SUBJECT: The view from our seats/The scoreboard
My dad gave us tickets for the ball game tonight…Section 153 Row 1. The first section behind the field boxes. Not too shabby of seats. HandsomeHusband had a meeting, so it was just me and the kids. Being the frugal person I am, we parked at my brother’s work and brought in our own water and sodas in a soft-sided cooler. We spent $20.00 for 3 hotdogs and a pretzel, $6.00 for cotton candy, $6.00 for ice cream and $5.00 for peanuts and sunflower seeds…oh, yeah and I bought myself a beer-$8.75 including tip…so that’s $42.75 for the evening. Not bad considering! We were witness to Matt Holliday’s first game as a Cardinal and we ended up beating the Los Angeles Dodgers who have the game’s best record (62-37). Go Cards!
