work (a snail’s pace) gave us tickets to last friday’s angels game. what an experience! when you grow up watching soccer, baseball seems like… well, literally, a whole different ball game. by the 3rd inning, however, i was comfortable enough with the rules not to mistakenly cheer for the rangers. since the game isn’t non-stop action like soccer, hubby and i had the chance to socialize with my coworkers, as well. now, to make the first game deal proper, the angels won (3-1), AND there were fireworks after the game. (note to foreigners: eating during the game is apparently just as important as the game itself.)
saturday morning a few of the “peeps” i’ve been coaching for the past 2 months ran their first race, the kevin cook spirit run 5k. it was a most memorable experience for all, and i even had three people actually manage to get off course. (click here for a map of the park). we thought that was pretty funny, and i was somewhat relieved to find out there are people out there whose navigation skills are comparable to mine.
