Wordful Wednesday: Texas Ranger vs Oakland A's Game
This past weekend my daughter-in-law, granddaughter and I all had our first baseball game experience. Kroger invited my family to watch the Rangers vs Oakland A's at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. I'll admit that I have never really been a fan of baseball but watching it live is a whole different experience! There were 46,711 fans in attendance at Saturday's game...WOW!
I have to say this was tough for me to cheer for our home team when I'm a Cali girl, born and raised. Plus, back in the days when Jose Conseco played for the Oakland A's, I used to joke with my daughter that I was dating him. Haha!
My granddaughter had so much fun clapping, cheering, booing and even doing the wave. I somehow think she enjoyed her cotton candy the most. The Rangers ended up winning 7-2 and we scored free stuff; Grand Slam Breakfast and Taco Bueno Q's for scoring and Monster drinks from the Monster employees. Oh, and my grand daughter received a free Texas Ranger shirt upon entering.
Free parking, tickets, food and gift bag courtesy of Kroger...Wow. now that's an outing any frugalicious mommy would love! Thanks, we all had a wonderful time and a special thanks to Kristal. Kristal was nice enough to stand in the scorching heat to greet us and give us our tickets and gift bag.
