Native People Like Baseball too.

8 08 2009

Ok I know this has nothing to do with a native journey, but hey natives are people too and we are dynamic people with various interest.  Plus native people have always engaged in some kind of sports for thousands of years.

So last night a good friend of mine and his nephew went to check out a some baseball.  It was my first game since I’ve been back in San Diego and I miss watching baseball games with friends and family.  So we headed out to watch the Padres play the New York Mets.  Being a native San Diegan I have always been a Padres fan, but I particulary don’t like the New York Mets or the Yankees, so it was gonna be interesting.

To say the least I was very pleased, despite the fact of all the Mets Fans that were sitting near me.  Hopefully they don’t plan on staying in San Diego for long.  So the game was kinda slow for the first 7 innings.  The Mets lead 2-0 for most the game, but in the ninth inning Everth Cabrera hits a grand slam home run to win the game.  The crowd went wild and suddenly all the Mets fans were gone!

After the game we stayed for some fireworks and headed home.  Even though the Pads are in last players I still give props to Cabrera for making it a great night at the ball game.
