On my relationship with baseball.

So Z has always enjoyed watching baseball.
While I've never really shared this particular
interest, I thought I'd accompany him to a 
Dodgers game anyway.

Z picked me up from LAX 
after my trip to WA
& I got in a little city-style shopping
(Oh how I miss shopping in Chicago)
while he worked on his
 Holy Week sermons.

Then we just had to eat at 
The Oinkster...
soooo good!

Then off to Dodger Stadium!

The young guys from
The Deadliest Catch
got to throw in the first pitch.

Z knew that I wasn't super thrilled to 
be there, so he decided to get a scorecard.
Neither of us had ever kept score before, 
but he thought it would appeal to 
my librarian self.

he was right.
I really enjoyed keeping score...
it gave me a purpose during the game
and made things seem to move faster.

I will concede that this game was 
the most enjoyable baseball game that
I can remember.

But don't call me a baseball fan just yet.

I feel the same way. Living in Philly, Michael became a Phillies fan. I became a big fan of the baseball atmosphere... the food, the sights and sounds, the friends. And I took knitting! Lots of knitting! :)

He just buzzed it off for the summer again--it's already been up to 90 degrees here! But he will most likely grow it back out again when it cools down :)
