Go Diamondbacks, Go!

Thursday night Scott and I attended a Diamondbacks VS. Rockies baseball game at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.

Generally, Scott and I are not much of sports fans, but we thought it would be fun to attend a game and take in the sites. About a month ago we purchased our tickets at Costco, and paid $40 for two tickets, and also $12 in Dbucks that we could use to buy food at the stadium.

Since parking can be kind of hectic near the stadium we opted to park in my parking garage for school a few blocks away and walk to the game. The weather was really nice that evening and it actually felt like fall.

Once we made it to the stadium we picked up our tickets, and made our way in. We soon found out that we were sitting pretty close to the field and had great seats.

After hanging out for a bit and watching the game start, I decided that I was hungry and needed to spend our Dbucks, so we took a walk to the food court area and picked out some chicken strips, french fries, and one very large iced tea.

The game was overall a lot of fun, and we enjoyed talking about the goofy pictures of the players, how fast the balls were going, and how well the Dbacks were doing. We're pretty happy that we went, and now are planning on going to a Suns game when basketball season starts.

Do you ever go to sporting events? What's your favorite part about them?


  1. I'm not big on sports, but I'm going to my first baseball game of the year on Tuesday! San Diego Padres vs. Chicago Cubs. Yay!

  2. I'm not much of a sports fan, but there's something incredibly nostalgic about baseball games for me. My brother used to play when we were younger so I always went to his games! As a family, we would go to an Indians game once a summer as well. It was really nice!

  3. Down here in the south football is huge, and although I don't care much for the actual game, the atmosphere of excitement & expectancy it provides are so fun!
    p.s. i'm a new follower of your blog & i love it! can't wait to read more..

  4. baseball games are my favorite date nights! ((AND GO ROCKIES!)) :)

    you just can't beat concession stand food, cotton candy, and good ol' baseball.

    y'all are too cute.

  5. I've never been to a professional baseball game...they look like fun!

    I've been to many, many professional basketball games though. The atmostphere is amazing. It gets so loud and the game moves so's really exciting. :)

  6. I LOVE going to baseball games. I hate watching them on tv, but being there is a whole different story. Rhett and I drove to Atlanta for a Braves game this summer, which was super fun.
