Baseball, What Else?

Even Mooch is thinking baseball! If you’ve been following my blog for any time now, you might have figured out by now that I love, love, love baseball. I can’t tell you when I started to fall in love, but it was most definitely in my corporate life. I worked in man’s world when present at meetings, 99% of the time I was the only woman. Many times for team building and morale boosting, we would go to a baseball game and then another and yet another. Over time it sorta grew on me and I started to learn the game and the players so I could talk baseball with the guys. Then I used to buy a bunch of $5 tickets for opening day and did my own team building for opening day…and the rest is history.

Opening day, well if you like baseball even a bit, there is nothing like it! and it was a picture perfect day.

The sold out crowds, everybody in their Padres gear and hope springs eternal since it is the beginning of the season as you think, well maybe this is the year!

The Navy Leap Froggers who helped get this party started!

The 300 sailors who unfurl this special flag…this never ever gets old for me!

To Trevor Hoffman who fired up the crowd as they introduced this new videoboard that is huge! WOW!

Off to the game again tonight and tomorrow I promise its back to stitching…and its Saturday morning.

and until next time…keep on stitching

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?
