The funny thing about bleachers, is that everyone has used them. It’s like toilet paper and probably as dirty. So, what are the uses of bleachers. Let’s discuss:
1). To Sit On: Of Course. The best answer. I feel like this is Family Feud. People use bleachers to sit on. Anyone that has ever been to a high school football game or their child’s baseball game has sat on large bleachers. Just because we sit on the bleachers, it doesn’t mean that they are comfortable. Is there anything more annoying than squeezing into a row of bleachers with a fat lady on one side and a beer drinker on the other? None that I can think of.
2). To Exercise On: If you were in weight training or PE in high school, odds are good that you did bleacher runs or jumps. For these gym exercises you are going to want a heavy set of bleachers that you can roll to where you need it and that won’t flip up and injure anyone.
3). To Coach With: Anyone that has been a soccer coach can relate to the feeling of herding cats. How is it possible to get 15 or more seven year old girls to listen to you? The answer: Sit them onto a portable bench and stand in front of them.
4). At a Football/Basketball Game: Everyone knows the type. Loyal as can be with their school’s name imprinted on the stadium chair. In college, I vowed never to be that person. I didn’t believe in carrying a chair around. Now, I can’t live without my stadium chair. I don’t care about a little ridicule or embarrassment. Heck, I have four kids. Nothing is more embarrassing than being thrown up on and that doesn’t bother me anymore.
This list is not exhaustive. There are plenty of additional reasons to buy bleachers and stadium chairs. A One Bench Bleacher for example is a beautiful addition to any sports court or park area. So, let’s keep brainstorming. I’m sure we can come up with at least ten uses of modern day bleachers.
