Sunday we ate breakfast and headed to the stadium. It was "Pujols Bobblehead Day", and we knew the lines would be long. We got there about 1 1/2 hours before the gates opened and were pretty close to the front of the line. People were saying the bobbleheads were pre-selling on ebay for $80 each, but we will be keeping ours! LOL Matt loves them too much.
The Cards won, 3-1... not a lot of scoring, so not an incredibly exciting game. We had good tickets (10 rows behind home-plate), so I got decent pics of Pujols.
There was a special even that day for kids with Down syndrome in the STL area. This is a pic of Pujols standing with a little boy (with Downs) on 1st base, during the National Anthem. The little boy is decked out in a mini-Pujols uniform. I thought it was so sweet! Albert signed his jersey and ball for him ☺
Thank God these seats have backs on them! Last game I went to, it was in the old Busch Stadium on the bleachers. I was 7 or 8 months pregnant, no back rest, and tortured the whole game!
Hubby was just thrilled to be there, and I think he had a very happy 31st b-day. He kept thanking me all day long for doing this.
