The Game

Today, we are going to talk about my trip to Skydome.

Yes. Skydome. It will never be Rogers Center to me. It will forever be Skydome.

And I also want to say how happy I am that it is now the Blue Jays again. Not the "Jays" with that stupid angry bird looking logo they had.

My heart fluttered when I seen this for the first time. Even now, 3 weeks later, I get a huge grin on my face thinking about it. It was a dream come tryue for me. I have said for years that I could die happy if I could only see the Jays play in Skydome.

Well. I seen the Blue Jays play. And they won. Against the Phillies. WOO!

Anyway, more on that later.

When my cousin and I bought our tickets, she told the girl behind the glass it was my first time at a game. And how excited I was about it.  The girl was so happy for me, she even agreed to get her picture taken with Melvin.

 Ok. So it's not a great picture, but you get the idea.

We were early for the game so we walked all around Skydome. That was cool! It looks HUGE! But walking around it didn't really take that long. I bought a few souveniers and we waited for the gates to open.

Finally they let us in.


Walking into the Dome for the first time. There are no words to describe the feelings I was having. Remember, this was a dream come true for me. Ever since the Jays moved into Skydome, won the World Series there, I have wanted to go. I honestly thought I never would.  I could have cried when I stood at the top railing and looked down onto the field.

It was everything I dreamed of and more..

Do I sound like a geek? I don't care. This was my dream. Is my dream.

We watched batting practice and I was this close to catching one.

Oh and I should mention that we were sitting the second row up from the third base line. :D

Here are some more pictures I took.

The flags and the JUMBOTRON!!!

The dome was open because it was a beautiful day.

Can you tell by my smile how happy I am to be there?

There was over 28,000 people there. More then the population of Fort St.John. How cool is that?

My cousin has more pictures but I have to wait till her son downloads them. "D" is not smart when it comes to that sort of thing. I will post another blog when they send them to me.

Ace the mascot, rockin' the air guitar.

Melvin!! In Skydome!! OMG!!!

Ok. So that is it for today. 

Take me out to the ball game.....



  1. I haven't been to a game since they went on strike. Won't even watch them on TV because I can't bring myself to support the greedy bastards. Yes, I am still bitter about the strike in the 90's.

    You need to get rid of that stupid captcha thing. It's proven to make people not comment, and I almost gave up right there.

  2. Sorry for being so grumpy. I'm glad you had a great game, and when I used to go, I absolutely loved it. So much excitement, especially when they won.

  3. awww the skydome will always be the skydome,, awesome baseball games and awesome concerts i have seen there... glad your dream came true to be there

  4. AWESOME!!!!!! hoping to take in a cleveland of pittsburg game when we are in that area. Blue Jays aren't around when we are there as on a road show. Glad you had an amazing time. So, that one checked off the bucket list, what is next? :)

    1. Next will be seeing the Roughriders play in Mosaic staduim. Maybe in the new one if it is done by next summer. GO RIDERS!
