Stitch & Pitch with the Columbus Catfish

Last night the Knitters and I went to Columbus Catfish game.

We had a sky box! We put a sign on the door so everyone could find us:The announcer was right next door. I took this picture of him reading the starting lineup from our balcony.
Deb and her husband John relax before the game.

This is the view out the door from the sky box. For those of you unfamiliar with Columbus' Historic Golden Park, that's the Chattahoochee River running through the center of the picture. The trees on the other side of the river are in Alabama. Bit of trivia: During the 1996 Olympics Women's Fast Pitch Softball debuted here as an Olympic event. I was a Press Ops Volunteer. It was very exciting.

Laura and I check out the balcony before the game.

Lacy and her husband, Josh, pose on the balcony following the game.

Post game photo (Julie's family left early): John, Deb, me, Lacy, and Laura. Thanks, Josh, for taking the picture.

The Catfish played the Greenville Drive. The Drive is almost my hometown team from South Carolina. They beat the Catfish 15-9. It doesn't matter. I was there for the knitting and the Knitters.

I wanted to go so badly, dangit. Harry didn't get home until almost 7:30 and then I had to help carry a literal truckload of stuff into the house while trying to keep small children out of the road and out from underfeet of men carrying furniture. It was fun.

I will be there tonight and childless.

I've never had the opportunity to view an event from a box seat. Sounds like a lovely time. (Lacy sent me, by the way).

Hey Holly!

I just wanted to say that I'm very sorry to have missed Knitting Circle on Monday. I was cleaning the house to get ready for the adoption home inspection.
