Baseball Waiting

Rockies (Colorado) & Reds (Cincinnati) played on Sunday after I started this post in the morning, in line with my kiddos to buy $4 tickets .  In line @ 10, we were sitting / standing / people-watching / talking about life.   The ticket-scalpers slickly & silently showed up.  Baseball waiting.  Two hours later (noon), we scored the tickets, and met up with the visionary of our family, the olympian mother-wife.  Another two hours later, 2pm, the game was on.  We (Rockies) started off okay … but the second inning belonged to Cincinnati.  Then, in the bottom of the third inning, WHACCCKKKKK!!!!!.  And again, WHACCCKKKKK!!!!!.  And again, WHACCCKKKKK!!!!!  We had ten runs in that wonderful third inning!  Three of those were home runs, from Arenado, Gonzalez, and Paulsen.

 Following the game there was a concert there on the field.

For the most part, I do not like waiting.  I sometimes miss the profound truth that there are, really, some things worth waiting for.  I have been reminded … to keep my eyes on the ball, so I don’t miss it.
