I had a great time at Opening Day, even though the Rockies lost (7-0 yikes).
I saw lots of “local celebrities” and did lots of people watching. I bumped into a few friends, and several texted and we met up for quick hugs and “Go Rockies!” before the game.
I only cried a little. I keep concentrating on the fact that I loved baseball before I loved Sawan, so even though baseball makes me miss him, I choose to continue to enjoy it. I kept having the thought that 50 years from now I wanted to remember that I was there with my Dad, who is probably my favorite person to watch baseball with. Even though this isn’t the way that I thought my life would go, these are the best circumstances, now, that I could be in, and in the moment I want to enjoy it, not be wishing my life away because I miss my husband.
This season Coors Field had made some upgrades to the scoreboard; I can’t quite say that they were improvements. There’s so much going on that I find it hard to read.
There were also new cans/bottles for the Coors light that they sell when the Beer Man comes around. This, however, I can say was an improvement. It was like an aluminum bottle. It was a can/bottle hybrid. A ban. Or a cottle. It stayed colder than the old plastic bottles, and had a wider opening. They were pretty cool.
Still no decision on the Pretend Rockies Boyfriend. I did see Dinger, though, and he kissed me on the cheek.
So altogether, it was a fun day. I’ll count that as a win!
