Our church had a "Mormon Night @ the Missions", and tickets were pretty cheap. Not to mention, they promised no drinking or smoking in our designated areas (which I thought was pretty stupid to even try to offer & enforce b/c we were all intermingled w/ non-Mormons & they were drinking). Anyways, back to my story! They had a "giveaway", if you want to call it that. So, I entered my parents, my girls, and myself. The prize was to meet the famous Jeff Kent, a MLB player, who was also LDS. I think my dad is our lucky charm, (someone always wins when he's around), as a few innings into the game, Katie's name is announced as being one of the winners to meet this ballplayer. She is clueless though. My dad was VERY excited about this (don't deny this Dad... you were excited, Mom & I could tell!). "What's going on?" she asks... "where are we going?" she asked again. "WHO am I going to meet?" she finally exclaimed. My dad takes Katie to the top of the "secretive society of rich people who can afford to sit only in the air conditioned rooms" of the Mission stadium. She comes back with a autographed ticket, and my dad grabbed a picture of them together.
Both Maddie & Katie said while we were leaving ... and I quote
"man, that was the most boring night of my life".
Guess we won't be going back to another game anytime soon!
