Take me out to the Ball Game

In honor of OL’s visit from Europe and my being a baseball virgin, Mom and Dad took us to see the Yankees vs Tigers last night. We were lucky in that it wasn’t rained out. They played 9 innings. We were unlucky in that the score was 3-1 Tigers won with the Yankees scoring in the 9th inning. It was also sauna like conditions for the players and the spectators. I felt bad for them. Personally, I’d have struck out to avoid running in that sweltering heat. It was a pretty awesome experience. OL got a hat, well, 2 hats cause Mom and Dad both bought him one. Mom got me a t-shirt. It was a lot of fun. Here’s some pics…

One thing that amazed my mom and I were the prices of food and drinks..and how much was being consumed. I wanted some popcorn, but guess what? It only sells in large and jumbo. Large being 1500+calories and Jumbo being 2500+ calories. I think we figured out why diabetes and obesity are rampant in this country. And why the store had to stock 5XL t-shirts. Portion sizes are out of control. At least at the movies they charge 6$ but you can buy a small which is 500 calories. Yeesh.

Enough ranting about food…the game was fun. OL even told me to shut up so he could watch the game. LOL.
