Today I'm sharing my Weekend Snapshots pt 35, brought to you by Mama Carrizo at Friday's game. I don't usually include Friday in my snapshots, but this Friday was crucial to our existence. Okay, I'm exaggerating. Let me explain..
I'm not a huge futbol fan (Gasp! I know), neither is my mom. But when Argentina plays.. we are all over it! Friday was no different. Mama Carrizo, my sister and I packed into the car and headed to our first Argentina game with no other than Lionel Messi. If you are wondering who he is.. I'll tell you.. He's just the GREATEST futbol player in the WORLD!! Yes, the world. He's fantastical at what he does and he's an amazing humanitarian. Argentina played Bolivia and I'm still wondering where the hell Bolivia was during the game... The known Argentina players didn't really come out till later in the game, but we still won 7-0.
We were iffy about going because both Mama Carrizo and my sister worked. They found out the day before that they could take the night off and my sister rushed to buy tickets. Because we waited so long, our seats weren't the best. Not that we were complaining, though. It was our first visit to the BBVA Compass Stadium (where the Houston Dynamo play) and it was our first time watching Messi play live. He scored two points! And 5-6 people jumped down to the field and were tackled. LOL! One dude got so close to Messi it was unreal!!
On Saturday, E and I went to our first Sugar Land Skeeters game at the Constellation Field in Sugar Land. To us, baseball isn't a watch on TV sport. It's so much better to be there in person. Yelling at the batter to strike out or giving our guys props is what it's all about. Plus peanuts and the anthem and the mascot!! We were invited to join by the parents of some very good friends of ours. It's those friendships in which you don't speak or see each other often, but the love is there & so it's as if you've never skipped a beat. Yeah, one of those friendships! We had delicious food (no pictures because #iwastoohungry) surrounded by laughter and an entertaining game. We did a foot selfie (facepalm), but it was because I think one of the guys was trying to be funny and mentioned it. We all laughed it off and not ten seconds later.. we all had a foot in the circle LOL!
We didn't do much for Labor Day. Mostly because it was our catch up day, from the active week/weekend we had just had. Jay & Remidog definitely got the memo and proceeded to sleep their asses off. Ah, the life of a rescued dog..
CHEERS TO SHORT WEEKS!!!
