Take Me Out To The Ball Game (70 miles away)

Last night, Ted and I drove to Frederick, Maryland to see our beloved Potomac Nationals vs Fredrick Keys .  Joining us for the outing were fellow blog buddies, Nik and Victor.

 I found myself comparing the Frederick Stadium to the  Pfizner Stadium. Although, the Frederick Stadium was more modern, had nicer seats and more capacity, I found that it just wasn't as inviting an environment as Pfizner Stadium.  Don't get me wrong, we had a good time, but the little touches were missing.  For example; the PA announcer wasn't nearly as fun as the one at Pfizner Stadium, the Fredrick guy didn't excite the crowd, he didn't play music clips or sound effects that are so very popular at Potomac home games.  At Potomac National games, there are mini contests and events between innings and there is ALWAYS a winner.  At the Key's game, it's "oh well, sorry you didn't win, better luck next time". 

You might say, well I wasn't cheering for the home team last night, so maybe I just didn't get into setting as much as others, that just wasn't so.  I didn't feel immediately at home, a welcomed guest, instead, just another face in the crowd.  I throughly enjoy and look forward to going to P Nats games, so I think for the most part, I'll enjoy them were I feel more at home.

By the way, I thought I had broken my jinx, the P Nats were tied 5-5 at the end of the ninth and went on to score 3 in the top of the tenth.  I was hopeful that they wouldn't loose a game that I attended, but sadly, the Keys had their own rally in the bottom of the 10th and won game.  Oh well....Bunny
