Since my last post I found 1 dime and 2 pennies at McDonald's. I really didn't want to eat there, but I had an appointment in the afternoon that I was running late for, and didn't have time to make the standard PB&J for myself.
Last weekend Marti and I went to a River City Rascals game. We had planning on driving over to KC to go to a Royals game, but just didn't want to make the boring 4 hour drive to KC, so decided to hop over a few miles to the Independent Minor League team in O'Fallon, Missouri.
It was a good time, and of course one of the best parts of the game were the constant between innings minor league promotions. One of the promotions was a race between a egg roll, hot dog or burrito. But check out the game piece we got as we walked into the stadium for this race;
We ended up calling #1 - "Ethnic Egg Roll", because it looked a bit stereotypical, like something you would have seen in the 1940's. On a side note, the Egg Roll finished a distant 3rd.
One other note from the game, one of the Rascals is A.J. Van Slyke, son of former Pittsburgh Pirate Andy Van Slyke. A.J. looked pretty good, and even hit a home run over that huge wall in right field. I think I might go back later in the year and get his autograph, just for fun. Maybe look around the ballpark and see if Andy is around.
I leave you with some pictures from the game.
Total since last post - $0.12
Total for the Race - $268.23
(Just an FYI, Marti and I took a road trip to Iowa, and we have some very solid stories, pictures and change finds to report. Be on the look out for that later this weekend. Also, for those who remember our trip to Paris, Super Grover makes a return!!)
