Big b's saves a life, for real.
OK all, I am the guy with the softball park concession and I have been too busy to share much lately( a good problem). This past weekend there was a major little league baseball tournament with around 30 games a day for three days. Record setting heat of 103 amde people very thirsty and I made a fortune on shaved ice and cold bottled water. I have had people from all over the country tell me how much better my concession food is than other parks. Severeal people have told me my smoked pork loin sandwich is the best sandwich they ever had, anywhere anytime, at any price( thank you Dr. of BBQ)
The last day just before the tournament championship game was to be played, a father of a player collapsed to the ground, having a heart attack. His breathing had stopped, as well as his heart. My friend and helper happens to be an RN (he quit becuse of the emotional side of it) he came in and directed several people to do the things needed for them to do CPR. They kept this up for 10-15 minutes before the ambulance got there(the dispatcher had the wrong ballpark). This was all in front of hundreds of people, and his crying wife). They were able to keep his blood flowing long enough for the paramedics to get there, and he was revived after the defiblirater was used several times. He was breathing and talking to his family afterwords and he will be ok now with some medication and dieting ( no more giant brats I guess)I did not feel right about staying open and making him work longer after that, so we left quietly and quickly. When I started this business I had some picture of how it would be. Never did I imagine I would be seeing and being a part of something so heart wrenching as this. Man, do I love this business! I am so thankful and happy for this man and his family. Ed Byorick ownner Big B's Sidewalk Grill- Denver, Colorado
