Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:51 am

Yeah, if that’s not a dumb name for a ballclub, I don’t know what is. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Rediculous. Anyhoo!

Last night I went to the Ranger game at Ameriquest Field. Well, that’s the name of the place, but to me, it will always be The Ballpark in Arlington like it was when it opened in 1994. Yeah, Hicks sold out to corporate interests just like every other ballclub.

We were guests at a suite in the outfield. One of the new AT members, Colby, works for a company that actually offices in the Ballpark! How cool is that!

Hi everyone!
Hey everybody!

Kids park stayed busy all night

I left at around 9:45 pm, while it was still tied 1-1 in the 10th inning. I had quite a drive home! This morning on the news they said the Rangers lost 5-1 in extra innings. One of the Angels hit a grand-slam. Bummer. But, it was still a fun game to watch, and I had a great time talking with Melissa, Matt, Travis, Jennifer, Colby and Amy. Fun times!

Tonight it’s off to Il Sole with some of the AT chicas for a wine tasting. It’s in the swanky Uptown area of Dallas, so I have to say I’m looking pretty cute and ready to have some more fun tonight! Stay tuned!

  1. I love the Rangers — though they always break my heart in the mid to latter months of the season. Glad you had fun.

  2. Wow, thanks for the pictorial tour! As someone who doesn’t get out much in the evenings, I feel like I was there! No tattoo, though. Darn.

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim? What the…?
