It's America's game -- and I swear, in Cleveland if you aren't an Indians fan, you'd best run for cover!
So, off we went to Jacob's Field, home of the Indians, for an early summer's evening game.
Now, in Lansing, we have the Lugnuts. I don't think anyone but the diehards watch the Lugnut games -- they watch Big Lug and drink excessive quantities of beer on Thirsty Thursdays or enjoy things like the hot dog cannon.
But at an Indians game, people actually watch the game! (When not taking photos of everything going on around it!)
(Maybe that's part of the difference of living in a city that enjoys sports and a city that loves it!)
It was bobblehead night, and everyone received a bobblehead of Shin Soo Choo, who scored the first run of the night!
Everyone yells "Chooooo." (It sounds like "boo" if you're watching on TV!)
It was flashback night and the team wore uniforms of the 1920s.
I loved the graphics on the screen -- all in period.
The music was '20s and even the t-shirt tossers were dressed in '20s garb!
And some of the concessions buskers fell in line, too!
We saw a Mickey cartoon during the seventh inning stretch.
And there were, of course, lots of smiles.
And why not -- it was a win!
