just a box and some old cardboard

Growing up, Dad always took us to the ball game. We'd sit a half hour in traffic, park in the back of the lot so the truck wouldn't get hit by foul balls, climb to the top of the bleachers to get sunburnt before the lights came on and polish off "firework" popsicles before the juice dripped on our legs. Along with a bucket of sunflower seeds. So now that Rob and I are making a home for ourselves in Seattle, I'm more than excited for baseball season! Local rapper Macklemore and Ryan Lewis opened the Mariners season at Safeco Field this Friday with a tribute in memory of announcer Dave Niehaus (1935-2010). It's been all over the radio and even I get goosebumps.
