What a FUN, FUN day yesterday thanks to having an opportunity to buy Cardinals tickets from my friend, Stephanie! The day started with an early spin class in the morning, went to my hair appointment, put on my Cardinals gear, pulled Bryn from school a little early so we could drop her off at my parent's house, and then Bob & I went to Busch Stadium for Game #3 of the Cardinals vs. the Giants! Even my band-aid from Monday's flu shot was RED!
It's CARDINAL NATION, baby! Nothin' but RED around here!
Rally towels were given out to everyone with a paid admission... and we definitely used them too! We had a blast at the game... until it started raining, that is. And actually before it even started raining at the stadium, I had a couple friends text me to tell me there were tornado sirens going off where we live... about 40 minutes away from where we were. Scary!!
Oh & here's a photo with the woman behind me that clapped LOUDLY the ENTIRE game. I mean, I'm all about clapping, don't get me wrong. I do it so much in Zumba, I've been known to literally bruise my hand from my wedding ring hitting my other hand so hard, so many times in an hour. BUT... her clap was so piercing, I wanted ear plugs. And she would keep clapping, even when there was nothing to clap about! LOL
It started POURING down rain in the 7th inning though. Did I mention I knew there was a very good chance for rain during the game, so I wore a hat & rainboots, and I brought a rain poncho? So... ponchos went on & we kept watching! Until they called a rain delay in the middle of the inning with the Cardinals up to bat & 2 men on base. Boooo!!!
We stuck around for about a half hour tops & made a really good decision to leave. It ended up being a 3 1/2 hour rain delay... in which time we had already had dinner at a nearby restaurant, picked up Bryn from my parent's house & drove home. And then we watched the end of the game... all of about 15 minutes... in the comfort of our own home! Another WINNER!!!
And we play again tonight! Go crazy, folks! Go crazy!
