The other night I was wandering around the ballpark when I see a familiar face. I think to myself, certainly that’s not him… What would he being doing in Kansas City… And although his hair stylings are pretty recognizable, I decide to continue on my path and assume it is not he whom I think it might be.
Later in the evening though, I see him again and I figure… Ah, what the heck.
“Richard Blais?” say I.
“Ya buddy, what’s goin’ on?” says Richard Blais.
Now for those of you who might not know, Richard Blais was a finalist on the hit Bravo TV show TOP CHEF. I, being a lover of the food, must at this point also admit to watching an episode or two…or 20.
I must also admit that I had some pretty serious hair envy. I mean look at that thing!
Anyhow, Richard informs me that he was at the game that evening making “Liquid Nitrogen Blue Popcorn Balls” for a Demo in the Outfield Experience.
Of course he was.
So can we expect to see those puppies coming to a concession stand at the ballpark soon? I’m guessing probably not, but speaking of concessions at The K (and in keeping with our food-themed blog entry), I highly recommend the BBQ Burnt End Sandwich for the next time you are trying to satisfy your hunger out at the game. It was very good… It even had pickles on it… And it was only six bucks.
Now if we can only convince them to put Liquid Nitrogen BLUE pickles on there, maybe we could land a spot on TOP CHEF.
Although I’m guessing blue pickles won’t have that same nifty appeal as blue popcorn. In fact, blue pickles sound kinda gross.
Alright, scrap that idea until my pal Richard Blais can find a way to make it work.
