just me and dent. no kids.
tickets were free.
awesome seats... 24 rows from home plate!
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.
