Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Saturday night Josh and I joined friends to watch the Colorado Rockies take on the Kansas City Royals. This is the first major league game I've attended since watching my M's back in the day. It was a beautiful night in the ballpark. The Royals took the lead early in the game with two runs. But between the fourth and seventh innings, the Rockies managed to hit two home runs and accrue six runs.

Tony and Brian: rally cap time.

Christy, Josh and I were the only Rockies "fans." (We're the worst fans ever! Christy wore a Rockies cap because it was "cute and pink," Josh had never been to a major league game and I, well, you know What's that?) The rest of our crew cheered for the Royals. In the final few innings, when the Royals were lagging, Brian and Tony wore their baseball caps rally style. The Royals did score two runs in the final inning, but it was too little, too late. The game ended in a record two hours and 38 minutes.

Tony and Christy: We were celebrating lovely Christy's birthday.

Brian and Kristin: two of the coolest Royals fans you'll meet.

Still, we had great fun and enjoyed some refreshing beverages afterward. The Wynkoop serves a mean honey root beer!

Even though I know nothing about baseball, going to games is fun! We took Olivia last summer and she still talks about it. So we're planning on going again this year.
