There’s An App For That

I am black and gold through and through but you can color me a tad bit green green with envy at some of the cool stuff they are incorporating into the new San Francisco 49ers stadium in Santa Clara, California. True to their Silicon Valley roots, the Niners appear to be building the most technologically advanced stadium to date. According to reports, not only will the stadium boast site-wide WiFi capability but it will also include Internet Protocol Television and fans will be able to watch replays of every play on their mobile devices with angles of their choosing.

Cue the fireworks and confetti. Silicon Valley can officially stop working now as we have reached the pinnacle of tehcnological advances – the ability to check your mobile phone to find the shortest beer line in the stadium.

But, wait, there’s more! And I think the ladies will find this one particularly appealing – you can also use that app to check the lines for the restrooms. Oh. My. God. Can’t they make that a universal thing that works everywhere? Oh, and also to check the food lines. You know, in case you feel inclined to waste your beer money fund on something as frivolous as food.

So, how much would you expect to pay for something this wonderful? $75 per ticket? $100 per ticket? Who knows! It’s definitely more than fans pay to go to the old Candlestick Park. Seeing as how 70% of season ticket holders have already signed on for the 2014 season, though, I’d say 49ers fans are ready for a stadium experience fit for the 21st century.

About the author
Jill grew up in West Virginia [insert redneck joke here] surrounded by refrains of Let's Go Mountaineers! and Eat Sh*t Pitt! The daughter of a transplanted New Englander, she was raised as a Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins/Celtics fan. She left the mountains of her childhood home to attend THE Ohio State University (Hey, Uncle Crappy, O-H!) only to heed the siren call back to WVU for law school [insert lawyer joke here], where she met her husband, a native Pittsburgher. Jill has lived in Pittsburgh for the past 12 years and has discovered that you really can't live in Pittsburgh without loving professional sports. Except basketball - professional basketball does not exist for Pittsburghers. And you could have gone the last 19 years without loving baseball. Really, you don't have to love sports to live in Pittsburgh; you just need to profess your undying devotion to the Steelers and Penguins and, yes, even the Pirates, which she has done wholeheartedly (sorry, Dad!). Jill and her husband have been successfully indoctrinating their two children into the world of Pittsburgh sports, which means that they also will know next-to-nothing about basketball.

  1. My God, that is brilliant.

    I guess I shouldn’t hold my breath for Snyder to adopt these policies since you can barely get cell signal at Fed Ex Field.

    This would be rad … if only I could afford the beer at an NFL game. Er. Radder still, if I could afford a ticket.

    I live 6 hours away and still might consider season tickets just for that app.
