listening to games on the radio. cheering the home team. the tickets. the wave. the food. the smell.
and just sometimes meeting players (cue picture of joe kelly. with my sister. so yes, I did.)
(and also I apologize to my sister because this is a very unflattering look for you. I know you're not fat.)
For my birthday this past year my sister got me a set of twelve tickets to six games to our minor league team ("our ball club may be minor league, but at least it's triple A!") and then we headed up north for a major league game last thursday (and I forgot my camera... second year in a row. good going, girl friend.) but hey, gotta be in the moment, right? (and fyi, I did end up on the jumbo tron - it was my awesome dancing - and I even got to rap it out to Fresh Prince... What's not to love?)
But in all honestly, I would be pathetically sad without baseball games. It just wouldn't be summer without a trip to the home-team ballpark.
But I also morn the fact the Louisville does not have a professional baseball team. (also the fact that they win like every game we're NOT at, but have only lost very, very badly when we've showed. ugh.)
What's your favorite summer tradition?
