportunities available to no end. But that's not enough, because The Osceola County Stadium complex didn't look as fan friendly as Nationals fans have come to appreciate in Viera since 2005.
On another note--this conversation actually took place while on the grounds. Looking to pick up some information about the Osceola County Stadium, I walked to the ticket office and got involved in the following conversation:
Two guys from New York wearing Yankees gear were questioning The Astros Ticket Agent about why there was not a game today at the ballpark? The lady behind the window stated there was no game in Kissimmee as The Astros were playing The Atlanta Braves at the Disney World Sports Complex. But these guys insisted they had purchased two tickets to see The New York Yankees play The Atlanta Braves today. That's right, The Yankees against The Braves.
Ticket Lady: "Why would the Yankees and Braves play here?"
New York Guys: "We are not from here, but that's what it says on our home printed tickets."--as they palm the copy onto the window for the Ticket Agent to look at--"Our GPS told us to come here!!"
Ticket Lady: "I am not responsible for your GPS or your online purchase. You need to take that up with whomever you bought the tickets from."
New York Guys: "Well, were do The Braves play?"
Ticket Lady: "Wide World Of Sports at Disney World."
New York Guys: "Where's that?"
Ticket Lady: "Never been there."
So I chime in:
SBF: "Guys--just go west here on 192 and take the Downtown Disney exit and follow the signs to the Sports Complex at Disney World--it's not too hard."
New York Guys: Well are The Yankees playing The Braves there?
SBF: "The schedule right here says The Astros are playing The Braves there today and then again here tomorrow."
New York Guys: "But what about The Yankees?"
SBF: "I have no idea."
New York Guys: "OK, thanks we'll go over there and try to figure it out."
As they walk away, this retired guy standing in line watching this conversation play out:
"What in the world were those guys smoking!!"
Everybody busts out laughing.
Ticket Lady: "There was nothing else I could tell them."
