It Pays To Know People

Last night, Mark and I got a call from my aunt who invited us to go with her and my uncle to a Tulsa Drillers (minor league baseball) game. They happened to have tickets to the Love Bottling Co. suite, and wanted to know if we could go. Luckily, we didn't have plans, so we loaded up the Accord and headed  downtown.

The Drillers ballpark recently moved to downtown, and while it was a very controversial move in Tulsa, I think it's great. I'm all about bringing back the cool downtown vibe. So, we walked several blocks and then got into the suites entrance, where we were given some awesome purple wristbands and sent on our way to find our suite. Basically, we were living the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

I would like to say that from now on, I would totally be okay with only watching games from a suite.

Free food? Check.

Free drinks? Check.

Awesome view of the ballgame (and air conditioning and away from rain)? Check.

Basically, we had a fabulous time! It was so nice to catch up with my lovely Aunt Connie

And my cousin Bill even got a ball! His friend did, too - what are the odds? 

From our suite we could see all the downtown buildings:

I do have to admit that in total, I probably watched maybe five minutes of the game, and that's really generous. But, we had great food, great company, and a great time.

Go Drillers! (-:


PS I know my blog looks weird. Some photobucket thing showed up an wouldn't leave and now I'm trying to figure out how to get my blog to look decent without that, and clearly it's not working out for me. Stay tuned.


  1. Your hair is getting so long! It looks good. Suites are definitely the way to go when it comes to sports!

  2. That's the wonderful thing about Baseball, you can either be all into it, or you can go for the atmosphere!

  3. Oh how fun. It does pay to know people. I am very aware of the Drillers because my mom works for the Frisco RoughRiders. We play y'all all the time!

  4. The lighting in that skyline picture is so cool it makes the buildings look like a fake backdrop on a movie set, kind of like how they 'faked' the moon landing. ;-)

    Now that I mention it, are you sure you were really at the stadium and not in a studio?


  5. Way to go, Aunt Connie! I think that's awesome... if I had something as cool as a VIP box, I'd love to just share it with all my family/friends!

  6. How much fun is that?! Love livin' the high life (if only for a few hours ;-))! Looks like you guys had a great time...and I'm like you at sports games - I usually have to ask my hubby who won b/c I've been so busy talking with whomever we went with.~ Happy Wednesday to you!

  7. That is awesome!

    As far as your blog background, I think the cutestblogontheblock site closed and took all the pictures with it. My other blog lost its background too. Just go into your layout and delete the code from there and find another background and paste it.

  8. Kathryn...I didn't know that you spent that much time here! I do remember you interning for - was it - Coburn? I think I had lunch at your house right before you left to do that. I will be here at least six months...maybe more. Let me know any time you make your way! I am staying with family in the Adams Morgan/Woodley Park neighborhood, and working at a restaurant called Posto!

  9. Great hangtime with family!I also got that photobucket problem,wonder how to get rid of those!
