You know what today is? That’s right- Opening Day! I notice a pattern every year…I blog about baseball riiiiight around April because I’ve been waiting for baseball season for the last six months…Just like I wait and wait for wedding season every year- the anticipation just kills me!
This year’s a little different, though, for the following reasons:
1) The mets AND nats are currently fighting for first place in the NL East (I know, I know- it’s only Opening Day, but give me a break here!)
2) I finally made the plunge and bought season tickets for the Nats (sorry, Mets! You’re too far away!)
3) My seats give me a perfect view of Shortstop, Ian Desmond’s butt (see para below for more details)
4) I held a baseball-themed party, which gave me an awesome excuse to buy two very large boxes of Super Pretzels. Seriously, folks- I will find any excuse possible to buy soft pretzels. I’m not kidding.
Next week will be my first game at Nats park as a Season Ticket holder and I could not be more excited! I get to yell, “I looooove you, Iaaaaan!” from my very own seats. I mean, I obviously couldn’t have some other girl sitting in those seats during other games yelling at Ian too…now that just wouldn’t be right. For those of you who don’t know about my slight crush (ok fine, full out crush) on shortstop, Ian Desmond, I’ll let you decide what you think. Oh, but don’t worry, I have NOT forgotten about David Wright, my number one faaavorite baseball player.
I split the tickets with a few other friends, so of course we had to throw a baseball-themed game draft party- here are a few pics from the night:
