Last night, my friend and I attended the Goldeyes game, at Shaw Park.
The weather was nice, and sunny ; we had a nice walk, getting to the game.
When we got there, we were first amused by the antics of Goldie, the
Goldeyes' mascot ! It was neat to watch the players warm up, tossing the
ball to each other. It was nice to see the junior baseball players get introduced,
as well. The National Anthems for both teams were beautifully sung, and it
was beautiful to hear the applause, after each Anthem was sung .
Things turned a bit ugly, after the game began ! Sadly for me, I managed
to get sunscreen in my eyes ( again ! ) I was a bit pre-occupied, trying to
get my eyes clear of the sunscreen. I WAS able to hear some ugly sounds
(twice), as an Umpire was being booed for a call ! My friend ( who doesn't
wear sunscreen, or get it in his eyes ) commented that the Umpire must be
a Yankee ...
Tuesday night, we'll be walking to Shaw Park again, to see the Goldeyes take
on the Sioux City team.
