Take me out to the ball game....

I did something tonight that I havent done in a long time. I went to a minor league baseball game. I met Karen in Rome at the stadium to watch the Rome Braves play the Greenville Bombers. Except for the fact that the Braves BLEW IT in the top of the 9th on a pop fly error TO THE SHORTSTOP.....It was a fun night. The stadium is smaller than the Hoover Met where I once watched the Birmingham Barons play, but the crowd is so much more into it than any other baseball game that I have been to. It only seats about 5k people so traffic in and out isnt that bad either. For $26, I got 2 tickets, sat right below the pressbox but was still close to everything. Then, to top the evening off, they had fireworks. So all in all, it was a great night. Getting to hang out with Karen added to the night as well, even though she doesnt even like BASEBALL......
