  •  Would you believe I've never been to Camden Yards? (7+ / 0-)

    My late Beloved went...and said it was great, but we got priced right out of going.  We figured it would run us close to $100 for going, parking, tickets, and a little refreshment-- and that was more than a  decade ago!!

    I can remember driving around Memorial Stadium, listening on the raidio, hearing the crowds cheer...that was better than getting hosed for tickets!

    Not long before he passed, MB gave me a drawing of Memorial Stadium, the way we remembered it.  I treasure it, not only because he gave it to me, but for all it represents.

    :-)

    Oh.  And they're called the boys of summer for a reason. There is no way the World Serious should be played any later than the first two weeks of October.  EVER.

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

    •  It helped that we had family in the area (5+ / 0-)

      So we parked at their place and took some sort of shuttle or train or something (details fuzzy).  Was the summer of 1992, so 2 decades ago (now that's a scary thought!) and prices weren't as bad.

      It's the only other stadium we ever visited aside from Vet Stadium - In the 80s, The Phillies used to have this deal where if you were a kid & got straight As for a semester, you could pick out a certain number of tickets for $1, and I was a good student.  :-D

      I’m a feminist because the message is still "don’t get raped" not "don’t rape"
