I didn't actually live in Minnesota at the time the popcorn was supplied, but I loved it there. I lived a state away in Wisconsin. Every now and then I would make the trip over.
My favorite trip was when the Twins played the New York Yankees. I had been a Yankee's fan for nearly all my life so this game was quite special to me. I drove over with a few friends that weekend. We took the popcorn delivery truck that weekend. I figured I'd knock out two birds with one stone. It was all planned perfectly.
We made to the Historic District of Minneapolis without a problem. We parked the truck in the loading dock and basically got to watch the game for free. Just one of the perks of being part of the popcorn crew. We unloaded all of the popcorn and then grabbed a couple of beers before the game started. We were having a blast.
After a couple of beers we started to look for our seats. On the way to our section we ran into the owner of Target Field. He was there for the park's anniversary. He loved popcorn.
So I told him that my company provided the popcorn. He was so excited and offered us a spot in a suite box up top.
