Baseball. Minor League Baseball.
Here in Albuquerque, it’s the Isotopes. Farm Team to the Colorado Rockies.
That’s It. That’s All I know.
Baseball is not my favorite pastime, but it has always been part of my life.
I fondly call Baseball the Background Noise of Summer.
Summer that Goes on into the Fall. Seemingly Forever. 🙂
But that’s Ok. For Mr. Doodle, Baseball is King.
He Loves Everything About it.
I Like the Goofy Food.
And So, on a Morning Drive to Work, the Classical Station was giving away tickets to the Isotopes….
Topes Tuesday. Call in and Win.
Which actually isn’t that big of a deal because not many people here listen to the Classical Station.
When they have a contest, I always win. Not much competition.
With Free Baseball Cards to the first 3000 guests.
And the Food. $42 for a family of 4.
But oh my, the Seats….Far, Far, Far Right Field. In the Fly Ball Zone.
Tooth Fairy Money gives you free reign to buy all the snacks…Cotton Candy, Soda, Dippin’ Dots.
We made it to the Fourth Inning. The sun finally set. The winds picked up. The air was cool.
A Good, Short Night of Baseball.
And the next morning, buried on Page 4 of the Sport’s Section…
Isotopes lost to the Oklahoma City Dodgers 8 – 6.
Some Stay-at-Home Magic.
