i went to my first durham bull’s game on saturday night. and woah, is that crazy stuff. not only do they have fake sumo wrestling and ridiculous gimmicks about every 15 minutes or so, they have a fantastic game called “fish or no fish” where the contestants literally have to guess if a word on the screen is the name of a fish or not. then they shout out, “fish!” or … “no fish!” it is ridiculous and amazing. i was never so impressed at a baseball game… and the pittsburgh pirates have some pretty ridiculous gimmicks. come on, the perogie race?
i was also particularly impressed by the giant towering bull sign.
“is he looking at me? i think he’s looking at me.”
the bulls played norfolk and lost, but it was a good (and quick) game. it was umbearable muggy and humid to begin with, but cooled down quickly. the stadium is awesome and reminds me of a (very) mini PNC park. i’m totally looking forward to going home to pittsburgh in september to get some good PNC park shots with my wide angle. pirates games are always fun no matter how boring they are. does that make sense?

i’d love love love to do a photoshoot sometime in the old durham bull’s stadium of bull durham kevin costner fame. it’s still up and, well, sitting… somewhere in downtown durham. if anyone is up for that, please let me know. a bridal shoot even! we’ve gotta have some baseball couples around here, right?
