More Than I Bargained For

Friday evening, I insisted that we arrive at Safeco field as soon as it opened (which means about 2 hours before game time).  The Yankees come to town twice during the season and I try to get to at least 1 game per series.  When we entered the stadium, the Yankees were warming up so I walked my little tush down the stadium right up in the front row behind the visitors dugout.  I was taking some pictures while the Yankees were warming up…

Doot do dooo stretching

Doot do doooo A-Rod  (who always gets boo-ed when he comes to the M’s)

Doot do  WHAATTT  Derek Jeter

There I am, not really minding my own business.  Taking pictures like the paparazzi.  I get my fill of photos, deciding I need a zoomier lens (displaying my novice status photo knowledge there for ya).  I’m just standing there in the front row, in a sea of men other fans and Derek Jeter is looking at me.  So what do I do you ask?…  I wave obviously.  And he freaking waves back.  That’s right looks right at me and waves back!  Lord above I thought I might just die right there.  Subsequently I smile like a dork and continue waving.  After a little more time watching warm-ups without being able to wipe the you know what eatin’ grin off my face, I figure I probably look like a creepy groupie and decide it’s time to move on.

We walk up to our seats and I text all my friends and update my Facebook alerting all of my friends that I just had a special moment with Derek Jeter….. Trust me, I’m not a dork or anything.

And to make the evening better, I ate this….. Without getting sick!

Thats right, gluten-free hotdog and bun!

Oh Yeah!  I definitely got more than I bargained for that evening!

    Haha– I can just imagine the grin on your face. There’s not really a “cool” way to stop waving and grinning, either– once you start, you can’t stop! 🙂
