The result on the field was not nearly as pleasurable. After 3 and a half innings, the Diamondbacks were behind 7 to nothing. But they kept fighting back and after 7 innings were only trailing by two runs, 7 to 5. But that was as close as they would get as the Tigers' eighth inning netted them 4 more runs, 3 coming on a towering home run by superstar Miguel Cabrera.
But we had a great time at the game. Which reminds me. What kind of food do you eat at baseball games? Hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts and nowadays in Phoenix anyway such things as pizza and Mexican food. But salad? Who eats salad at a baseball game?
Well at least this trim young woman, diving into a fresh green salad.
Speaking of tradition, there's another one, as shown in this picture.
Did you get it? It's the three men in the lower right, taking a selfie!
Speaking of photographs, I had to get one more. There was a pretty girl who kept holding up a homemade sign, hoping the cameras would spot her and put her picture up on the jumbotron. A couple of times, between innings, she went down closer to the field and held up the sign, waving it back and forth. Alas! She didn't make it to her personal 10 seconds of fame. So I went down to her row after the game and told her I'd take her picture and put it on the Internet. Here she is.
Now I ask you. How could those cynical cameramen have resisted that beautiful smile? I hope this pleases her.
