America’s pastime is finally here and it is a welcome sight! A lot of people I know do not like watching baseball. They claim it is boring, slow, and uneventful. Those same people will still go to a baseball game and have a great time. For some people, it’s not about the game play. It is about the atmosphere that baseball brings to our lives. I personally love the game and the battle between batter and pitcher. It’s the smell of hot dogs, garlic fries, and fresh grass. It is the taste of a cold bud light and the sound of vendors yelling “GET YOUR PEANUTS HERE” or “GET YOUR COLD BEER HERE”. When you hear that crack of the bat hitting the baseball for a home run, you get all sorts of crazy even if you don’t know what is going on.
My point is that baseball brings people together in a way that no other sport does. If you don’t like watching baseball, go to the game and hang out in the beer garden such as “The Pen” or “Edgar’s Cantina” at Safeco Field. Embrace that baseball is the start of warm weather, good times, great food, and great entertainment.
I hope everyone has a chance to get out to the ball parks this season whether it is to host a potential business opportunity, a hot date, or enjoy the greatest pastime in America.
