Last night Billy and I ventured over to the D to see the Tigers game. Of course we went over early to experience some bars (and homeless beggars). Fun, well, not the homeless beggars, but the D has some exceptional dive bars, which I am a fan of (the Detroiter, The Detroit Pub and The Old Shillelagh just to name a few…)
Friends met us at Cheli’s and when we arrived in the stadium the score was already 5 – nothing for the Dodgers – but the Tigers made a huge comeback and won.
I’m not a baseball fan – I do like the atmosphere and when something exciting happens, but in general I find baseball about as exciting watching paint dry. There were a bunch of foul balls that hit off the upper deck and came near us (we were the section closest to the first base, 16 rows up – very good seats). One ball in particular hit off the upper deck and came right at us, nearly hitting the man in front of us who happened to be the father of the Dodger’s pitcher who was pulled after allowing 5 runs in the second inning.
So that was exciting.
It was a good night.
Yeah for summer funs!
