Clippers opening night

Went to the Columbus Clippers first home game of the season last night.

The stands

I haven’t been before, so maybe I’m not a good judge, but the crowd seemed a bit light for the home opener. Maybe it was the cold weather. It was cold by the end of the game.

The t-shirt gun

The good old t-shirt gun. (That’s what killed Maude Flanders, you know.)

Teddy at the game

The Mt. Rushmore dead presidents were on hand. Apparently, they’re the mascots for the Washington Nationals, for which the Clippers are a farm team.

Ketchup wins!

The hot dog with ketchup won the hot dog race. So they finally jazzed it up!

Oh yeah, there was also a baseball game mixed in there somewhere. The Clippers lost to the Buffalo Bisons 2-0.

    Sounds like a blast. I love going to Clippers games. I don’t care much for baseball, but, it’s just festive and fun. When it warms up a bit (because of my duaghter), we’re there! Nice pics.

    So what about all those studies showing horrible things happen to meat eaters.
    Leave them out for longer periods of time until the night-time temperatures
    are above 50 degrees. However, it is difficult for people to perceive that
    there is a need for these tents.
