I love the Red Sox. John loves the Yankees. As one lovely older man in church told me recently, "there is therapy for that."
One team that John and I can get behind together, though, is the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. We went to a Wahoos game a couple of weeks ago for the first time and we are hooked! I can totally see this becoming one of our new favorite things to do. A Member of the Southern League, the Double-A team was originally from Zebulon, North Carolina, but moved here in 2012. They were welcomed enthusiastically by the community, and play in a gorgeous Bay-front park right downtown. Tickets are $5 for standing, and $9 for seats, which, if you are used to MLB prices, is nothing.
We went back last thursday with some of our friends in hopes of seeing Bubba Watson throw the first pitch, but unfortunately we were running a bit late. Despite that, as the days get warmer here the evenings are getting lovelier and lovelier, and we still had a great time enjoying the weather and $1 popcorn refills while we took in the game. So fun! There is nothing like going to a real baseball game-there is something so iconic about it. America's Pastime. While the Wahoo stadium isn't Fenway, it does have an incredible view and is brimming with hometown spirit. As newly die-hard Wahoos fans, we can't wait for our next visit. Go Wahoos!
