Green Seats!

Last night Nick and I experienced a first for us:  The Cardinal Club and Green Seats.  For those that don't know these tickets include a pre-game buffet that had yummy things like stuffed pork roast and buttery potatoes and fondue.  Once you get to your seats there is another menu of more ballpark like food including a bacon wrapped hot dog (which let me tell you was AWESOME!).  Our seats were first row literally right behind home plate.  It was a great vantage point to watch the game, but knowing that we were constantly on TV was a bit nerve-wracking.  Who wants to be on national television stuffing their face with a bacon wrapped hot dog??  Here are some pictures from the night:

look I even wore just a little bit of red!

The nice group of old men sitting behind us took this picture for us.  It was also there first time sitting in the green seats and I think at least one of them was on the phone with their wives and/or children the whole game asking if they were on TV.  They were quite entertaining.

We also had a request to wave for the camera and one of our friends caught it on their DVR.  There were also a couple of foul balls that came right at my face and my reflex was to duck and cover even with the fence.  Those around me were quite entertained by my reaction and I'm pretty sure it was also on TV at least once.
Yep I'm that girl!

It was a beautiful night for baseball and we had a great time!
