Today, I watched my very first baseball game!
I’m not a big sports person but I do love to watch volleyball live and tennis
or table tennis on TV. So when Tim suggested baseball I wasn’t exactly jumping
up and down. But I must say, as soon as we entered the dome I was instantly glad
we came. The atmosphere, the arena and the effects on the screen were all
pretty darn cool. I loved the energy of the crowd, every fan knew they song
lyrics, they cheered and chatted with every score and being in the crowd and
witnessing someone hit a homerun was quite special. The crowd stood, cheered, sang,
and danced as one and I couldn’t help but smile and join in.
We arrived about 90 minutes before the game started,
bought our tickets and took comfort in the dome while it started to be super
miserable outside. I do like any excuse to check out merch, so after deciding
that we probably didn’t need caps, mini baseballs, towels or shirts we opted
for two no.6 (our volleyball numbers) orange and black sweat bands, to show our
support for the local team. We rolled up our sleeves and placed the bands
proudly as we watched Yomiuri Giants beat the Chunichi Dragons. We ordered
what we thought was beer but ended up being some sort of alcoholic lemonade
(just as tasty), and of course, we just _had_ to eat a hot dog. We cheered,
watched and chanted along with the crowd. It was so much fun!
