“I thought I saw that the Royals game started at 2:00″
That was the thought that came to mind Sunday while I sat in church staring at the stained glass windows and the beautiful light shining through. It was going to be a wonderful spring day, I could tell. It was far from the rains and storms we’d seen Friday and Saturday. And I began to realize that I’d seen something that said the Royals game was at 2:00 and not 12:00. I think it was Saturday night on the satellite while looking for Saturday’s game. But, I didn’t make the connection til’ I saw that sun shining into the Sanctuary.
As soon as church ended, I looked at my cell phone to verify my faint vision. Sure enough, the game didn’t start until 2:00. I hadn’t figured on getting to see a game while they were in Texas. Friday and Saturday was too wet to take a chance in making a 3 hour one way drive. Sunday, Cody had to elder. All I could hope for was to see them in Houston during the middle of the week in June. They only make two trips to Texas this year- one to Arlington and one to Houston.
But, talking my husband into going at the spur of the moment wasn’t going to be easy. You could say that he doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in his body. He just doesn’t deal well with change- including plan changers like this. But, every once in a while he’ll surprise me.
Not this time. I got a resounding “no”. So, I left it alone and we went to Sunday School. About 15 minutes later, he taps on my shoulders and says, “You wanna go?” Are you kidding me? Of course I want to go. But, really, are you kidding me? ‘Cause this ain’t something to joke about.
And we were off on one of those signature crazy trips we seem to make. I got our tickets online while Cody filled up with diesel and got cash. We ran home to change and put some cokes in a cooler. Then it was time to settle in for a long drive.
It took over three hours to get there and we missed most of the first inning. But, it’s ok, the Royals scored not long after we got there.
It was such a beautiful day to the sights, smells, and sounds at the ballpark.
Tickets were just $10 as they had a special where all tickets $33 and under were just $10.
We had a great view of entire game except for one play that DeJesus tried to make right underneath us. Cody had said that we had to leve by 5:30. I was getting worried with each pitching change and the game coming to a tie that I wasn’t going to get to see all of the game.
Rally Hats- Now there’s something you don’t see very often anymore. Unfortunately these worked. I would have rather left the game before it was over than have the great view we had of the 9th inning homerun that gave the Rangers the win.
But the Royals won the series 2 out of 3. They maintained their winning record while the Rangers still have a losing record. I reminded my Rangers fan co-worker that we won 2 out of 3 with a note on the promotional hats that we got. Being the only Royals fan in the building there was no need to tell him who left the note or the hats. It wasn’t too long before he game down to thank me for them either.
