“Here We Are, At the End…”

This was the view I had earlier tonight; the always lovely Fox Cities Stadium. This was the second to last home game of the year for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

It was also my last game of the season. Although it resulted in a win, it’s still bittersweet.

I always take the end of minor league baseball season hard; it’s a reminder of the end of summer and of good times. It’s a rather bitter pill for me to swallow. Granted, there’s always next season but that feels so far away.

The Rattlers will end their season on the road. A playoff run looks very unlikely. I probably won’t be able to see another game. But I’m already making plans for next year. I’ll be there in Opening Day, no matter the weather. The thought of that will keep me warm during the long, cold Wisconsin winter.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
