Astros Game


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?



Maria's son and his friend. The friend told Maria it was the best day of his life. So cute.



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!



The table center pieces were Astros cans filled with peanuts and cracker jacks. Nice touch.






View of downtown... the prettiest downtown sky line I've ever seen. One of my favorite parts of an Astros game is the singing. Of course, we sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." We also sing, "Deep in the Heart of Texas." So fun!

To add to the plane story... I was pretty glad Jeff was not talking to me. I kept thinking - I hope this guy leaves me alone so I can work... I'm sure he was thrilled to be sitting by me and not some know-it-all-baseball fan. Looks like a fun game...

You ALWAYS have the best times! - I'm jealous. And your dress fit tighter (yeah right) - you're too funny! And Jenn is so funny too - what a great story.

I am a huge baseball fan and that event looks like so much fun! That is really cool that you got to take photos and meet some of the players.

I love the dress you wore :)

I love going to baseball games. Y'all look too cute! I love ice cream in the ball cap bowls - we got that a looooooong time ago at an Angels game in CA. I think I might even still have the bowl!

What a fun time! I'm with you when it comes to knowing absolutely nothing about sports, but it's still fun to go and hang out with friends! You should sell the ball on ebay for sure!
