On the sidelines in Durham and Raleigh
Jun 8, 2012
Thursday was 80s night here at the DBAP. It felt like I jumped into a time machine and went back 30 years to the land of neon colors and wild hair. Fans helped us remember the good ole days by dressing up in crazy costumes, from Magnum PI to Madonna.
I decided to go as a Rubik's Cube because of how perplexing my personality is. Unfortunately someone messed with my cube right before the game, but luckily I was able to solve the puzzle by the end of the night!
On Saturday, one of the biggest races in the Triangle will be taking place and guess who will be there?Me, of course!!! The Susan G Komen Triangle Race for the Cure is a spectacular event supporting a great cause.
Cancer is a tough disease that doesn’t just affect the person with it, but also their friends and family.
I tried to get the organizers to let me chase a few runners, encouraging them to run faster and therefore raise more money, but they didn’t bite. Instead they have me cheering on the racers on the sidelines, which is just as good. Regardless, I feel honored to always be invited to help cheer on the hundreds of runners and walkers and put smiles on everyone’s faces. Make sure to come out, support the participants and help raise money to find a cure for breast cancer.
Next Tuesday, the Bulls take on the Toledo Mud Hens (a.k.a. the Dirty Chickens) in a special 12:05 p.m. game. Although our home games are always broadcasted on Time Warner Cable channel 1151 HD and 151, Bulls fans from across the country will be able to tune in as the game will be aired live on MLB network!
I’m already an international star from last month’s broadcast in Japan, so it’s time to broaden my domestic base. Be sure to check the Bulls out on MLB Network, if you can’t skip out of work and check out the greatest show in minor league baseball.
The team heads back to town on June 22 to take on the Buffalo Bisons. Just because the team is away doesn’t mean I get to take off! Sure I might visit the pool with my floaties or check out the farmers market for some fresh grass, but you can always check in on me to see what I am up to on my Facebook page or on Twitter @DurhamBulls.
