Well, for the most part. The game was long (3 1/2 hours) and boring and the Jays lost - but other than that it was wonderful.
When Ryan our youngest heard last night that we might not make it, he called and gave Ron the "are you nuts!!! Of course your going, I'll be by at 9:00 to pick you up" speech. Part of me was terrified but part of me cheered.
We left at 9:30 - Ryan drove - and it was a smooth ride down. He dropped us off at Rogers Centre (Sky Dome) so we didn't have to walk far. The seats were excellent!! Right at first base so we got to see Carlos Delgado. I always liked him and was most saddened when he left. It wasn't too crowded in the section we sat in and we had the front row. Once the sun hit where we were sitting, we moved back a few rows to the shade and it stayed shady. Before we left, I made him put on sun screen. He really didn't want to, but I said no sun screen, no game.
Ron had a large slice of pizza and a hot dog at the game. He hasn't been eating much so that was so encouraging. PLUS - he had a couple of beers. Costly they were, but again it was most encouraging. Both our sons also went; the oldest Brent came with a friend and Ryan brought his not his girlfriend, girlfriend (long story - they were going together, broke up and now it seems that they are back together although he denies they are anything but friends. I hope they are back together though 'cause I really like her). It's the first time I've been there since it changed names and I must say - I really liked the changes they made. They still should have kept the old name though.
Finally the game ended and we had to wait for a while before Ron's team took the field. When I saw him go out to coach first at the Roger's Centre (Skydome) it was good, it was very, very good. He only lasted 3 innings before he had to call it quits but that was enough. He was thrilled! We left at 9:30 am and didn't get home until 7:30 pm; a very long day for him, but for today we were able to forget and that was most glorious!!!!
