Aperitif of Nothing


I believe it.

As I mentioned before, Prime and I hit another Rattlers game. Since Prime got off work early, he dropped by Costco, grabbed me, and we headed to Fox Cities Stadium. We got there early. How early? Well, the gates weren’t even open yet!

Like I said, early. Batting practice for the Clinton Lumberkings.

More batting practice. I couldn’t believe that I was close to the action!

A souvenir. As I was watching, one of the balls skidded to the wall and bounced back. I mimed trying to grab it and half pouted, but laughed, when I couldn’t. One of the guys shagging balls for the Lumberkings asked, “You want a ball?” I replied, “Yes, please!”

So he gave me one. Remember: being polite always helps. 🙂

The game was not as kind to the Rattlers, I’m afraid. Clinton has a better team and a better spot in the standings. But the TRats did try and make a game of it; they tied it, but the Lumberkings came back in the top of the ninth with a pair of two run homers.

Final score:
Clinton Lumberkings – 7
Wisconsin Timber Rattlers – 3

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.
