Smith Wiener Races



So, Monday night I had my first "Buck Night" experience at a Sea Wolves game. First off, the Erie Sea Wolves are the local baseball team, for you non-Erie folks. Furthermore, "Buck Night" refers to a night that hot dogs, beer, pretzels, etc. are all $1 each.
AND it's not those gross hot dogs that have been sitting on a rotisserie for hours. They're Smith hot dogs being grilled on an actual grill by a nice man who looks like my uncle.
Nice, right?

We attended with the Usual Suspects..

Anywhoos, baseball is one of those things that I forgot I really enjoy until I go. We had so much fun! My favorite activity was the Smith wiener races. Yep, they raced around the field...
Another thing that I like about the Sea Wolves game is that they're definitely family friendly. They have a "Kids Stampede" where hundred of kids sprint across the field (hilarious!), lots of crowd participation activities between innings, and the kids stand on the dugouts and lead the "Cotton-Eyed Joe" after the 7th inning stretch.


Sadly, the Sea Wolves lost to Altoona. Happily, we didn't get smacked in the face with a foul ball.

EDIT: Can anyone see these pictures? They're not showing up for me.

buck night is fun and going to the Uht is a great time. In typical Erie fashion, people show up when the beer is cheap.

Some of my pics are not showing on my blog. Sounds like a blogspot problem. Hopefully they will correct it-I would like to see your pics.

I can see all the pictures.

Looks fun. I've never been to a buck night. You guys are doing more Eriestuff in a summer than I have in my whole life!

I'm glad you're enjoying it here. Although people can be very negative about this place (our weather, our politics, etc), Erie really is a great place to live.

And I'm SO GLAD you like Smith's. You know what they say: Once you go Smith's, you never go back. I promise it's true.
