Saturday afternoon my friend, Maria, invited me a work event she was hosting at Minute Maid Park. Maria took one of her largest customers to an Astros game. Prior to the game, we had field passes and got to watch the Astros warm up. We also met a few players and they signed baseballs for us.
Y’all, I’m such a waste of a ticket to this kind of event. I really don’t know much about sports or any of the players but it was fun.
Funny story, my sister travels for work as much as I do. Jenn was on a flight and she was upgraded to first class. There was a man sitting next to her. They said, “Hello” and she worked on her computer the entire flight. When the plane landed Jenn was rushing to baggage claim and a passenger ran up to her and said, “Excuse me ma’am. Do you know who was sitting next to you on the airplane?” Jenn said, “No.” He said, “It was Jeff Bagwell.” Jenn said, “Who’s that?” The passenger said, “A former and famous Houston Astro.” Jenn said, “Oh” and continued to baggage claim. Ha Ha! I probably wouldn’t know who Jeff Bagwell is either but I’ve lived in Houston for 12 years and I’ve heard his name on the news.
This is Lance Berkman. Supposedly, he's good and famous. He signed a baseball for me. I'm thinking about selling it on eBay and buying a new dress. What else am I going to do with it?
Our game tickets were in a suite. There was tons of food, beer, and wine. This morning my church dress was a little tight. Ooops!
Astros cans filled with peanuts and cracker jacks. Nice touch.
