Twins/Brewers Game

As I am sure you have all noticed our lives haven't been very exciting lately. Summer is right around the corner, so hopefully work slows down a little and we get to enjoy summer a little bit. On Friday I won tickets to the Twins Brewers game at the new Target Field. Neither Patrick or I are big baseball fans, but we have both been wanting to go to a game sometime this year. It worked out well to win tickets to the border battle, since that seems to be a constant theme in us attending sporting events this year.

Since the tickets were free, we decided that we would eat at the stadium. The food selection is much better than at the Metrodome, which probably explains why we easily spent $48 on food and drinks.

We were both pretty excited about going to the game, so we stopped at the mall before the game to get baseball apparel. Patrick was on a mission to find a Brewers t-shirt, but Wisconsin themed attire is hard to come by in Minnesota. He settled for Twins t-shirts. Here we at the field with our new shirts.

And here is the view from our seats, not bad for free tickets.

Like I said before, I am not a big baseball fan. Most of the time I find it quite boring. This was probably one of the more entertaining games I have been to. The Twins scored 7 runs in the first inning. They retired the Brewers pitcher before the inning even ended. The Twins ended up winning the game 15-3.

And here is Joe Mauer, this guy is only a year older than me and he just signed a eight year, 184 million dollar contract with the Twins. It's crazy they pay anyone that much to play baseball.
