The game was a lot of fun. The stadium is absolutely amazing, but my dad was right. It totally caters to people with money. Altogether, our night out at the ballpark cost well over $200. I can't imagine how much it would have been with the kids. We sat in the "Redbird Club" area which had an air-conditioned (well, it wasn't air-conditioned at the time, it was nipply!) area with 6 stations of different cuisines to choose from. LP and I had 'gourmet' pizzas. It's a far cry from hot dogs and nachos, that is for sure. Our meal was over $30, and that was just one soda. But it was a lot of fun. LP is usually not allowed to take pictures, as you can see from the picture above, it's more like a "Where's Waldo" game than a picture of me.
On a sad note, we lost one of Cardinal players this weekend. Josh Hancock, relief pitcher, was killed in a car accident. He was only 29. And that just sucks.
Only a few more weeks until we go to the beach. We have two out of town soccer tournaments and Rug has started softball, so no rest for the wicked!
Here is a question to leave you with that I heard on the radio the other day: Is there a quote or line from a book that changed your way of thinking, and if there is, what is it?
I will tell you my answer tomorrow!
