Julie really likes her new camera, so we don't use the old one often, so when we got our Christmas pictures off of it the other day, we found a gem, pictures of us at Sky Sox stadium watching the World Series! If you don't know, the Sky Sox are the local AAA baseball team in Colorado Springs (Minor League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies!), and Julie and I have been going to games for ages. Julie is on the Fun Committee at her work, which means that she organizes fun events for the company to do. One of these fun events was a game at the Sky Sox, which had about 150 people attend. The Sky Sox wanted to say thanks to all of the people that organized group events, so Julie got invited to watch Game 3 of the World Series at the stadium, and enjoy a lovely dinner with them.
They served us a very nice buffet of food, including half-size hot dogs, chicken wings, cheese and crackers and other stuff that I can't remember right now! The neat thing is that we got to eat dinner in the clubhouse, walk around the field (the whole thing!) and walk through all of the suites, basically a self guided tour of the stadium, with food and drink!!
After eating, I went to take a few imaginary swings at the plate. Home Run!!!!
We even got to violate posted rules by eating in the clubhouse!!
We even shared an elevator ride with Sox the Fox, the best mascot in the whole world! We had a really good time!
Alright, I think that we are caught up on our blog posts now, expect more as the holidays progress!
