It was a crazy weekend here at the Jersey Shore! Graduations, proms, Mother’s Day, and we even had Tim Tebow hanging around for a few days. The Columbia Fireflies were playing against the Lakewood BlueClaws and it seemed like everyone wanted to get a glimpse of Tim Tebow, including me.
As typical Kristen style, I was late to the party, and ended up buying last minute tickets to Tuesday night’s game where I also got to catch up with a friend who I have not seen in a while. We ventured out to the outfield in the lawn seats, where we LUCKILY had perfect view of Tebow (for future reference, he plays left field, #15) mostly just standing around… the ball did not really ever come to him.
Usually when you go to the BlueClaws, you see people wearing Phillies attire since the teams are affiliated with each other. It was a completely different scene with a crowd decked out in blue and orange Mets gear supporting Tebow. It was like you wanted to root for your home team, but also root for Tebow too… a very conflicting situation in my opinion.
Although the BlueClaws did not win, Fireflies won 5-4, it was still a nice, fun night out at the ball park. Figuring I usually never go to a game during the summer, I started this season early, and I think there will be more baseball in my future… as long as it does not conflict with a race of course!
