But to some, one of the most important people in the stadium. Look closely at the button on his left shoulder - BEER $9. Now I like a beer at the ball game as much as the next guy but it's past the point where I'm willing to pay their price. (I don't like Budweiser anyway.) Do I have $9 in my pocket? Sure. Is 14 ounces of bland brew worth that much to me? No way. Won't pay it. To the Cardinals' credit, though, Busch is one of the shrinking number of stadiums that let you bring in your own water and food. In lots of other cities it's pay the hot dog ransom or starve.
