All-American Night Out
Irene had to study on the night I happened to get tickets to our local minor league heroes The Round Rock Express. So Daddy bravely led the boys to a night out at the old ball yard. First pitch was at 7:05... but by that time we hadn't even gotten off the freeway and the fuel light was on in the car. We made it in by the start of the second inning.
Getting the boys to behave in public is one thing. Trying to maintain control while waiting in line at the concession stand is something else. However, we survived... and no thanks to the jerk who cut in front of us when Joey wanted to be picked up ;-(
Our dinner selection consisted of a hot dog bun with ketchup and mustard... (once again, the boys ignored the meat) garnished with half a bag of cotton candy and washed down with diet coke and lemonade. We never did make it to the seats... but we made some new friends by talking about Batman & the Joker at the picnic table with some other folks. Daddy wisely jettisoned the other half-bag of cotton candy soon thereafter.
Highlights of the evening included catching an inning from behind the home team's bullpen, seeing a Hooters girl, Joey climbing up the back of the left field foul pole, and Milo's full-volume a cappella rendition of the big number from the Spongebob Squarepants movie "I'm a Goofy Goober!" sung to the tune of Twisted Sister's "I Wanna Rock" during the drive home.
Here are a few pics from the evening... Thanks Liane!
