On the way to my first baseball game in St. Louis, I found 1 penny at the BP station while I gassed up the old truck.
I had a great time today at the game, and really enjoyed the new Busch Stadium. It allows you to bring soft sided coolers, water, soda and food into the park, which is a big depature from Minute Maid, where you were barley allowed to bring a glove! Everyone was very friendly, the fans were very baseball savey, and into the game. They even handed out free cups of ice in a certain section.
While the ice was much appricated, this brings me to my only knock on the new stadium, and it really isn't a fault. But today was 98 and sunny, and after about an inning, I HAD to go sit in the concourse, just to get out of the sun. I was worn out, sunburned and moist. It was very easy to find a good seat 3 rows from the dougout and in the sun, but an empty seat in the 6-10 shaded sections was not to be found. I guess the roof in Houston has made me soft!
While walking around after the game, I found 4 quarters, 1 nickel and 1 penny under various seats. I hope this trend continues, and if it does, I will gladly admit that these are the greatest baseball fans in the world!
After a day spent sweating, I stopped at a gas station on the way home for some Gatoraide and found 3 pennies.
Total for the Day - $1.10
Total for the Race - $188.88
