Redbirds Game and Sweet Ride!

We went to a Redbirds game in Memphis last night. It was great game...they won! It has been awhile since I have been to a baseball game. I believe the last time was in Montgomery for the Biscuits.

Here's the highlight of the night.... A bat flew out of the hands of a batter and hit a teenage boy in the seats!!! It was wicked! The boy was just fine and left with an autographed bat and ball. I believe he also got to watch the rest of the game in the suites or something because the staff took him and his family somewhere after he got hit.

Now to the sweet ride...We rode down there in my friends brand new Ford Expedition that is FULLY loaded. It was pretty sweet. It even had seats that chilled your butt and back! How great is that on HOT day???

I'm still driving my old chevy truck though... If you have been reading the blog for awhile, you know that I am cheap and still drive the same truck I had when I graduated college. That's OK... I love it and it's paid off! That's one sweet ride when it is paid off! LOL

Well, I better get to work. I'm actually going to go out on the weather deck tonight. I bet I look like a wet cat after I'm done with the weathercast. It is SO muggy!!!

Take care,
Ryan

I WAS AT THE RED BIRDS GAME LAST NIGHT WITH MY FAMILY. IT WAS VERY WICKED WHEN THAT BAT HIT THAT BOY; ALTHOUGH IF IT HAD BEEN MY KID I PROBABLY WOULD OF HAD ANOTHER WORD TO DESCRIBE THE INCIDENT.
IT WAS AN AWESOME GAME, AND THE WEATHER WAS GREAT!!!

Well I havent watched a baseball game in about 15 years. Big Fan Here....
My mother bought one of those expeditions that cool your butt in the summer and warm it in the winter...I dont know if that is good for the you know what or not.

Yes it is muggy it is now 11:15 sunday night and is 82 and feels like 91. A 10 heat index this late is just wrong!
Good night

You were raised better than to buy a Ford! What good is a warm or cold booty when you're broke down? Or flipped over. Or when your Firestones blow out.

Chevys have taken you places dude! Where's the love? Yukons come loaded, too!

The good thing about your truck with it being "paid off". Everytime you start it up, if you will listen real good it says "PAID FOR". Your friends vehical doesn't say that. That is the good thing about that.

I hope they young boy that got hit wasn't hurt bad, but from what you said, he wasn't. That is just to scary.

My truck says more than that when I start it Faye! That's why I need a new one! I doubt I'll have the butt coolers, but it sure would be nice!!!
