Take me out to the ball game!!

Ok ... how long did you think I could go without blogging about my favorite sport ever?? :) This week I had the WONDERFUL opportunity of watching my favorite team play in person. It would have been even better to watch them play at home...but beggars can't be choosers.

There are so many great things related to baseball. I have yet to see a bad baseball movie; my favorite of all time is Field of Dreams. The movie "Fever Pitch" has so many great quotes about baseball that are so true. How many things do you care about today that you cared about 5 years ago? 10? I didn't even care about baseball 10 years ago, but the point is that it's one of those things you carry with you. Some of my favorite memories of mine, take place in ballparks. Whether it's sitting with my parents watching my brothers play; or whether it's sitting with a group of friends in front of the tv... Baseball IS America's past time. Not as much as it used to be, but there's just something about it. The atmosphere of shouting fans, the smells... man. There's just nothing like it. :)

...Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks....

Yeah. Life is good. :)
