Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Lance and I went to a Mariners - Twins game at Safeco Field last night. Being a Twins fan, Lance received some good-natured ribbing from the Mariners fans. As we were parking in the garage, the woman who looked at our parking reservation said that Twins fans park on level 7. There is no level 7. So of course, we didn't see why it was funny until we realized that level 6 was the top.

Anyway, Safeco Field is a great ballpark. Behold.

And yes, I took this picture from our seats. 19 rows behind home plate.

Minnesota's starting lineup. I took this for Lance's benefit.

A bad picture of the Mariners moose.

Play Ball!

They had to close the roof due to a projected forecast of rain...good thing too, it was pouring when we left.

Anyway, the one thing I'll take with me about Safeco Field... it smells like garlic fries. And that's not a bad thing. We ate pizza though, which wasn't anything to write home about. And we got a huge bag of kettle corn.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, indeed. Ballpark food is much more sophisticated now. And expensive...

The Twins lost. Too bad. But we had a good time, and that's all that matters.
