We bought our programs from the surly dude outside the Dome who has been selling them there forever!
With our programs in hand, we headed on in!
Over the Yankee dugout singing the American and Canadian national anthems.
Catching up with Maureen! She is our favorite usher and was working one section over from us.
The Dome was open and a beautiful sky sat above us as the game went on below. At this very moment, I was feeling extremely lucky to be living in Toronto and especially to have been born in Canada.
Things got off to a rocky start. Naaz and I had a bit of a hard time getting going. She had some difficulties filling out her Blue Jay roster and I was so distracted by the different coloured markers that I had to keep asking Naaz to fill me in on the plays. In the meantime, the Yankees kept hitting home runs. GROAN! Naaz makes her feelings known on her card.
When you are scoring the game, you really can't take time out and stop. Naaz and I steal a moment together.
During the seventh inning stretch there was a flashback of Joe Carter just after his 1993 World Series winning home run! His smile is ELECTRIC!
Naaz wants this hat. Wondering if we can incorporate it into her wedding festivities in some way...
Game's over and look what we've done!
My completed score card, filled with doodles and random thoughts...
My Jays were especially awful tonight. The bullpen was terrible but as usual...it was SO MUCH FUN!
Check out the impressive Yankee performance. They won 11-5.
Thanking my Toronto Blue Jays for another entertaining night at the ballpark.
Thank you to the kind Scott Buck (no relation to John Buck) and his Mom (in her Yankee hat) for scoring two innings for me so I could relish a hot dog. They are Torontonians with roots in New York. They cheer for the Yankees when they are in town. I love it when I get good seatmates!
And the biggest thanks of all to my Naaz. I love that we can be nerds together, laugh out loud, dream about outrageous centre pieces and appreciate a good Crunchy Cheeto.
