At the Ballpark

Family night out at the baseball game Monday night gave us these lovely moments...

I got on the jumbo screen! Yes, that was me!! And contrary to what you may have heard, I was *NOT* dancing to Twist and Shout. I did not twist. Or shout. I was just clapping wildly. But it worked. And earned me five seconds of fame. On the big screen. And I'm glad I had on some lip gloss.

There was a lady a few rows in front of us who turned around talked to the people right behind her the entire game. They were all together - she knew them. But she talked to them the entire game. No, seriously -- The. Entire. Game. "So I gave my computer to my mom and dad....and mom took a class....and now she knows more than I do.....And once we drove TO and FROM St. Louis in ONE stupid was that....and we can't do those kinds of things anymore.....This time of year makes my skin SO DRY.....So I just went straight to her house and told her I would help with the kids.....Well, we had that problem when we lived in Texas......"

People will do anything to get a free t-shirt that has an oil change place logo on it. Honestly people, have you no dignity?

Daughter: "Why did papa get a brand new bag? Did his other one have a hole in it?"

I may or may not have yelled THATWASASTRIKE!! really loud in the bottom of the 6th.

Approximately 80 year old lady behind us when the other team scored a double play on us: "Well, that just looked like poop." You tell 'em lady.

A late rally in the 9th - which is always most exciting - wasn't enough to earn the home team a win - which is always not exciting.

And it was fun. And the weather was great. And the game was good. Even though we lost. And a good time was had by all. Amen.

5 Wanna' ramble too?:

This is just to show you how faithful of a Beef I am, because me and sports are like peanut butter and salad dressing. We just don't go together. But I am commenting anyways.

And I am a faithful BFF because I will still be your BFF even though you don't like sports. Because I. Love. Sports.

I had a great time in Memphis at a work outing to a Redbirds game. We should go to more local games here with the kids

It is a first class stadium and a real jewel to our city. We love going down there.
