a particular day

July 24, 2006

MIL 4, CIN 1

at the ballpark

I really do try and focus on the actual game, but baseball is so full of other stuff to watch.

In between the beers, today's fascination was the slow fade of cloud shadows as they passed over the stands and field. When that wasn't interesting, there was the crowd. Far from a sell-out, there were enough folks to obsess over.

He doesn't have a ring on, but she does. Are those their kids? Are they on a date?
He should apply sunscreen.
Poor kid, I don't think those tears will make mom cough up the money for a lemon ice.
Those lesbians over there look fun.
Sure is a lot of hair product.
That kid looks really bored.
Flip flops are in.
Man that beer cooler must be a bitch to tote around, even with that shoulder strap.

In other game news:

They replaced "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" with "God Bless America" and I'm not sure if that constitutes hat-taking-off.

Beer was 6 dollars. Seats start at 4.

The Reds lost.

I feel exactly the same way about baseball games (which I have posted before). I can hardly focus on runs and bats and pitches and all that other crap. I have way too much fan dancing like a jackass for the Dance Cam and checking out the hot guys with bitchy girlfriends...

Good times...
