Detroit Tigers Opening Day

last Friday, I got to partake in my 1st ever “Opening Day” experience.  a friend won 4 free tickets to the game, so I joined him and 2 other friends for a the trip to downtown Detroit.  the weather forecast wasn’t looking great – it rained all morning, but there was a chance it would clear up by the afternoon, and a 3pm start gave us hope that the weather would improve.

we each worked a half-day that morning, and then met up at one of the guy’s house in Dearborn to carpool downtown.  we met up with some other folks that my friends knew for a beer in the parking lot of Woodward Ave before the game.  at that point, it was maybe mid-50’s, and still drizzling rain.  but by the time we walked down to the stadium, the rain had stopped – and the sun even peaked out during the game.  we sat in the lower part of the upper deck, with a pretty nice view of the field.

after the game, we walked around a bit, and stopped in at the patio at the Town Pump Tavern, to have a few drinks, socialize, and watch the people who had already had way too much to drink.

we were living the High Life.
