It was Royals opening day in the Osterhaus household!!! In other words, the first Royals TV appearance. And while I might not be a huge baseball fan, I do love everything about the Royals and baseball season. I love hot summer nights heading for Kaufman stadium (hello, beer and hotdogs…even before pregnancy, my life revolved around food!) . I love fireworks Friday. I love the crowds, the fact that you can always buy cheap tickets last minute (yea, I know it’s a sign that we suck, but hey we’ll look on the positive side of things!), the tailgating with good friends. And I also love watching the Royals on TV. This probably stems from the fact that baseball is a relatively slow, low key game and therefore Ryan tends to be a bit more reserve while watching as compared to other sports (during more intense games, he sometimes yells at the TV, sending Lynnie, poor old girl, into hiding for most of the evening). I love that we can hang out watching the game, while I catch up on reading, internet surfing, or just vegging out. I love that it’s such a slow sport that I don’t have to pay much attention yet can still carry on a somewhat intelligent conversation with Ryan when he does get overly excited about a good play. :) And I love that the start of baseball season means summer is right around the corner!
So last night, we made plans to watch the baseball game together - and I had a chance to flip through the numerous books I am currently reading. Plus the best husband in the world treated me to my latest obsession............TCBY!
We've already decided one of our first "adults only" nights out this summer will be a baseball game. Ohhh, I can't wait!
