Baseball was always one of those sports I had no interest in watching. It just seemed too slow moving and they always last for.ev.er. Let's just say the only games I enjoy watching are the Superbowl and any time LeBron James is playing, if you know what I mean...
But, I heard the food at baseball games was the bomb, so when Josh recommended we go to the last game of the season the thought of frozen yogurt and nachos won me over.
I'd just like to preface that I think I might have fallen in love with baseball. I guess most games aren't very high scoring and can be pretty boring, but they ended up tying and going into overtime (is that what it's even called in baseball?). It was nuts. People were going crazy. I was going crazy. Every home run I'd hold Madelyn in the air like baby Simba and she'd whip the towel around and clap. I always claim I'm not a sports person, but occasionally I'll surprise myself with how competitive I can get.
I'm still pretty surprised how much we all enjoyed it, despite the look on her face up there ^. Mads did so well there's currently talk of bringing her to a University of Washington football game, since the team is actually good this year. For the first time in like 12 years.
The Mariners unfortunately lost at the last possible moment by one point, with the score 7 to 6, which was a huge let down. It reminded me of why I don't pay attention to sports, I get too emotionally invested. Oh well, it was still a ton of fun! And I had Dippin Dots for the first time since I was like 10, and that alone was the highlight of my week.
Thanks for giving Madelyn and I a memorable first pro-baseball experience. We'll be back next year, Mariners! And Seattle. You have my heart, always.
