Take Me Out To The Ballgame

06.04.14

… or at least give me a hotdog and a beer, yes, that shall work. What a Baseball-Filled summer it has been! And surprisingly .. i’m not complaining! We went to the Boston Red Sox Vs. Cleveland Indians game about a month ago in Cleveland. Last week we went to see the Akron Rubber Ducks with a group of our work friends. I enjoyed both games and i’m excited to get to see another Cleveland Indians game this 4th of July!

It’s no secret that i’m not a big sports fan. Nothing wrong with sports i just don’t get into most of them. The only exception being WWE. Well, last year when Boston went to the World Series and i sat through numerous games to make the boyfriend happy i started to get into it (hopefully he’s not reading this). I enjoyed the games, i enjoyed the enthusiasm, and oddly enough i actually could understand simply enough what was going on.

Not understanding the game is probably one of the biggest reasons for not being very into spots. For example, Football, I have NO IDEA what is going on. I understand the basics of get the football from one end of the field to the other end of the field without getting the living daylights sacked out of you but i don’t understand the logistics of the game. Downs? What the hell is a down? I’ve never figured that out. The numbers on the field. Why? Don’t get those either. Thus, my lack of understanding is probably the reason i don’t enjoy watching those sports.

We don’t watch a lot of the Boston games simply because we don’t get them on our local TV. I think that certain ESPN channels may get them but we don’t subscribe to anything beyond the basic 1000 channels, lol. Instead we actually listed to the games! You can download the MLB app on your phone and for a small monthly fee we can listen to all of the games. I think that you can actually watch them to but i’ve never played around with that feature because it’s on my phone. Ain’t nobody got time for that?!

I even bought a baseball glove to play catch with the boyfriend! I admit i’m a bit afraid of the ball (don’t hate) but i enjoyed the one time we’ve actually done it. He was actually a bit worse than i thought he would be (again.. i hope he’s not reading). Then again, he doesn’t play all that often himself.

How is your summer going?! Anything exciting going on over the next few months?
