Dirk (my 9-year old) has become quite the baseball fan in the last several months, and Kyle (age 6) has enjoyed it also. Dirk has been excited about a contest for a free suite from the local paper/YourHub.com ... but after almost two weeks of "good behavior", his reward was a game on me. I ended up getting tickets via Craigslist from a very nice woman in nearby Louisville - section 241, row 5, seats 9-12 (club level!) that are $41 apiece but we settled on $100 for the four-pack as she couldn't use them and "just wanted someone to enjoy them" ... and we did!
While I'm not much of a sports fan, this was a fairly exciting baseball game with a lotta scoring action and a frantic flurry by the Dodgers in the 9th inning to try to win. The Rockies finally won 9-6 with the go-ahead run at the plate striking out to end the game.
P.S. Since I enjoy taking pictures, another rite of passage is shooting sports events ... and this was my first Major League one. We were on the second level a little past third base ... so a bit away from the action and left-handed batters were preferred ... but I got a few good shots. Maybe next time I'll get a Press Pass and shoot next to the dugout from group level! ;-) Check out a handful of 'em below and/or watch a slide-show of all several dozen pictures here.
