Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough

It's Groundhogs Day in Kate's world.

Okay, not really. That would suck because that would mean it's February, effin' cold and daylight would be at a premium.

Anyway.

I'm really jazzed because I get to go back to the Great American Ball Park for more heckling, those fabulous weiners (actually last night I was all about a brat, some sauerkraut and spicy mustard) and some Miller Lite.

I made a last minute decision to go with some people for another night of Reds versus Royals. On top of things, tonight is Barry Larkin bobblehead night (they have, like 40 thousand of those things to give to the 22 thousand fans who will show up), so at least I'll be leaving the ballpark with a cool souvenir.

Last night's game was awesome. Lots of laughs, good food, and I even managed to learn something. I asked why players could run past first plate and not get tagged out, and had no idea that was a rule that applied specifically to that bag.

The time before I learned what happened if a player got walked when there was already somebody on first base.

Yeah, so I'm like a million years behind the rest of the world. At least I'm learning.

Besides, I can always be counted on for some good cheering...

Heck, _I'M_ learning from you about things I didn't understand about baseball.

Keep going! I'm ready for my next lesson.

Then again, I should go myself. If only for the beer.

Kate-

I had no idea you were so baseball iliterate. We need to go to a game together...Legends or the Reds...I'll give you a quick girlie guide to the game and of course, we can drink beer.

Chris, welcome to the blog! I am a big fan of your photography...

Here's what I learned last night:
Apparently pitchers are the only players who can claim a win of a game, but they only get to claim a win if they pitch at least five innings.

Who knew.

NB-C... that sounds great. You should come up here for a game, and bring that wild Natalie with ya.
