Saturday Night

Saturday Night at Chase Field

Highlights:

just me and dent. no kids.
tickets were free.
awesome seats... 24 rows from home plate!
3 homeruns
killed the marlins 7-1 (I have something against sports teams from florida)
saw misty may-treanor in person... and her gold medal
reveled in the fact that we had better seats than mrs. may-treanor



Baseball games are typically social events for me. The game is usually too slow to stay tuned in the entire time... however fly balls flying overhead at regular intervals keeps one's attention! The game was fast-paced and I was close enough to see what was happening. It was fun to have a few hours simply to engage in america's favorite past time and sit with denten. And be amused at all of the beer-guzzling fans surrounding us. It was also kind of cool to see queen of the beach volley-ball court there, fresh from Beijing. We got a few pics, but none worth posting.



We followed the game with a trip by Redbox (love that) for "The Other Bolyn Girl." If that story weren't true, I would call the creator of the storyline sick and twisted. Seeing as it was pretty factual, I really liked it. It made me want to walk through the Tower of London again and listen closer to my tour guide. Who doesn't love a good English scandal?!
It was a great evening, much needed and much appreciated.

I am in the middle of the book "The Other Boleyn Girl" sick & twisted is a good description.

It was the Diamondbacks being *killed* at the game we went to two weeks ago. Less fun. And no gold medalists in sight. I love Misty-May...so cool that she was there!

Erin said...

I am so glad that you got out on a date! YEAH!

How fun. I would like to go to a Diamondbacks game one of these day, but I think we would probably bring out girls, because Payton got a free ticket to a game from the library.

Bliss. Summer nights at the ballpark. We used to do that all the time...you make it sound like such a treat...is that some sort of indicator??

What a wonderful night! I love going to sporting events. TV's not the greatest, but being in the middle of it is fun. Date nights are a must, but as most parents know, too few and far between!

how fun that you got to see misty may! i watched her so many times over the past few weeks thinking "i wish i were 6'2""

i lose patience with ballgames at maybe the 4th inning. then i start watching all the people too!

A picture of you and Dent at the ballfield reminds me of pictures from New York. Or, when you took me to the ONLY ballgame I've ever been to while you were in WI.

Gorgeous picture of you Amberly! What a fun date night. Yes, I agree The Other Boleyn Girl was a fascinating story because it was true and yes, I agree with you and Deirdre...sick and twisted.
