One of the perks of being a DFW Chevy Girl is that I will occasionally score tickets to fun events, like Chevy Fan Day at Texas Motor Speedway, the Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton concert and, most recently, the Texas Rangers ALDS Playoff game against Tampa Bay.
I was SO EXCITED when they offered me the tickets… and so was The Nerd. He may look pasty white because he never goes out in the sun, but that boy LOVES playoff baseball.
We invited a couple of friends to attend the game with us, and made a weekend out of it! Luckily, nesting has been encouraging me to clean house all week and our home was actually prepared for visitors without much last-minute cleanup, for once.
We headed to the game Saturday night and had a BLAST.
The fans were WILD. The Rangers had lost Friday night, so we were all ready for a comeback. It was SO LOUD in the stadium… I’ve never been to a baseball game that intense.
We were behind at the beginning but an AMAZING Fourth Inning put us ahead. The Rays almost caught back up, but couldn’t quite come back.
It was such an awesome game. A nail-biter, to say the least, but we had so much fun. It was nice to leave a game we’d won, especially considering the AWFUL, EMBARRASSING loss by Texas A&M earlier in the day. But I don’t want to talk about that.
Of course, we HAD to stop and admire the Chevy Cruze on our way into the stadium. I drive an Equinox and LOVE IT, and the Cruze is such a great little car. I’m super-excited because I’m about to get to test drive a Chevy Traverse for two weeks! More on that later, though…
All in all, it was a great night at the ballpark, courtesy of the North Texas Chevy Dealers.
What’s your favorite part about a baseball game? I’d love to hear your stories!
