B*tches and Baseball

Last night our neighbors got Braves tickets last minute and invited us along. We had great seats 13 rows behind home plate and it was the most fun I've ever had at a game. Of course it was a great game and we beat the Mets but the company was even better. We have grown so close to them and the laughs never stop. They are both actor/models and extraordinarily good looking (not our normal 'crowd') but they are completely normal, down to earth people that constantly entertain me.

Now, on to the b*tches. We were sitting very close to the players "wives" section (if you can call it that!) I wish I had a video camera because words cannot just do justice to what we witnessed in that section last night. There were 2 Paris Hilton types sitting next to each other. Both wearing tiny dresses and 6 inch heels. We had to be careful not to stare too long because the glare off the diamonds could have burned out our retinas. They sat identically cross legged, with legs as long as I am, chomping gum and simultaneously texting on their Blackberries. Neighbor wife and I were playing the "guess the cost of her giant Chanel bag sitting on the floor" game when they suddenly stood up, hiked up their skirts and started doing stripper dances for Chipper Jones who was next up to bat. He was doing that revolting lizard like tongue thing back at them. Chipper is known for having many children with different wives and girlfriends (one being a Hooters waitress) but there were so many little kids down in front, with his name on the back of their little jerseys, and he's acting like a complete prick. Not to mention all the little kids around the girls. Seriously good entertainment though ;)

I'm going to a Gala this evening which sounds fancy doesn't it? We got together with all the other friends on our street and bought a table which raises money to put up historical monuments in our neighborhood where major events happened during the Battle of Atlanta. We are actually going to get to go INSIDE the East Lake Country Club where the final leg of the PGA tour is played every year. It's only 2 blocks from our house but we've never been inside the clubhouse. We did get to spend the day inside the grounds for the Tour once and I hope to do that again one day too. I'm wearing a dress which hurts my sunburned shoulders but at least I have something to wear that fits. It doesn't look horrible either!

Oh and since this is a weight loss blog, I weighed in this morning the same as last week. I'm happy about that since I traveled this week and had my yearly non-turkey hot dog at the baseball game. Hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing weekend. It's supposed to be mid 80s and less humid here. Bring it on!! :)


  1. What an evening. And the game sounds like a good one, too. :)

    Athletes' wives are a constant source of amazement to me. Why they think they are so fabulous just cuz they married well is beyond me. Oh well, it does make for good theater tho', doesn't it?

  2. Love your gala idea. Sounds like you live in a fun neighborhood. Lucky you.

    It used to be baseball and hot dogs were the American ideal. After reading about the wives, it sounds like baseball and Hooters. Like I say to my husband about some of the more knuckle-dragging players, it's a good thing they can throw/catch/hit a ball - otherwise they'd be flipping burgers. Man, they don't make 'em like Hank Aaron anymore.

  3. Sounds like you've been busy with some fun people - glad you're having a good time!

  4. Wow, I felt like I was there Tina...that was some good writing! Wrtie about the gala so we can feel like we were there too, OK Miss Prissy?? :-) Have fun!!

  5. LOL The game sounded fun. Were you shocked these ladies( using that word loosely!) stood up showed themselves? My jaw would have been on the floor!.......and you're right, the word "Gala" does make it sound extra fancy!

  6. LOL! My first thought was, "They put their Chanel bag on the floor?!" Then I realized it's probably just the bag of the day and they will have the Prada in use tomorrow. Sounds like you had fun - love the baseball field picture!
