Attending a Spokane Indians game!
[It's been a couple years since the last time I went to a ball game,](https://steemit.com/sports/@jacobtothe/take-me-out-to-the-ball-game) but tonight it's time again.

![20190719_183909.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmardhs8TnYA2JTFhY1qKdvjNvhPqp71wSd35VZdvrsyUD/20190719_183909.jpg)

The ceremonial first pitch was thrown by Babe Ruth's grand-daughter. Then, before singing *our* pole quilt theme song, they sang the Canuckistani Hymn. I remained seated for both. I'm here to watch a game, not participate in patriotic pageantry. Even if the Canadians *are* nice folks.

![20190719_184224.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmcu7sEVMjBdj49uY1LTisgWBxyuZqGmCA87BUXAFyJKnr/20190719_184224.jpg)

The dastardly Vancouver Canadians stole second base on a foul ball, so I guess the game is over until we get it back.

Bottom of the 2nd inning update: this is painful to watch. Vancouver has 7 runs on 4 hits. Spokane has... 2 errors, and that's it.

![20190719_193057.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmUFnRhbfLpZ4bTaMzUpsdqeVBAbUz2akj6YPNpPHEhAP6/20190719_193057.jpg)

Bottom of the 4th update: no change. At least Spokane figured out how to throw and catch enough to stop the bleeding. If only they could also hit a ball with a stick once in a while.

Top of the 6th update: Spokane got a single home run for one point. Mascots danced on the dugout roof. And then errors started again.

![20190719_202141.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWhGT81m1b68B3bsS3mWe6gsGXjoVcyQskMYjecWhPDZ3/20190719_202141.jpg)

Final score update: vancouver 7, Spokane 2. Spokane ended the game with 2 runs, 6 hits, and 5 errors. It was not a pretty sight. But at least there was a fireworks show after the game.

How dastardly of them. Nice night for it though, before the heat of the weekend.

You need to give them the "hey batter batter" ribbing like in the tv. That'll get them to swing wildly for no reason.

If they can't sell me overpriced food that at least tastes good, I don't see why I should try to interfere on their behalf. Teriyaki chicken and rice *sounds* good, but it was not good. At all.

Ahh. Non ballpark food at a ballpark, a city level ballpark.... that is just dangerous. You should make them pay for the slight of bad food!

Can't eat beef due to a food allergy, and today is a big event at the library so I couldn't afford to risk being sick, so mystery meat was not an option.

Used to play a similar game when I was younger but instead of balls, we used empty tin cans. The goal was to hit them into a circle whiles they are thrown at you. Beautiful photos from the park

Hey, if a song revs up a team before the match, what the hell, let them go.
Way down south we play rugby union, slightly like grid iron. 
When the NZ team, The All Blacks, comes on, before the whistle blows to start, they rev themselves up with a haka, an old war dance, it is also supposed to scare the oppoisition.
When they play one of the Pacific Island teams, they also do their war dance. 
It winds the crowd up as well.

It's a completely different vibe from a *haka.* The religious fervor of US nationalistic rituals is weird when you start thinking about it.

The old fashioned, start the school day with a prayer and the national anthem died out here in the 1950s, I believe you guys still do it.
