Take Me Out to the Ball Game

"Take me out to the ball game, Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack, I don't care if I never get back, Let me root, root, root for the home team, If they don't win it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out, At the old ball game."

Our first Orioles game was a blast! Don't get me wrong we are still Colorado Rockies fans at heart but as long as the Orioles aren't playing the Rockies we can root for them, right? I don't even think they are in the same league but who knows? And BTW can you really still buy cracker jacks at the ball field? We did get $1 hot dogs and $1 sodas for the kids and I got a yummy pretzel dog (recommended in a Baltimore Sun article) and funnel cake. It rained all day but the weather was a bit cool but otherwise perfect. I know this won't be our last trip to Camden Yards. Too bad it is freaking expensive to take a family of 5 anywhere. Oh well, we had a blast!

We don't have a pro team here in Arkansas but we do have a couple minor league teams and I LOVE going to the games! You're right though, it can get expensive--but it's so much fun!
