The Weekend of the Yellow Jacket Sports

After our weekly Saturday ritual of eating at Slope's BBQ, we traveled down to Georgia Tech's campus for a beautiful afternoon of baseball. Cumulus clouds streaked across the spring sky like pieces of cotton candy. The temperature was in the 70's, which felt nice in the shade-- perfect baseball-watching weather.

I haven't been to a baseball game in years. It was delightfully refreshing to kick off my shoes, lean back on the benches of Russ Chandler Stadium, and enjoy the crack of the bat, the smell of grilled $5 hotdogs, and the warm sunshine. Tech was up by 6 runs until the top of the eighth and then lost miserably in the last two innings (though they changed pitchers as often as the opposing team changed batters, it seemed.) Even so, it was good game to watch-- Tech had us on the edges of our seats for the last two innings. All in all, it was a superb way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
