The Great American Pastime... or, how I ate 100% junk food for dinner...

BN state has two pro baseball teams... one Major League and one not...

We prefer the not.

Tonight we went to the Not-MLB field. The tickets, in excellent reserved seats were $10.00 apiece. The brats, lemonade and cheese curds were excellent and moderately priced -- and hubby went to get them for me.

The stadium is outdoors, and it was a perfect night for baseball -- The NMLB team was playing the team from Red State and Grad School City -- so, there was someone to cheer against :).

I'm not a huge baseball fan, we mostly go to these games for the fun, the announcers and the wacky stuff they do between innings. We sat in the stands, cheered on our home-town low-paid athletes and ate our brats. We were lucky to be on the shady side of the stadium and in a generally uncrowded part of the stands.

We left before the 7th inning, because we were tired and weren't all that interested in how the game came out. When we left, they were tied 2-2 -- but, we were done. We'd heard the announcer heckle the opposing team and we'd heard him announce a few passing trains and it was time to go home and go to sleep.

Not a bad way to spend a Monday night.

There is a minor league ball club in Lake Effect Snow Central. It's the best ticket in town. The most expensive seats are like $15.00! Plus, you don't get all the prima dona athlete stuff!

Glad you had a great time!!!!
