Take Me Out to the Ballgame

This summer has been filled with baseball games for me. The San Diego Padres began a winning streak in July that coincided with my return to the city, so I couldn't let them down. I've had the opportunity to spend many nights in beautiful, but strangely-named Petco Park in the warm San Diego summer twilight.

I've stood to belt out "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" every seventh inning stretch. I've cheered, booed and eaten overpriced hot dogs. Memories of celebrating this great American pasttime with friends, family and visitors will undoubtedly bring me comfort as I strike out into the real world on my own.
