Being that Johnnie is from Seattle, we are definitely Mariners fans. Unfortunately this game wasn't the best that the Mariners played. Luckily for us, the bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cold draft beers kept smiles on our faces despite the Rangers beating the Mariners in a 12-5 victory. That's right... I said bacon-wrapped hot dogs :)
Happiness is sunshine, good friends, and cold beer :)
We may have been the only Mariners fans in the ballpark :)
Whenever the Texas Rangers hit a home run, fireworks were set off and the song from the movie "The Natural" was played. It was a pretty inspirational sight to see! The Rangers had four home runs, including one grand slam.
The highlight of the game for all of us was when Johnnie caught a Texas line-drive home run ball! Technically he didn't catch it, he simply stopped it with one hand while holding (and not spilling) a beer in the other ;) Being a Mariners fan, he decided to give the ball to a young Rangers fan sitting behind us.
The game was an attendance record for the season!
Texas set a franchise record for season attendance with 2,946,949 in it's 51st season.
"Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
