So last night's Detroit Tigers game started out bad, really bad, okay they were stinkin' up the park.
It was my first game of the year and usually I am freakin' excited no matter what is happening. Not last night. First it was COLD ... especially once the sun went down. Then I was teetering on the fact that I am still getting over being sick from all of last week.
My first 7 innings were really about:
Seats: Look at these cozy cushy roomy seats with a table in the Tigers Den. (Thanks again Deb) It was Magglio Ordenoz night so they were giving out "Maggie" bats.
Food: I was going to get a hot dog and bag of chips. Dog $3.50, chips $1.50 BUT I noticed I could get a kids meal for $5.00 which was a hot dog, bag of chips, juice box, and a toy! I went for the kids meal.
Fountain: As I watched the water fountain shoot streams of cold water, I wondered how the people standing around it could deal with the cold water spraying them in the wind.
Parents: Watched a few sets of parents bringing their improperly dressed for the cold little kids to a late night game on a school night. And what about the mom that let the girls go off by themselves when they were clearly around 10 years old. Doesn't she read the papers about perv's out there in this evil world?
Cameraman: Why do you keep sticking the front of the camera through the hole on the right in the netting behind home plate for a few minutes then moving it 5 inches to the other hole in the netting on the left? There must be a reason.
Hot Dog Vendor: Aren't those bare arms cold? You're fun ... the way you sing super LOUD out "hot daaaaaaaawgs" in your opera voice.
And then the 8th inning.
Tigers 5 Minnesota Twins 9
The Tigers took over, they began playing ball ... GAME ON!
SIX runs in the 8th!
Final score Detroit Tigers 11 ~ Minnesota Twins 9
