Tuesday evening was perfect baseball temperature - 80 degrees, light breeze. And The Ballpark in Arlington was a ghost town. I liked this Eat More Fowl sign on the 3rd base line. Notice lack of fans
The Ranger mascot waved his flag to no one, except us - we were in the 2nd deck - great seats and view. Except when the only four people to arrive late plopped right in front of us. Seriously? You don't have to sit in your ticketed seats when there are lots to choose from. Must we all cram together?
Even I (with bad eyes) can see the monster screen. We were counting on Cole Hamels to pitch well, but he seems to have lost his mo-jo.
So, V for Victory (or Not)....the or NOT prevailed once again...and another decent player got injured and will be out for awhile. Sad baseball times in Arlington Texas and it's downhill for a long hot summer.
Drats. I giggled about the only people to arrive late sitting in front of you. That always happens to me. Plus, those people are very tall. Drats all around.ReplyDelete
I hope your week is a more victorious one than that game was.
oh we had fun. And yes, it happens at movie theaters too.......of all the seats in the place....Delete
I can never understand why people choose to sit in front of someone when there are plenty of other seats to choose from. So silly! Sorry your team wasn't victorious, but it was probably still nice to get out and see the game.ReplyDelete
indeed - the ballpark is really nice and there was plenty going on to watchDelete
Hi Joanne - I too couldn't understand that - I get cross when people sit in front of me in a cinema and the place is empty ... so quite agree ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Indeed - we think alike!Delete
I see you have Fowl poles, too.Though I don't know if they were designated as such at Suntrust Field here in Atlanta. We also had a cow that did the Tomahawk Chop...ReplyDelete
funny. I'm not a fan of Chick-Fil-A and don't care for the product, but the fowl/foul made me chuckleDelete
My youngest son played professional soccer, doing quite well then someone kicked his ankle instead of the ball. He had to hankg up his boots hence his move to Spain.ReplyDelete
Loved your post Joanne, hope the injured player recovers to play another game,
Old Adrian just takes longer to heal. He's been on the team forever and he can still swat the ball far! He'll be back. ThanksDelete
The or not sure wins out many a time. Ugg to those people that sit in front.ReplyDelete
hey - Rangers fans are accustomed to losing ....Delete
Sorry to hear about he loss and the injury. Someone getting injured is the hardest thing for me to see at a sports event.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It wasn't a break, but you could see him run and then hobble. He's had this before...takes awhile to heal a hamstringDelete
I'm the kind of person who would sit in my assigned seat anyway, lol. Good to know that it's not a big deal when empty seats are plentiful. I'll keep that in mind so I don't annoy the fans behind me!ReplyDelete
funny. I tend to follow rules, but....Delete
Never been to pro baseball gameReplyDelete
good to see once - just to have the experience liveDelete
I used to watch games in TV, not real...ReplyDelete

I am sure you had a nice time. Watching a game live in a stadium is always a unique experience. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
