A night with the Beavers

And here you thought that title meant a talk about our local den-building rodents of our Northwest waterways. No! I'm talking college baseball here! Last night this Oregon native was able to go see one of the better college baseball teams in the country play in Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners. The match up between the University of Washington Huskies vs. Oregon State Beavers was held there in front of a crowd nearly 5,000 strong (in a place that holds 45,000 the place looked empty!). Of course I was seated with my son in the sea of orange and black behind the visitor dugout - this OSU graduate was happy to sport his orange and black too! The evening grew cold and breezy, but we had a wonderful time together watching OSU defeat UofW 6-4. And my son even got to hang out with one of his best friends from his current Little League team since we found them walking in also.

Go Beavs! :)
