TV Stevie spent most of the 2009 season moving from here to there, behind the net, behind the dugouts, next to the dugouts (where we sat when the Chromos were younger) in search in the best seats. Section 207. Row 1. No question.
But there was one little, minor problem. Well, not a problem. More of an inconvenience.
If you sit in Row 2 or higher in any section, you have a drink cup holder.
If you sit in the 1st row of any section, except behind the dugouts, you're on your own.

But come Opening Day 2011, we hadn't done it.
Then one afternoon in late April, Sandee & Anthony arrived at the stadium all agog. "Look what Anthony found at BB&B!" Sandee brought the packaging so I would know exactly what to look for.
TV Stevie and I went to our BB&B after the game. I couldn't find Sandee's treasure anywhere. I finally asked the store manager, who told me yes, they had them out back. He offered to fetch one for me. "Two," I replied, as TV Stevie whipped out his iPhone to call XGMan.
The next night, more of the Coolest People in the Stadium had someplace to safely stow their beverages.
Maven frequently eyes them in envy. Stadium security suggested we purchase a bunch of them and rent them out to other first row attendees. People inquire if we took them off strollers. Others say, "I need one of those for my lawn mower!" Dave Anthony expects mine to be out and ready for his beverage when he finishes his first in-game spiel.
And this is just one of the many reasons Section 207 seats the Coolest People in the Stadium.
