Stitch ‘N Pitch 2008
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Final score: 11-6 Cards
Knitting score: Jaywalkers still not finished yet
We had a great time at the game yesterday. It was overcast (and threatened of rain) for most of the game, although some sun did peek through for a few innings. We were in the shade as well. Despite all this, I still managed to get a wicked sunburn on my arms. Ouch!
Our section filled up quickly. And at every game there’s always that one guy, you know who I mean. The one who yells in his loudest voice “I GOT IT!” whenever the opposing team hits a pop fly, or heckles people sitting near him. His name was Nick. And Nick was sitting right behind us. Lucky us. Lisa took this picture of Beth teaching him to knit with “sticks and thread” as he called it.
PNC park is really a beautiful ball park. It has a lovely view of the downtown skyline, and has really awesome surround sound. You can even text a message to someone and they’ll show it on the scoreboard!
And we had some excitement in our row, too! Bottom of the 8th. Pirates down by 5. All the sudden an errant foul ball came barreling towards Rebecca! She made a valiant effort to catch it bare handed, but it smashed into her hand so hard that it went rolling down 2 rows in front of us. And wouldn’t you know it, the guy who finally ended up taking the ball wouldn’t give it back to Rebecca, even after she showed him her swollen hand. Here she is icing her hand.
I think I may go again next year. Better play the Cubs, though!
