At the Angels Home Opener

I may have mentioned before that I was going to the home opener at Angels Stadium last night and we did just that.  The Budweiser Clydesdales made their usual appearance outside the main gate.

These are really big horses.  We last saw them perform at the Equifest prior to the Rose Parade and in the Rose Parade itself, but weren't able to get anywhere near this close to them.

There were also the regular opening day festivities.  First the unfurling of the flag during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. All of the pictures except my stitching were taken by my daughter.
Then the flyover by the C-17 Globemaster III, a huge cargo plane.


As usual, I stitched during the game itself; otherwise I tend to find baseball boring.  This time I brought Duncan Dog, my Advent Animal for this month.  I didn't get a lot done, because we left early.  It was a not-fun boring game which the Angels lost big time. 


  1. Not a baseball fan at all, but the opening ceremonies themselves look like fun. Great stitching start.

  2. Looks like the entertainment is more fun than the sport! At least you got some stitching done.
    You should pop over to my blog, you will read something to your advantage!

  3. Wow! Looks like a fun time, Cathy.
