Let's Play Ball!

Today is opening day for our Cincinnati Reds. I've never been to an opening day. They always sell out. I'm sure the atmosphere is awesome on opening day. Now the Reds aren't the greatest team in baseball, but that's just fine with me. I don't watch every game that is broad casted (not all of them are). But I do enjoy watching the evening games. I love going to the stadium. There is just something about the atmosphere in a ballpark. Its fun and relaxing. The sounds are different, the smells are unique. A few years ago the Reds built a new stadium. They say that there isn't a bad seat in the house. We have sat in 3 different areas, and so far, I must agree with that statement. Its nice that you can get a cheap seat, and still see the action on the field without having to look at the jumbo tv in the corner. Ryan and I enjoy going to games. We can usually only manage 1 or 2 games a year. Between finding a sitter for the kids, and really having the time to go, it can be a bit difficult. Ryan works a lot. But you should already know that. Really, you should, because I say it at least twice a week. Baseball season also usually means warmer weather. Well not today. Temps will barely get out of the 30s today. That's not baseball weather, its football weather. I can take or leave football...and its weather. I prefer baseball and its weather. Are you a baseball fan? If you haven't had the chance to get to a Major League game, try. The local team doesn't have to be good for the experience to be worth it. Go out and support them and maybe you'll find a new fun activity to do every once in a while.
Opening day just makes me wish for spring even more. The dreary winter weather is getting sickening. I know I live in Ohio, and just because it is Spring doesn't mean that it will feel like spring. I also realize that there are places colder than us right now. But still, you get my point.


  1. Just stopping by as a new follower. I love baseball season. We are Yankee fans in this house. We are originally from Pittsburgh and while the stadium is amazing, the team is less than mediocre. Can't wait to read more


  2. I stumbled upon your blog and just wanted to say hi!!
    I'm not a big baseball fan, but I agree that the atmosphere is fun.
    However, I am a HUGE fan of spring weather, so if it could hurry up and get here, that would be great!

    Feel free to come visit my blog :)

  3. The twins also built a new stadium! I don't think i've ever been to a game, but we really do want to see the new twins stadium :)

  4. I love this post. I don't like watching sports on TV but I LOVE going to a basketball game at the stadium. So much fun! Or even my uncle's baseballs games at the park. Actually being there is FAR better then seeing it on TV!

  5. Amy, agree. It is better in person. Its just something about the atmosphere.
    Sarah, if you get a chance, try to go. If nothing else, it will be a relaxing day! And make sure you get some nachos!
