Funday Sunday

It was minor league baseball time last night. Amigo's Little League team had tickets, so we joined the other families to cheer on the locals. A game at Fox Cities Stadium is more than just a game; it's an event. Contests, freebies, fireworks, and more, make this a great family fun night.
A local band was playing outside the stadium, and Fang the mascot was dancing with fans. Oreo cookies' equivalent to the weinermobile was outside with their own mascot, a giant cookie.
We didn't catch any foul balls or flying t-shirts, but Amigo responded when the announcer asked fans to stand up and hold their Pepsi products in the air. Apparently his enthusiasm with the Mountain Dew bottle was obvious, because the usher chose him to win a prize. Free soda? A gift certificate for Pepsi products? Nothing so mundane.
He won four tickets to a White Sox game two weeks from today.
I guess it's time for a road trip to Chicago!

How lucky! I'm glad you stumbled upon my blog so I could find yours! I'm interested to read more and look in the archives. I await the day when I can have a huge backyard with a garden. For right now my tomato, cucumber and herb pots will have to do.

That's a great baseball story. I went to a game Sunday and have never been so close to being killed by a foul ball. Where's my glove when I need it?!
