Last night, Arkansas played Memphis here in North Little Rock at Dickey-Stephens Park. My brother is home from college on Spring Break, so we went to cheer on the Hogs to victory. Here we are just after getting there:
Oh, how I love Razorback baseball. It was interesting though. It took us about an hour to get there and find parking, where it would normally be only about 15-20 minutes. If we would have taken my brother's truck, we might have been able to park a little quicker because there were some spaces on the curb, but I was afraid that my little old car would get stuck if I tried to drive it up a curb with 2 people in it. haha! (And the curb spots were free! We had to pay $10 to park in a shady parking lot a couple of blocks away. It was only $5 to park right next to the stadium in their parking lot. I guess we should have gone a little earlier.) There were 10,065 people there, and it was sold out. This is the same stadium where our Travelers play, and I don't think they have ever had a sold out game? I bet there were 3 times as many people there last night as at a typical Travs game, and they doubled the ticket price. All of the actual seats were sold out when I got our tickets, so we ended up with berm tickets. I think I may have expressed my feelings towards the outdoors on here before. I don't like to be outside really, and I especially don't want to sit in the grass. :) As luck would have it, even though we had berm tickets, the whole Freaking berm was stuffed full of people. We couldn't even find a seat unless we wanted to sit in a stranger's lap. We ended up standing behind one of the seated sections because we could see better anyway. A family left about halfway through the game, so we were able to snag their seats. Score!
