Baseball, Hotdogs, Apple Pie and the Illini

July 17, 2010

Tonight the whole family is heading to the ballpark to watch the Timber Rattlers, the Brewer’s farm team, take on someone (?).  The truth is, I’m not much of a baseball fan, but when I heard the Fox Valley Illini Club was getting together to watch the game, I knew I was in.  

As I’ve mentioned before, being a University of Illinois graduate ranks right up there on my “Top Ten Things that Bring Me Joy” list.  I definitely bleed orange and blue up here in red and white land. 

I’m excited to meet other Illinois graduates who have been relocated to Wisconsin.  We might have to start an ILL-INI cheer which will undoubtably confuse pretty much every other person at the game.  I’m not sure what colors the  Timber Rattlers are, but I’m wearing orange and blue.  John said “no” to face paint, though.  Rats!

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

    Playing the Great Lakes Loons. T-Rats colors are black and maroon- no orange or blue. Hope you catch a brat out of the bratzooka!
