LOLOL! It most certainly is enabling. Probably enabling you to keep your job. If that is the case, you get a pass. If not? Oh my!!!!!!!

If it's not an employer mandat issue for you, then you have lowered yourself another notch by taking this gift from people you totally disagree with. I wonder if you can feel good about making their job even harder by costing them an unnessary meal?

Just kidding, have fun and drink it all in, 'cause you'll want to remember what it looks like when you come back in August for a game.

I do alot of business with this company and the last time I was at PNC Park was through them in the Roberto Clemente Suite(right next to the Kennametal Box)
I indirectly enable by living in Allegheny County(paying the RAD tax) There are many other things I dont want that I enable but dont have a choice. The company that is offering the Yanks night is also flying me to Chicago next month and offered free skybox tix to a Cubs/Giant game. I declined the tix and will pay myself & wife to see Wicked

Well congratulations on the position you find yourself in... but really turning down tix to a ball game may be because your wife wanted to see Wicked worse and you score big time with her. Yes, I think no matter how tuff you talk, your wife runs you too, doesn't she?

Join the club of people who compromise.

I have learned to compromise over the years(25 being married), but in this case, there was none.

Well this is just pathetic.. bullish may get to PNC Park before I do! :cry:

In my case the problem is that I live with no sports fans and my wife doesn't do compromise. She said she'd go to the Hickory-Lake County game with me but now she's telling me to go alone. If she doesn't go our daughter won't go.

The three of us will go to an Indians-Rays game next month (my wife gets tickets for one Indians game every year) but those two will be bored. My wife (and my own father) couldn't tell you what baseball team I follow (even though I've worn Pirates caps for 35 years.)
