Sports Consumer Journal Matt Ringold Due: 11/10/11 The two sporting events that I attended were my sister twelve year old sister Chelsey’s soccer game and a Phillies game. On a Sunday afternoon, I went to the only field at Bryn Athyn Elementary School and watched my sister, who plays for team Germany, take on team USA in a Huntingdon Valley Activities Association senior girls’ soccer league regular season match.

The first business thing I noticed was that on the back of Chelsey’s tee-shirt was a sponsor from a local pizza shop. There were no snack bars or even vending machines to be found around her game. Without a doubt, I encountered much more business and consumption at the Phillies game than at Chelsey’s soccer game. On October 1 st , I saw Roy Halladay pitch in the first game of the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals. Halladay was on the winning side of an exciting 11-6 game.

At the game it was apparent that the fans were ecstatic that the playoffs finally arrived and that they had the chance to see the first playoff game of what could potentially be another

historic season. Many opposing players agree that Philly is one of the toughest if not the toughest place to play for a visiting team because the fans that pack Citizens Bank Park are so passionate and enthusiastic. The fans at this Phillies game seemed to have more zeal than I’ve ever seen
