I decided to splurge and took three of my baseball players / students to the ballgame tonight. I decided to invite the last three kids in the locker room to the game at 6pm, and after phone calls home to mom and permission was granted, we headed down there. It was my first trip to Camden Yards this year, and I again marvelled at how fun going to baseball games is in this city. The three kids were great company, and we took turns trashtalking each other's teams.
The results sucked for me and my Tigers, but the game was still a good one - exciting late-inning heroics, and lots of home runs. We stood in the right field landing zone and had a great time. I hope to make all three games of this series, but I'm not sure if I have the energy.
I just drove all around Baltimore dropping them off, and got in pushing midnight. I'm tired and will be tired tomorrow - and my lesson plan for first period is only half formed in my head - but it was worth it. Good times.
