Take me out to the Ballgame

On the eve of the home opener in Seoul, I figured a good Throwback Thursday would be to good times at the ol’ ball-game in Busan.  I’ve been an avid Blue Jays fan ever since I can remember.  I have fragmented memories of sitting in my Aunt’s and Uncle’s living room watching a big game snuggled up with my parents.  I also remember being down by the SkyDome (yes, it was still the SkyDome in those days and will forever be called the SkyDome in my vernacular) where I think my Mom and Dad bought a few sweatshirts celebrating the victories of 1992/1993 back to back World Series Champs.  I wear one of those sweatshirts just about every Sunday night when I Skype my parents.

I wanna have more picnics in my life. Busan Citizen’s Park is the best for it. All I need is a mat/blanket to sit on, sun protection, and snacks. As you can see, I bring a lot of snacks. Maybe I can’t even call shrimp, fried chicken, and that much bread a “snack.” Oh well.

In Korea, be sure to put your alcohol in a different container. If you get caught, you likely won’t be forced to pay a fine but you will be asked to put it away. Have fun out there, folks.
