Busch vs Wrigley - Rain Delays

In the past month, I experienced rain delays at Busch Stadium and Wrigley Field.  Yes, I am biased in my opinion, but Busch Stadium wins by a long shot.

It rained about the same amount of time at both stadiums, yet Wrigley's rain delay was twice as long.

A couple things resulted from this.  Wrigley Field almost cleared out during the delay.  Pretty much everyone stuck around at Busch.  

The fans at Wrigley also got rowdier.  Obnoxiously so.  I told Mike on our walk home if I was at the game with anyone who acted like that, I would move.  It's just rude.

It was nice, after the delay, to be able to move down close to the field (since most people left).  We sat right behind the Cardinals dugout and I really enjoyed watching Haris's pitches come in and hit the glove.  It's crazy.  That was nice.  (Aside from my new neighbors and the wet seats...)

I think Mike & I sat in 4 different seats during the course of the game, pausing in a few other spots too.

oh heyyyy missouri flag!

P.S. Wrigley's trying to get you excited about the new Hot Doug's in the stadium.  Please note:  you can only purchase them if you have bleacher seats.  (At least that's what an usher told us.)

P.P.S.  Who watched the game last night.  So good!  And I'm not upset with Yadi & Mike being tossed.  They were just standing up for the pitchers.
And I loved my dad's response to the 9th inning homer (winning the game), which I emailed him about immediately upon waking up and checking the final score.  "hard to believe - I actually turned on the tv the inning before.  I saw Carpenter draw his walk and when Peralta came up I said, "knock it out of there, Jhonny!".  Of course, we do that all the time, which is why its amazing when it actually happens."  Yep, my dad is the best.

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

Week Notes

The teenagers from Parkland are giving me so much hope.  So much hope.  I think this is the first time I've read a political news article and smiled since Nov. 8, 2016.

Is the Tide commercial making anyone else cry during the Olympics?

As someone who's not generally a TV fan, how is it possible for me to get so involved, so quickly, in every sport?  Which by the way I know nothing about.

Anyone ever try Door Dash.  I'm not big on delivery services in general, but after a bad experience with Grub Hub we gave Door Dash a try and we are fans.

When a friend recommends a happy hour place, you go.  So Thursday morning a friend told me about Mangia Italiano.  Thursday happy hour Mike & I were there.


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…
