Let’s Go Nats!
This has been a long week, with a lot of drama (some in our own home, some in the homes of family and friends…) The super-hot weather hasn’t helped – we feel a bit like we’re under siege. Or maybe that’s just because I’m re-reading some of my old fantasy novels…
In any case, we left our air-conditioned fortress last night to go to a baseball game – the San Diego Padres at the Washington Nationals. We *almost* didn’t go to the game – we had a hundred and one excuses. The tickets, though, had been given to us by dear friends, and we *despise* letting any tickets go to waste, so we headed down to the stadium.
And — wow! — were we glad we went! Our seats were wonderful, just a hair down the third-base line, in the club level (which meant a/c inside, before the game started.) The game ended up being very close, with shifts of momentum that seemed to doom our team. Our big slugger, Adam Dunn, hit THREE home runs – and we needed every one of them by the top of the ninth. All in all, a grand evening (and the heat wasn’t even as bad as we had thought it would be, although it was a bit disconcerting to see the thermometer on the car registering 94 degrees at 10:30 at night!)
