Ever since I have been together with Rob, I have learned to like baseball. Never before was I able to sit and watch this sport. I found it boring, only because I did not understand it. I am now one of the wives who will diligently sit and listen to the games on the XM Radio or watch it on tv or in person. Out of the three I love watching the game live in baseball stadium. I don't know what it is. I love the smell that the stadiums have, the obnoxious concession calls from the stands, the smell of the popcorn, the $10 beers, and the little kids experiencing their first live game. There is just nothing like it. It is great when my team is winning, but yet I still support them when they are the bottom team in the league. I never thought I would be a person who would have knots in my stomach when the game is tied, bases loaded, and there are two outs. Here I am sitting on the edge of my seat with my fingers crossed hoping that the player at bat can hit a grand slam (home run that gains 4 runs *for all of you non-baseball watchers*) and win the game. I love the game though. It is fun to watch, now that I understand the game. So the next time there is a baseball game on the tv...take a moment and watch some of it. Or even better...if you get tickets for a Minor or even Major League game...take advantage of it and enjoy some junk food at the ballpark for three hours.
