I took some time off of work this week, since I had an excess of vacation and I didn’t want it to go to waste. So, I took a micro vacation!
Tuesday was Pride Night at Fox Cities Stadium and with a special ticket package, you could get a Pride Night hat.
I had to get one. Just because.
The Timber Rattlers were up against the Quad Cities River Bandits, who took an early lead via the long ball to make it a 2 – 1 game. But some good hitting and a timely error by the River Bandits turned it to a 2 – 4 game for the Rattlers.
However, the River Bandits answered back, making it a 4 – 4 game. They then took the lead at the top of the fifth.
The Timber Rattlers never regained the lead. The River Bandits won it 13 – 5. Tough loss, to be honest.
I managed to grab a Pride tee shirt and a Bratzooka shirt from the team store; the Pride shirt is more of a souvenir than anything else. I don’t want to wear it and possibly ruin it.
I have more time off; I may take in another game or two this week. I just hope that the heat breaks soon.
