On Wednesday we all met at the Stadium in KC to have a dress rehearsal. A 4 hour practice!!! Well it was worth it. It was actually fun. There was a lot of waiting so in the mean time I took pictures. We got see a preview of the video they put together for the show. We were the first public eyes to watch it because it was a big secret!
Well I anxiously waited for Friday to come along as I was really excited to feel the rush of being on the field and hear the thousands of fans in the stands. My friend Carlin and I met up early and joined the many tailgaters in the parking lot. When I mean early I mean early. We were there around 1130am. (we had to be there by 1400.) We walked around and enjoyed the smell of the barbeque's going. We eventually made it into the stadium and walked around and around and around. We made it down to the dugouts were we got to watch practice.
Last year I was at a game and caught a foul ball. Well I brought this ball back with me and I'm sure glad I did. I got three autographs from the royals. Which included Miguel Olivo catcher, Alex Gordon infielder, and Trey Hillman manager of the Royals. I do have to say I am a big Yankee fan but unlike the yankees the royals were right there for autographs. Damm those Yankee's who make to much money and think they are to good for autographs (Had to get that out)
Well it was time to meet up in the tunnel with the other AF people to get ready for the show. Each of us got in are positions with the 100ftx50ft flag to go out on to the field. We walked onto the field to hear the crowd roaring. What a feeling that was. We were against the outfield wall until everyone got in there spots. The had a very nice opening to the pre game show.
It was probably one of the best baseball games I have ever been to! The Yankees beat the royal 4-1 so i was happy.
I want to take this time to to thanks all the kind people at the game who bought my food, beers, drinks and Ice cream. That was so thoughtful. I didn't have to pay for one thing!
