last night, i watched a baseball game with these people (see above foto). now, typically, when people say they watched a baseball game, they mean that they watched it via television set. but guess what: when i said i watched a baseball game last night, i meant in real life. can you believe it? did you know that was even an option? well it is. the los angeles dodgers (formerly of brooklyn, newark) have capitalized on the recent "real life viewing" trend that is sweeping the nation. they now allow you to sit in the actual place where the ballgame is played (for a small fee) and you watch it without the aid of television or internet. the technology is still a little new, so it was hard to get a sense of all the action happening on the field (or diamond, as they call it in baseball) but i think they'll have those kinks worked out by the end of the season.
what is also cool about the game last night is that we sat in the All You Can Eat pavillion. i had 3 hot dogs, 2 soda pops, some nachos, a couple handfuls of popcorn, and a bunch of cotton candy. i sort of wanted to barf.
