12 Innings

This baseball season has reminded me of my sophomore year of college, where I missed very few Aggie baseball homestands. My grades definitely showed it, and my parents probably weren't too thrilled, but I had a great time. And really, isn't that what college is all about? No?

Oh yes I forgot--college is also about sleeping late.

This year I've been to a record (for me) number of Rangers games and probably will still make a few more before the season's over. I'm not really sure how it happened, but I have no complaints. I think it's one of the best parts of living in the DFW area, and fortunately, I no longer have to worry about studying for tests (or worry because of not studying enough for tests) and can go have fun.

Last night, we headed out to the Ballpark compliments of the Cooks and had a great time. Our seats were the best I've ever sat in--second row on the first base side. We were within FEET of two foul balls. The Rangers must've wanted us to enjoy our seats for longer than usual since they took it into extra innings. We had fun, and it was a 'W'!

Saturday night after a discussion among friends, the general consensus was that it would be awesome if Josh Hamilton changed his batting music to "The Great Adventure" by Steven Curtis Chapman. So, you can only imagine the great delight we had when that very song came on as we were driving home (including "The Prologue" if you know what I'm talking about.) Loud singing happened. Very, very loud.

Thanks Ashley and Chris for the laughs and the fun!

  1. So much fun! Glad I didn't need facial reconstructive surgery from that foul ball. Enjoyed the fellowship and singing. We entertained the guys in front of us if nothing else!
