I would have bet my next paycheck that tonight's item for the 50 Things to Do list would NOT happen. It rained here today ... all day ... buckets and buckets and buckets and buckets of rain. I called the stadium to make sure the game was still on for tonight, and I was almost disappointed that it was. It's just a tad cold, and I could easily have piled up in the recliner and played Mario. I had planned a completely different blog topic for tonight, and I almost went ahead and wrote it at school today because I was just that sure that the game tonight wouldn't happen.
The 50 Things to Do police might question whether tonight even counts for my list. It was a UGA baseball game against Alabama, but it doesn't count as a conference game, and it wasn't played at the UGA field. That was one of the reasons we went to this particular game - it was played at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves, the AAA farm club for Atlanta. The stadium is only three years old, and it is a beautiful field. It is actually closer for us to drive there than to go all the way to campus in the other direction. We still plan to go to a game at Foley Field, where UGA home games are played, but it will have to be warmer. And probably not on a school night.
Dawgs led 4-0 after the first inning and 6-0 after three. Then I jinxed them by asking if there's a run rule in college ball, and Bama scored three quick runs. We left because it was either raining lightly or misting heavily, and it was still 6-3 when we got home. I'm listening to the last inning (I hope) on the computer even as I type this.
I think there were just as many Bama fans - if not more - than Dawg fans. What's up with THAT? I am pretty sure all the students weren't in their dorms studying, and it isn't THAT far to drive.
Here are a few pictures to document the fact that we were indeed there. Hello, chins! And you'll just have to wait until tomorrow night to read about another one of my bizarre dreams.
