Ditch Days

Just got back from another baseball game this afternoon. I love getting the afternoon off of work (paid) to go eat hot dogs and drink beer. No really, I loooove it. The tickets were free, given to me by the boss, so I grabbed my assistant and we had a ditch day. A cold, wet, ditch day. The weatherman on the jumbotron said it was 42 degrees. And I rained nearly the entire game (in fact it snowed last night, I can’t believe its mid-May and it still snowed! see those clouds on the horizon in the picture below?). But a ditch day is a ditch day, no matter the weather. Oh, and incase you’re wondering, the Rockies won this time.

  1. We get to do that on July 23. We have the Skybox at Shay Stadium for a Mets game. It comes equipped with full open bar and food. And there is nothing better to make baseball more interesting than a couple of cocktails.

  2. I LOVE going to baseball games. in my top 5 of fun things to do. alas, it’s so much harder to get tix to a Sox game this year, since everyone & their grandma suddenly decided to become a fan….

  3. I worked at Coors Field for three seasons, startng when it opened. I’ve seen a lot of games there, and I’ll see plenty more. I still think it’s one of the best stadiums in the game, despite the fact that homeruns are supposedly easier to hit. Go Rockies.

  4. wow. i need a job like yours. i wish i could find something that let me do that. i need to search for a new or second job anyway. the salary at the newspaper just isn’t cutting it any more. now, if only they had turkey hot dogs…

  5. lambchop – the weather “dampened” the experience. sorry.

    jocelyn – baseball and beer go hand-in-hand.

    erin – and just when i though i couldn’t like you any more.

    cello – it’s not like that all the time. work is work no matter what job you have.
