I swear. EVERY time I go to see one of my favorite sports teams play, THEY LOSE..
Usually, they LOSE BIG..
Sunday, I flew to Phoenix to meet my boy JD & see my-Indianapolis Colts play the Phoenix Cardinals.
I caught the 6:30am (YAWN) flight out of Meadows Field. Fly in to Phoenix (where I have to wait in the airport for two-hours for JD to arrive from Tucson). When JD finally arrives, he's hung-over (from the University of Arizona-Oregon game the day before). We go to the game and the Colts LOSE BY 30.
They were NEVER in the game.
& it doesn't matter what sport, or which team, when I see them play live, they LOSE.
I had the BEST time yesterday.
I CAN'T wait to do something like that with JD again!
We have a 30% chance today, a 50% chance tomorrow & a 30% on Friday.
I think it rained a litte overnight?
When I first moved here, someone told me that it ALWAYS rains in Bakersfield by Halloween. We've had TWO rainy days (so far?) this autumn. It WASN'T really "rain". It SPIT a few raindrops each time, doing little more than creating brown spots on EVERY vehicle in town. (I wish I owned Cruz-Thru Car Wash!).
I saw something the other day that we have received a little more than 3-INCHES of rain over the PAST YEAR?!
I'm pretty excited! I'm going to Phoenix Sunday to see the Indianapolis Colts play the Cardinals! &, I'm taking my boy, JD!
The Colts are my favorite team & JD has never been to an NFL game. He lives in Phoenix now & is a tobacco salesman (I call him the "Merchant of Death").
He has the world by the tail. 22-years-old, with a good-job, living with a buddy, has a cute girlfriend (pictured). Life is GOOD!
& being nine-hours away, I don't get to see him as often as I'd like.It's weird. When they're growing-up, you're around them 24/7. Then, they go off to college. And get a job. And while they no longer live at home, you think about them EVERY day.
Dads have been taking sons to ballgames for generations.
I can't wait to see my Colts (& Andrew Luck) play this weekend.
