Metal Umbrellas

The clouds in the background look ominous, but the sun broke through and everything turned hot, hot, hot. We spent the first part our day at Six Flags Great Adventure and Safari. A couple of mocha coffees and walks through the park got me through the heat. No, I did not take a trip along the roads of the safari adventure. I've taken that in more than a few times and have had my fill of giraffes licking bugs and crap off the windshield and animals copulating everywhere. Nuff said. In the evening, we were off to Citizens Bank Park and a game between the hometown Philadelphia  Phillies and the Florida Marlins. Final score 7-4 the 'good guys'. It wasn't an exciting game... and I thought the Red Sox were struggling this summer. How far this franchise has fallen since the glory years and their World Championship in 2008. I still recall that summer of '61 when they were on the losing end of 23 straight games, still a major league record. 
Back at the hotel at 11:30ish, the kids crashed.
The relentless heat, less than nutritious food all day and 9 innings of the ol' ballgame had taken it's toll.
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

  7. Looks like those metal umbrellas make good lightning conductors. That would be an exciting event. Probably would even wake you up.

  8. A night at the ball park is still good even if the game isn't good!
