Safeco Field is the bestest ballpark ever. It somehow manages to combine that old-school brick feel with modern touches. Nothing else rivals the view on a clear day, the sound of a train in the background, and a beer, garlic fries and hot dog in your hand. Even when it starts to rain in the third inning and the Star Wars theme leaps to mind and gets stuck in your head as the retractable roof slowly starts to creep over the entire park like a huge starship. Even when the Mariners lose 11-2 to the Twins. It's still somehow all good.
