My super awesome best friend Ksra won some tickets to Tuesday night’s baseball game: Indians vs. Oreo Cookies…er…rather Baltimore Orioles. Yeah, that’s it. Oh and when I hear the name Baltimore, the first thing that always pops into my mind is a quote from “Silence of the Lambs” when the senator is talking to Hannibal Lecter and he insults her and she hisses, “Take this thing back to Baltimore.” Never fails, I always think of that quote, and sometimes I say it to myself out loud.
Okay, so the first thing we did before going to the game was meet up at her sister’s place (El Fid) for an utterly delicious meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn supper. We even managed to quarantine a nasty bee that broke in on the party. Sorry, bees aren’t invited.
Onward to Progressive Field! Once there, the smell of stadium food teased my senses. Surely I couldn’t still be hungry after eating a meal a short while ago. And yet I was. Screw my diet. I had to have a beef hotdog with stadium mustard. I also ordered waffle fries and to even out everything we ordered a bottle of water. Ksra bought a lemon smoothie. Later on during the game we split a beer, too.
We found our seats, enjoyed most of the game and then left after singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch. We then continued to stretch our legs by walking back to the parking garage. Right by my friend’s car, on a pillar, was graffiti. I immediately had to take a photo of it for Evil-E.
It was such a fun night! Thanks Ksra! Here are some photos:
We were geared up to support The Tribe.
I actually caught a pitch in motion here. Don’t know who was up at bat, I just know it was someone from our team.
Hot diggity-dog. I took a bite of it before I realized I should take a photo of an authentic, stadium treat. So there it is.
Here’s a shot gone awry – we were trying for a photo together and well…we got one! So it technically didn’t go that awry. Observe our eyeballs. That reminds me, I need to pluck my eyebrows.
