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