This weekend we secretly went to a New York Yankees versus Texas Rangers game among other things for our anniversary. Sunday has been a long time Yankees fan and I am a casual fan as well. Although once we got there and found many people also wearing Yankees attire, I thought we would be the only ones. I told Sunday that if she had any doubts about how much I love her that she should not doubt that I was going into the Rangers Ballpark wearing Yankees shirts. I was surprised how many Yankees fans were there. I actually liked both teams and had a pretty good time. The Rangers won the game but it was a fun time anyway. The only negative thing about it was how humid it was the whole night. The game did not end until after midnight and it never cooled off the whole night. In this image, the stadium looked empty but that was because it was taken over an hour before the game started.
The photo above was taken from inside the shuttle bus taking us to the stadium from our hotel. It really is a pretty stadium and something worthy of seeing.
In this image, you can see the line of people waiting to get into the stadium and hour and a half before the game started. This was on the East side of the stadium and the crowd went all the way around to the Northeast corner. On the other side of the stadium there were even more people lined up.
Here you can see the line after we joined it. We are on the East side looking to the North. The bright side of this wait was that it was in the shade blocking the sun. Even waiting in the line was pretty fun as most everyone was in a good mood.
As much as I hate the Dallas Cowboys, I had to take this picture of their stadium as seen from the top of the Rangers Ballpark since they are both in Arlington, TX.
In this picture I wanted to show what Six Flags over Texas looked like from the top of the Rangers Ballpark. You cannot see all of it but you can see a couple roller coasters from this vantage point.
In this photo you can see Ramiro Pena of the Yankees swinging at the ball. Again, the Rangers won the game but at this point the game was 2 – 1 Yankees.
In this picture you can see the former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura sitting in the VIP section below. Notice how they have a net in front of them. I guess it does not look good if a former President gets hit in the face with a baseball. All in all we had a good time. My wife bought these tickets a long time ago so we had this planned for a while. Our anniversary is not until the 21st of September but since they were going to play on this day we had to go early. Being with Sunday is always a treat and we had a good time. I hated to leave but that pesky old work requires it. .
We stayed in a hotel directly across the street from Six Flags on the East side. I am certain we put on a hundred pounds each while eating junk food at the game along with our normal meals. It was really fun though. As with any of these photos that I post on here, you can click on them and it will take you to the full album of 161 pictures on Flickr. Some are good and some are not so good. I posted them all and you can ignore the bad ones.
