So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Win some, lose some

We went to the Rangers-White Sox double header tonight and watched them split the games. We even got to see five innings of no-hit baseball before Soriano broke that up with a double in the bottom of the fifth. Army of Dad met me at the airport and we were on target to arrive on time for the first game until I realized I left my purse and the tickets at my office. DOH! So, we had to turn around and go back. We made it to the third inning, so not too bad.

Walking up, we couldn't help but laugh at this sight. Let's hope that no crimes occur in the sunshine. Those are all the cops that we saw before the game.

These were the stands for the first game. This was DURING the game!

We won the first game. Hooray! Still very few people there.
The little horsey mascot. He had to be hot. Hey, there is Soriano in the background.
The White Sox centerfielder, Aaron Rowand is freaking hot. Check out that bod!

And, yet another hunky guy. AoD and me.

We had fun. We had to leave the second game in about the fifth inning because we had to get home. We made it home about 10 and watched Katrina coverage and felt awful. Of course, we felt a little awful, too, for sharing a BBQ sandwich, nachos and a pretzel. I may go find the Pepto Bismal. Ick.

    I cannot believe the stands are soooo empty.

    They might fill in some more. The Rangers are allowing anyone in for free over the next few days if they are from LA, AL, or MS. They just need to show their DL.

    Plus, that was a game that started at 4:05 p.m. on a weekday. Most folks are at work. But, the Rangers suck and no one wants to spend a small fortune to go watch a sucky team and then get sick from the expensive food. Blech.

    They actually make special ice-pack type things for mascots to wear under their outfits so they don't die.

    There are neck-wraps and vests that you can slide removable ice-packs in (so you can have a spare set freezing while you're out in the heat) and I think there are also special fans and things that will go underneath the outfit.

    Wet and cold are much worse than hot when you're a mascot.
