I’ve really enjoyed wandering down to the park with Don on the last couple of Sunday afternoons to watch the Sydney Winter baseball league games. And fortunately before we became completely bored with it – today was the Grand Final.
It was absolutely freezing compared to past weeks, so we suitably geared up in coats, scarves and hats and brought along my (former**) park reading blanket.
It was a pretty intense and relatively fast-paced game and a much higher standard than the previous two we’d watched. The score was 0-0 until the bottom of the 9th when LocalSportsTeam hit a home run and there was much rejoicing among the 100-or-so spectators.
I say this all the time, but I do need to get out in the neighbourhood more. There’s a whole bunch of suburban stuff going on that we’d never ordinarily discover and that doesn’t really appear on the InformationSuperHighway.
Now we wait for Local Cricket to start.
** I now have precisely zero chances of reading in the park at lunchtime, so admitted defeat and brought it home.
