Mariner's Won!!

This may come as a surprise to you but I used to be quite the little fan of the Mariners!! Oh yes back in the days of Joey Cora (my favey), Dan Wilson, Tino Martinez, Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr, Edgar Martinez... etc. Yes, I was a mega fan, watched all the games on TV, had posters in my room and will even admit to having some of the play-off videos that I definitely watched more than once!
Sadly, I have to be honest and say that I grew out of that phase with in a few years, maybe it was when they started losing a lot?? Even though I can't list off the team roster anymore, I always take the opportunity to go to a game here & there if I have the chance. Just so happens that my good friend Lindsay of 12 years got tickets for last nights game against the Minnesota Twins for a group of girls and it was a blast!!

And the MARINERS WON! That always makes for a better time! =)

(You better believe I ATE ALL of that cotton candy) but can I just say that the prices at these sporting events are OUTRAGEOUS! I told one of the concession workers that I was going broke just to purchase myself a beverage!
And good 'ol Seattle didn't disappoint as we were leaving the game to walk the 1/2 mile back to our car. Yep, you guessed it. 
A down pour!! 
But all in all, it was a really fun time!! Thanks Lindsay!!

Ha it figures that you would buy a sweet sugar laden snack devoid of any nutritional value. Didn't your mother teach you any better??
That shot of the stadium looked kinda empty too. Not so many fans anymore?
