For the love of sports.

Well, love of sports may be a bit of an exaggeration, but since moving to Vegas I have taken more of an interest. Maybe it's the fact that golf and tennis can be played outdoors almost year-round. Maybe it's because you can bet on anything and everything at the sports book. Maybe it's because every bar within a 100 mile radius of your house has Monday night football specials or maybe it's because there's always a party going on when a sporting event is on? I have watched more baseball, football, and UFC fighting since I moved here and have also played more tennis and Alan has played more golf than practically our whole lives put together. So, when my co-worker, Mike told me I would be joining him and two other guys from our company for a putt-a-thon I said okay without laughing too hysterically. Granted, I don't even know how to hold a golf club, but quickly caught on and while I realized I TOTALLY SUCK AT IT, it was a fun way to spend a few hours away from the office. However, I don't think I will be joining Alan anytime soon on the golf course. I will stick to tennis or the spectator sports!
Mike went to the University of Hawaii on a golf scholarship. Yep, he was good. Chester is on the left. We all had many good laughs at each other's expense.

After playing, I hustled all the way to the other side of the valley and did a quick change into jeans and flip flops. Alan and I headed to Cashman Field to see the Las Vegas 51's and to also hang out with our friends from Chicago. As you can tell it was a picture perfect night!
Picture perfect night except for this sad looking margarita. Sure it was $1 beer night, but was that good enough for me?! Noooooo, I had to have margaritas. I'm sorry Bud or Bud light just doesn't do it for me. Katy remembers (or maybe not) how good these margaritas are since we had one or two at the game the last time she was in town!
Our friend, Rose was trying to get on camera. She got up between every inning and danced and shaked her booty, but alas, no picture appeared on the jumbotron. The 51's loss because she is a very funny girl.
