Kansas City Royals 1 – Minnesota Twins 3
Target Field – Minneapolis, MN
July 9, 2018
So much to tell, but why bog it down with words when a video would do it better justice?
As you can see, it was action-packed. I got to bring a special someone to a game with me (and show her my weird hobby). I witnessed her get her first (and second) baseball! We played Family Feud on the Jumbotron. And that was just what happened once we entered the gates.
Pride night was pretty fantastic. My only wish is that it would have coincided with the actual Pride celebration in Minneapolis. But that is a minor complaint. The free hat and the rest of the magical experience was well worth it.
Podcast time! For those who want to also listen to random ramblings…

And here is the song that is referenced in the title. Another Minnesota musician/group; this type a rather unique and genre-bending collective named ZibraZibra. I love these guys. Ridiculously catchy lyrics with anthem-quality hooks, over the top guitar solos, and unapologetically cheesy synths… Amazing. Oh, and this song is especially fitting for a Pride celebration.
