Rocktober '09


So Charlie and I braved the cold last night to go watch the Rockies play. We originally had tickets to see Saturday's game. Since it was so cold on Saturday they postponed the game to Sunday night. I have to say, I'm really glad they did because I barely survived sitting through 5 hours of 20 degree weather. I can't imagine what it would have been like if it was 10 degrees colder. Charlie thinks I'm a huge baby, but I'm always cold. Always. I wear sweaters and scarves when it's 60 degrees out. I was looking around at people last night in sweatshirts, thinking they were absolutely crazy.

Anyway, despite the cold (& the loss) we had a great time.

National Anthem. Before things got really cold.

go Rox.
Massive amount of balloons. I'm sure releasing that many balloons at once is just fabulous for the earth. I hear rubber degrades almost as fast as plastic.

Our first playoff baseball game. (The O's haven't made it to the playoffs in a looong time.)
This was before I added 3 hoods, 2 pairs of gloves, and a comforter. Charlie didn't even zip his jacket up.

coldest playoff game.
Even though we lost it was a really good game. And depending on what your source is it was either the coldest playoff baseball game in history or tied for the coldest.

I am EXACTLY like you. I am the girl who wears jeans, a fleece and wants a blanket to wrap around me in the summer. There is no way I would have been able to sit outside for that long to watch a game! It sucks for those of us who get so cold, because like you said, everyone labels us as babies and no one really understands! You're better than me at least, because I wouldn't have even debated the game. It would have been a quick and swift "no" to going. :)

My feet would have gone numb about halfway through. And chris would have forgotten his jacket at home and been fine. Stupid boys.

glad you had fun- I am totally jealous. Well- not of the cold- but that you got to go!
