Baseball


Tom's been wanting to see a baseball game since the weather got nice. Don't get me wrong - Tom is not a baseball fan, but rather he wanted to take pics with his new camera. I merrily go along with this plan for a different reason altogether: the food. People think I'm crazy because I go to ballgames to eat hotdogs, garlic fries, lemonade, cotton candy, and beer, but there's really no better time (or place) to enjoy all that junk.  

Last night we went for the first time to Portland's PGE Park and watched AAA teams, the Beaver versus Las Vegas 51s. For me, baseball games are more about the food and the people watching rather than the game itself. I often find that Tom will talk to me about something that just happened, or I will hear the crowd cheer loudly, and I have no idea what just happened because I was in the midst of watching someone. People are immensely fascinating to me, much more than a little ball that flies from here to there. I am just worried that one of these days, the ball will come flying at me in the face and I won't even know it.

Too bad I didn't have the foresight to charge my camera battery.

I had a new lens and ran out of power before the 4th inning.

Tom, that was a very sad story.

Nattie, I want you to know I love baseball, but I love the food too. When we went I had a frozen lemonade, which was absolutely fantastic. I also really like their margaritas, and their hot dogs, of course.
