This is probably not the type of press the 14-33 Houston Astros are looking to draw. Earlier this week, a fan at Minute Maid Park filmed video with a vendor in a men’s bathroom stall. The vendor had a tray of snow cones on the floor next to him. He sent the video to Houston’s Channel 2:
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. This guy is taking a dump. There’s no doubt about it. What sane person could possibly think, yeah this is a good idea. I’ll just put the food that I’m about to sell on the floor.”
Newly-appointed Astros team president Reid Ryan certainly didn’t appreciate this sort of thing happening on his first day on the job and promptly fired the vendor who is an employee of ARAMARK.
The Houston Astros are bad this season, although it seems to be a concerted effort as the club has to decided to essentially start from scratch. It probably means a couple new food vendors, too. Might be smart to avoid all food at Minute Maid Park for the time being.
