It took nearly an hour for the feeling to come back in my toes and nose. We're going again on Saturday and since there'll only be about 19 other people at the ballpark with us, there's going to be some migration into the sun for sure!
That hot chocolate sure looked good, but I couldn't justify $7 for what was probably more like tepid chocolate. But I sure do love the travel mug it comes in!
We had the opposite experience, sitting in Section 158 behind the Sox bullpen in the sun all day. A splendid time was had by all as we enjoyed old Sol's radiant warmth.
The remarkable thing was the length of the lines outside the men's rooms. I've been going to games for what seems like a thousand years and don't remember having to wait that long to do what needed to be done. Missed a full inning waiting in the anxious queue as I craned my neck looking toward the field or for a TV screen. Fortunately nobody scored while I was indisposed.
But how about that Chris Sale? I'd say he's a keeper.
