Well, let's just say the Nashville Sounds won easily last night
, 14-5. I thought we might be in for a long night with the Zephrys got a three-run home run in the top of the first, but the Sounds answered in the bottom of the first, took the lead in the bottom of the second and never looked back. If you were looking for a defensive battle, this was not it. But, hey, it was still fun. (Also, if you're a Washington Nationals fan, you have to be worried as your farm system ain't looking too hot right about now...)
It was a nice evening out with a couple of hot dogs and some popcorn to eat during the game. I had to wait about forever and a day for the popcorn as there were two families in front of me each buying enough popcorn for the thundering hoards (I guess they can't all share the giant vat of popcorn). But at least I knew my popcorn was fresh.
Then, on the way home, I heard the end of the Nashville Cats game--only the second arena league football game to ever end in a tie. My fandom came out last night as I heard we were playing a team from Dallas, so I wanted to beat them all the more. Alas, it was a tie. Honestly, they kept fumbling and turning the ball over to each other in the overtime period. It was almost like no one wanted to win this game...
