Yesterday, for my birthday, I sang the National Anthem at the Phillies game. What an experience! What STRESS!
ESM and I left the house with what we thought was plenty of time to get there. We only live 40 minutes from the stadium. Who knew the Flyers were playing at the SAME TIME?? Janet did! :) Who knew the traffic would be HORRENDOUS? Anyone who has been to a game in say the last year or so! I can't tell you the last time I've been to a Phillies game.
Anyway, after sitting in traffic for way too long, ESM and I ran all over the stadium trying to find someone who could get us out on the field. Finally, at 1:31, I was lead onto the field, over the Astro's dugout. COOL!
By 1:37 we were done singing and heading back underground. WOW! Looking around at about 40,000 standing with their hats off for US to sing! AMAZING! Would I do it again? HELLS YES! But I will be leaving my house at 5 am to get there!
