We're Going to See the Wizard(s)

At the end of this month, we're losing three of our long-time admissions staff members at Taylor University Fort Wayne, Leo, Myka and Jennifer. Since we are a sponsor of the Fort Wayne Wizards minor league baseball team, they offered us one of their "luxury suites" for a baseball game. Luxury suite is in quotes, because it certainly was not on the scale of the suite we had at the Mariners games back in the early '90s. Basically, it was a 20x20 room with a table, a refrigerator, a TV and a counter with three stools, along with ten seats outside in the grandstand. Still, it free and we had a good time.
Our seats were directly behind home plate and the game ended up being a good one, despite the blustery weather and the noise generated by a couple thousand school kids.

In the picture below, Leo (and Paul to his left) are participating in the Y-M-C-A song. I think that's supposed to be an M. Hard to believe that YMCA could be a popular song with motions acted out by people of all ages at ballgames across the country 30 years after the Village People first sang it.
All in all, we had a good time. Lots of hot dogs and it was better than working.
