The Angels have dumped the terrible in-stadium food monopoly Aramark. The concession for Angel stadium's food and beverages now belongs to Legends Sports and Entertainment. READ IT AND WEEP.

Leave it to the L.A. Times to avoid criticizing one of America's most disgusting corporations. Aramark is a heavily-breaded high-sodium disaster. But of course, the Times instead gets its digs at the Angels because the team's pursuit of quality happens to find it hiring a company created by the Yankees and Cowboys (sports teams, not the CEOs although that is probably a good description of the WallStreeters behind it all). Author Bill Shaikin fixates on the Halos working with Legends and its pedigree instead of digging a half-inch deep to ask - why would the Angels dump longtime stadium concessionaire Aramark?

There will be no journalism practiced at the Times.There is only a decade plus of sub-mediocrity, you can bet Shaikin has not inquired of any food poisonings or unsanitary conditions at the stadium - not when the shills for the LA TIMES bark along the stadium aisles desperate to keep "journalism" (aka establishment lapdogging) subsidized.

Everything about Aramark stinks, from its sourced food to its service to the room temperature turds it overprices and serves. And now this pestilence is gone from our stadium. I wondered if I would live to see the day, but maybe this was the season Arte actually tried the garbage that the Knothole club has spent over a decade passing off as edible.
