Fun and game in The Yard

One of the best, if not THE best, part of living so close to Baltimore is Camden Yards home of the Baltimore Orioles baseball team.Hubby was born and raised in New York City so he's been a Yankee fan his whole life. Since I had grown up with the Astros all those years when they were like Michael Jackson and wearing a glove for no apparent reason, I easily moved my loyalty to the Yankees. I had planned before we moved here that I would try to embrace the Orioles then Robbie Alomar spit in the umpire's face and that was it for me. Too much too early in the relationship.
Above is Jeter at bat. So we always try to make it out to "The Yard" when the Yankees are in town. Sad for the Orioles fans in that when the Yanks are in town there are at least twice as many Yankee fans at the stadium as Baltimore fans. It's the only time the games sell out.
I have long wanted a pink NYY cap and, low and behold, they had 'em for sale outside the stadium as we walked in. Yippie!
This was the Orioles last game of the season so there was a grand fireworks show after. The whole night was so into a good-natured back and forth with a loud, funny Orioles fan...drank THREE beers (flashback from Texas)...ate hat...had lot of fun with hubby...fireworks...the winner...not all it's about.
