The last time I went to a Major League Baseball game, the Twins were in the playoffs and the stadium where they played was actually a dome with a funny looking roof. That was about eleven years ago! That dome still exists (sorry Vikings). This time, it doesn’t look like the Twins have much of a chance to make the playoffs. But I have to say that the stadium situation has been upgraded in a big, big way. Target Field looks great and creates a fun atmosphere for the game.
Having said that, the truth is that the best part about the evening had nothing to do with baseball. The best part was spending time with friends that we hadn’t seen for a very long time. A summer evening, a baseball game, and good friends; what more could we ask for?
The next morning was full of more happy reunions when we went to a place of special importance to us- Prairie Oak Community Church. All the kids look older, all the men look exactly the same, and the all the women look even younger than before! That almost sounds like something Garrison Keillor would say, which makes sense since we’re in Minnesota. Go Twins!
