  •  me and jan are together on this. (8+ / 0-)

    i used to go to the park once or twice a year just to be in the sunshine, eat dodger dogs and sing in the 7th inning stretch. the only thing i know about baseball is there is no crying in baseball, according to tom hanks.  

    6 of us went to a sunday game, years ago, before the strikes.  the ticket agent had not blocked out the tickets as she sold them so many were sold twice.  the first people to arrive got the seats listed on the tickets and the next people got other seats.  they did not have 6 together when we got there, so the management gave us 2 seats behind home plate, we sent the boys there, and 4 seats between 3rd base and home, we ladies went there.  all of these seats were in the first few rows, seats we would never have been able to afford.  i have to admit, that was the best time we ever had to the ball park.  the boys got to act like this was serious and we girls cheered for every player, every hit, every run.  we sang, and threw the beach ball, we all had stitch projects we worked on as we watched.  and we spied on the boys with the binoculars.  it was the best!
