Theme Thursday - Friday Night Eyes

What would Thursday (or Friday morning for that matter) be without a Theme Thursday contribution? Now when Stacy called the challenge this week "Eyes," I'm guessing she probably meant human eyes but by now you know that Susie doesn't usually take the theme literally. So I offer you this: Hit Bull, Win Steak. Intrigued?

Last Friday evening, we participated in that summer rite of passage that is attending a baseball game. And if you live in the Triangle area of North Carolina or have ever seen the movie Bull Durham, then you understand what a full sensory experience it is to go see the Durham Bulls play. Besides the actual game action on the field, there is the loud organ music playing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and the vendors walking around with steaming sweet-smelling funnel cakes. And there is so much to do!

For one thing, you get to share snow cones.

And perhaps contemplate your next career?

(Here is where the eyes come in) And feel safely watched over by this guy -

When the home team makes a home run, he really does do this (just like in the movie) -

The Bulls won, by the way. Those eyes were glowing red a lot that night.

Thanks for sharing the glowing eyes LOL! I loved that movie, too. Great shots of the summer outing.

Very cool--love that bull!

Nothing like summer at the ball park is there?

I knew there was something I liked about you... you are a local girl!! I also live in the triangle and was supposed to attend a Bulls game tonight, but opted for the beach instead.

oh how funny! and cool! I bet your boys loved that. Must confess, I've never seen the movie--didn't he paint Susan Sarandon's toenails, though? I think I remember reading that.
