Well, we had a good time, they're talking about them coming back in a few more years and we'll probably go that, with baby most likely. It wasn't just the game, sometimes we had no idea what was going on as we were that far from the action that you really had to concentrate and look at the scoreboard every now and then to see what was going on. They didn't always have instant replay on the big screens, so we missed a few good catches as we were just not concentrating. The home run the d-backs got in the last inning was pretty great and the entire stadium erupted, not just the fans.
Didn't have any baseball food because they were out. I think they severely underestimated how many people were going to buy the stuff. So no ice cream in helmets, they did have nachos in catchers mitts though but I think they sold out pretty fast as well. Plenty of meat pies and sausage rolls though
It was very hot at first, and we were sitting in full sun for I'd guess about two hours. We had the sun cream though we still got burnt a bit, it did eventually start to cloud over and cool. It did convince DH and myself to not ever go to the cricket there, as it would be longer and hotter as it's in the middle of summer. There were a few people around us complaining about the heat, but what would expect? It was a hot day, the game went on for a while, we knew what we were in for but apparently a lot of people didn't.
We did sing Take me out to the Ball game at the seventh inning stretch, which wasn't that long. DH and I and I suspect a few people did laugh during one of the verses as to what we should do to the "home team", we like them but not that much.
Thanks for your tips guys, had a really good day and we're both a little tired. They're calling the game a major success which makes me hope that they'll come back.
And a treat, Marcia Hines was great how her voice echoed all the way though the stadium. I heard some of the players were brought to tears. Our anthem was so much more lacklustre, but that's us.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TITt6uZqz0
