Marlins Fun!

Friday night I went to the Marlins/Cubs game. I had forgotten how much fun the games are - especially when the weather is tolerable and you are not sweating to death. Thankfully, in a few years, we won't have to face the wrath of the South Florida sun in order to enjoy our baseball games :) The Marlins played the Cubs which usually draws a big crowd. There was even an appearance by the dreaded goat to jinx the Cubs. I think there were only a few Marlin fans in the section I was sitting in. I was surrounded by Cubs fans who ended up being pretty cool. It was a fun night had by all, especially since the Marlins won! I am thinking about buying season tickets for next year (I say that every year but this time I am serious). I took a bunch of photos and have some hilarious ones of the Mermaids in awkward positions (check them out below) and a video of the hefty Manatees.

Friends and enemies.
Billy the Marlin and Lil' Billy.

The Mermaids.

The Mermaids part two - frozen in time.

This guy was awesome. He walked around all night with cotton candy on his head.

Hanley Ramirez - he didn't have the best of nights.

Dan Uggla.

Billy the Marlin with a birthday friend. See all the Cubs fans around me? They were everywhere!

I never get tired of seeing/hearing his name - Milton Bradley. His parents had to have known.

This guy was sitting in front of me. His shirt said "Relax - The Land of Fish and Chicks." Classy!

Cody Ross - crazy outfielder.

Jorge Cantu.

The Manatees. Oh my.

Loooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Yay - Marlins win!

No wonder some of the Manatees are in disguise! But it's always a fun night at the ballpark!
