I was invited by the Washington Nationals to perform at Ladies’ Night again. Always a super fun event. It was held in a different location that it had been in the past — a tent just outside the first base gate. Lots of cool vendors and beverages. I met a few ladies from an organization called Even the Score — a company that offers “specialized trainings, corporate events, social gatherings, and matchmaking events – an impressive array of interesting and exciting opportunities designed to deepen [women’s] understanding and enjoyment of sports.” Super cool. Please check them out. I’m thinking about joining.
I got 4 tickets to sit in the Diamond Club — which was all-inclusive yummy restaurant buffet, wine, beer and stadium food. Woo-hoo! I brought along my BFF’s Kellz and DWJ, and my sports and home repairs boyfriend (and DWJ’s real hubby) Kenny — three of my absolutest favoritest people. It was pouring on the Diamond deck and the game was on rain delay so when it finally started a lot of folks weren’t paying attention… And I saw a guy get clocked with a foul ball full speed just as BFF Kellz walked from where he was to find a restroom. I saw the ball coming and I wanted to tackle her and throw her to the ground. It was like it happened in slow motion…
Thank little 8 lb., 6 oz. newborn infant Jesus that ball missed her. They had the medics and the management over to the guy that got hit in record time. Doing tests. Giving him big bags of ice to put on his head. And the guy who finally grabbed the ball didn’t even give it back to the guy who got hit. I thought that was the “foul-er” than the ball. Anyways, another fun night thanks to the folks over at Nationals Park — AND the Nats won! Can’t beat that.
Thanks so much, guys!!!
