Don’t know nuthin’ ’bout baseball.

July 10, 2007

Journal, Lauren

One of the many things about me that disappoints Lloyd is my lack of baseball understanding.  I’ve watched it plenty, but it just goes by me like traffic.  Tonight, though, was the best night ever.  Our friend Samith does computer-y stuff for the Pepsi people in Lincoln, so they let him use their Lincoln Saltdogs club-sky-box thing .  It was AWESOME!! There were about twenty people there – Samith & Stephannie, family & friends.  The box was equipped with a cooler full of ALL THE PEPSI YOU COULD DRINK!  Have I died and gone to heaven?

Great googly moogly!!

The best part was taking a wander around the park with Brad, a fellow baseball idiot.  We tried taking a picture of the people in our box, but it’s on his camera.  (Check out to see if he posted it.)  At the end of our walk, we came across the sofas where the grounds crew hangs out.  After much agonizing, I finally asked if I could get my picture taken with them.  (There’s no way to make that sound like I was smooth and cool about it.  I wasn’t.)

What nice young boys.

Thanks, Samith!

Lloyd here: From the “I’m not making this stuff up” department, see if you can match each of these quotes with the correct baseball-idiot:

____1. That thing says it’s 85 degrees out here, but it feels a lot colder. A. Brad
____2. At least it didn’t go into overtime. B. Lauren
____3. They scored four points. Does that count as a home run? C. Samith

at the old ball game

    Lauren, are you flipping the bird with your right hand in that first picture? Were there assorted Pepsi products or just straight up Pepsi? Was there wine to mix with the Pepsi? (Just thinking of Peggy -- ha!) The grounds crew seats look comfy!

    C, A, B

    A hint to those of you taking the quiz: Apparently there’s a “display” that “tells the speed” of the “pitch”.

    Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose; sometimes it rains. Sometimes you get stuck going to the game with pathetic (Pepsitic?) losers.

    Answers to the quiz:
    I realized my mistake immediately after asking about the temperature, Brad was thinking about the generalized concept of going over the set time of a game, and Samith is from another country.
