Date Night and a Battle of the Birds

Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Eutaw Street (with the iconic Bromo Seltzer Tower in the background.)

 

I must say, John and I are in prime Empty Nest form. Primo formo. Top of our game. You get the idea. We took advantage of our ability to be foot loose and fancy free and decided at the last minute to go to the Orioles game tonight. The weather was perfect. The sunny and 80 degree day cooled off little by little. The forecast called for scattered showers, but we had only a little drizzle.

I made shrimp and scallops over pasta with our new favorite Victoria Marinara Sauce for dinner. We ate and then John checked out the ticket availability. He looked on StubHub! There were plenty of seats available, which was not surprising for the first night of Spring Break for many area kids. Fortunately for us, someone was dumping their tickets for less than half price. So, we got tickets down the third base line, just past third base in Row 16 super cheap. It was awesome.

 

The game was a lot of fun. John and I shared several memories of the fun times we had bringing the kids to games when they were very little. They were so cute, and they loved the games. They were both a little stunned the first time they heard the Charge! Cheer. They were also taken aback the first time the Orioles scored a run or hit a home run, and Camden Yards exploded with loud music, and fans cheering and dancing. Well, there was some cheering and some dancing tonight, but sadly, no runs for the O's. Or “dem O's,” as some uber local Baltimore fans say. They lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 2-0. But, we had a great time, despite the result.
