Take Me Out to the Ball Game...

Last night hubby and I went to a ball game!

Here is the team pre-game... it was hot out there!

We played a (minor league) team from New Jersey. Being a Jersey girl at heart I wasn't sure who to root for. Just kidding. I was rooting for the home team!

It was so hot I had to move to the top row where there was a breeze.

Hubby was having a great time. He said this was the FIRST professional game he had ever been to. I was so happy we decided to go.

We took part in the 7th inning stretch! Hubby had NEVER done this before. Isn't that amazing?

This old tune was a lot of fun:

"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."

Click here to read the history of this song... I laughed when I read it. It was written on a train ride to New York in 1908.

It just proves to me how much I love good 'ol Americana, vintage memorabilia, and nostalgia. Guess I'm in the antique biz for a reason!
(Humming.....Take- me- out- to- the ....)

We have several minor league teams nearby and we love going to the games. My husband is a HUGE baseball fan! It looks like you had a great time!

I really miss our home team "The Surf" - we had good times at those games! Glad that you and DH had a good time at your game! By the way, who won? The Jersey Boys? LOL!
