Out With the Crowd

So this was where I was on Saturday. It was the home opener for the Timber Rattlers and Prime and I had tickets.

As for the game: it was fairly quick, as we were watching a pitcher’s duel. Both teams were pitching extremely well, so it wasn’t until the late innings that the Rattlers pulled ahead. But once they got the lead, they kept it.

Time for a brand new, handy dandy little guide to life that I like to call “How Not to be a Garbage Human”: when you’re attending a social function, such as a baseball game, and you notice these things called “chairs” do everyone a favor and use them. Standing in front of a door or a window is not only obnoxious, but potentially dangerous, as blocking an egress can cause you to be trampled in an emergency. Think of someone else, not only yourself, unnamed drunken white female who looked pissed that I called her out on being a Garbage Human. It doesn’t take much effort to not be an asshole; maybe try that next time and try to limit your beer intake. You might have a few dozen brain cells survive into your forties, if you’re lucky. (But I doubt it.)

The giveaway was a Lorenzo Cain bobblehead, which was available for all fans. Prime and I nabbed ours and checked the team store before hitting the Fox Club. Fun? Hell yeah! And this is just the beginning!

Final score: Cedar Rapids – 0, Timber Rattlers – 2

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.
