Swarm!

I'm good at taking loads of photos when I go out and do something, but crap at adding them to this here blog. So let's try to catch up with the most recent and work our way backwards, shall we?

Last weekend Heather won some free tickets to the final regular season lacrosse match for the Minnesota Swarm. They play at Excel Center in St. Paul, to which I joked, 'I have to go all the way to St. Paul?!?'

How was watching professional lacrosse? Super-fun! It was family-friendly but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. To see kids all excited about their team, holding the free posters and begging parents for souvenirs had me all nostalgic for acting the same way at Dodger Stadium and of course when at home and seeing the Visalia Oaks play, only a few feet from where I'd be sitting. Which reminds me, there might be at least three remaining Minnesotans out here that don't know I met Kirby Puckett as a kid. It's what I say before I say, 'Hi.'

So, let's get on with it: Swarm footage!










By the time you probably read this you'll have missed the finals and what-not, so here, mark your calendars, etc. to get a ticket for next season: http://www.mnswarm.com
