Z is for Zany

We are at the end of the alphablet for ABC Wednesday and I have decided on the word Zany.

Our city of Kansas City is one ZANY place to be right now.  The whole area (both sides of the state line) is full of ZEAL for the 83rd Allstar Baseball Game.  Kansas City has been preparing for three years for this event.




All week there has been events going on to honor the game. We've had 5K runs, Fanfest where you could go all day and tour special events held by different groups and swing your own bat, get get your favorite players autograph. The Home Run Derby was a great event with Prince Felder winning again this year.



These 1,000 lb statues have been placed in 6 areas of our city.  You can purchase mineature statues for a momento.

The fans are very ZEALOUS for the game.  Our mascot "Slugger".

There are community watch parties all over the city--for those who can't afford the tickets.

Tonight at the game on each seat is a white, red or blue T-shirt attached for the ticket-holder to wear.When photographed the stands are suppose to look like the American Flag

The ZINGER---the winner of this game tonight gets home field avantage in the World Series this fall.

I'll be watching on TV, but wish I could be there.

Great post but at this time it looks like the National League is winning.
Lots of fun things to do in prep for this though.

We watched your home town last week, during the game and Home Run Derby! Always wished I had spent more time there than the quick trips we made passing through on our way back home from St. Louis...lovely town. Happy Thursday, Ann - XOXO
