Apparently, a day of being Ferris Bueller turned into a few weeks away from blogging. Sorry about that. I’ll try to catch you up on what has happened in the next few posts.
To start with, our day at the Indians game was fantastic. The heavens opened up on us after we parked the van so we were soaked by the time we made it to the stadium. Luckily, the bathrooms are heated very well which gave us a safe haven to warm up.
The 30 minute rain delay also gave us a chance to hit the KidZone batting cages and other games. It was great going on a weekday because there were very few kids (or other people) at the ballpark. We practically had the place to ourselves.
With the rain at the start, the very small crowd and fact that they needed to prep for the evening game, the Indian’s personnel upgraded the seats of everyone in the upper bowl. It was like that really old Bob Uecker commercial, “must be in the front row.”
And this time it was nearly true!
Honestly, I don’t know that I’ve ever had better seats for an Indians game. We came close to some foul balls, had pictures taken with Slider and Onion, got hats and squishy baseball giveaways throw at us, and got $30 in free concessions. Plus, the Indians won the game inspectacular fashion. Seriously, had I known our luck was going to be so good that day, I would’ve bought a lottery ticket!
So, the moral of the story is that Ferris Bueller was right after all – you do need to take a break every once in a while and enjoy making memories with the people you love.
PS – my only regret from the day was that they didn’t play Danke Schoen or Twist and Shout at the stadium that day so I couldn’t bust out my dance moves…
