Now it feels like summer. I went to a baseball game. Specifically, I saw the Cincinnati Reds play the Washington Nationals. My team lost.
But really, that’s not what it was all about anyway. It was also about the traditions. Doing the wave and the 7th inning stretch while singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Plus, it was a beautiful summer night. I was with a friend that I’ve known since I was 4.5 years old. We ate all sorts of ballpark food: pizza, nachos, a soft pretzel. And we jazzed it up with some frozen margaritas. Yum. After the game, the Cincinnati Pops played a mini concert and there were fireworks. Good stuff.
The score board.
John Morris Russell conducted the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra after the game.
And for the finale of the evening: fireworks.
