Squirrel!

Snow White's godparents were in town over the weekend to help celebrate my mom's birthday. (Happy Birthday, Mom!) One of the scheduled activities was a trip to the ball field for an evening of baseball. Due to the busyness of life, and a pesky little franchise change, it had been YEARS since we had gone out to the field.

In all honesty, I had forgotten how much FUN a baseball game can be...especially if it's at night! The cursing at the umpires/pitcher/third baseman cheering, the drunks spilling their beer lively crowd, and the silly antics of "Nutzy", the mascot, made for a wonderful evening. The season is winding down, but I'd like to think that we will be able to squeeze in one more game before it's over.


When is the last time you went to a baseball game? Played baseball? Spilled your beer?

Glad you guys had a good time. I have heard only good things about those Flying Squirrels!

Nothing better than a minor league baseball game. Nothing.

Oddly baseball is a sport I can live without ... I have been to one Yankee game in early April many many years ago .. it was boring and cold ... I dont play sports because I am klutz but I'd be happy to share/spill a beer with you and SW ...maybe on Bud's Beach or CDub's boat

I've been to that stadium - front row seats right over the dugout. LOVE a live baseball game. (Haven't been since they changed to the Squirrels though.)

As a matter of fact, I met our good friend Jamie for the first time July 4 weekend at the Deltaville ball park, where the stadium uses crab pot wire to keep foul balls from flying into the stands.

Priceless!

Glad y'all had fun. Happy Birthday, Mumma!

We have a triple-A (?) team as a client. I could go any time I want but I never do. It's a shame -- we went last year and had a good time, but I never think of it.

SPILL BEER?! BITE YOUR TONGUE! ; )

I was supposed to be at that game :( It was a beautiful night for it!!

The last game we went to was to watch the A's play when we were in California about 20342039847 years ago. I think the kids were 5th & 6th grade? We had box seats right at the first base line. Didn't even spill my beer.

I am hoping to get to a Squirrels game soon... preferably on a night they do fireworks.

Love the pic of you and SW :)

Baseball games are fun! But, I think my favorite would be any high school football game.
Of course, this is Texas and therefor, that just...IS. ;-)
