How did it happen?

For someone who doesn't really like baseball, I've been to more games this season than the last several years combined. I guess you can blame my new-found interest in Wendy. Apparently, this is what happens when your roommate loves baseball and buys tickets to the Saints games.

We went to the game last night and watched them kick the Joliet Jackhammers butts. What a beautiful night to be outside. It wasn't hot, there weren't any pesky insects flying around, absolutely gorgeous.

Wendy's buddy Ron works for the Saints and took us into the depths of the stadium to check out an awesome view of the field from the Windsor Clubhouse, right next to the opposing teams dugout. If you ignore the fact that it was filled with drunks, it's a pretty cool place to watch a game from.

Then we found out that some of her friends were sitting just a few rows in front of us. After the game we headed out to their car to hang out for a bit.

You know, I think I could get used to this whole baseball thing. But only with a team like the Saints, where there's so much going on during the game that sometimes you forget to watch the action.

Of course, getting to watch Rusty announce the game from the top of the Saints dugout for 2 1/2 hours always helps things move right along.
