Today at my son’s baseball game, I was really wishing for an air conditioning system of some sort.
Of course, baseball is the sport of summer, and everybody seems to be playing during the hottest part of the year.
If you know anything at all about baseball, then you know that it is also the longest sport that there is. Baseball games can sometimes last forever. The last game that I went to ended up going into extra innings and I was there for three hours. Of course, as luck would have it, it was also one of the hottest days of the year! The temperature that day ended up being 93 degrees and I felt really bad about the fact that the boys were out there in the hot sun in their long baseball pants. Anyway, today at my son’s game, I was really feeling like I was going to melt. There was not even any shade anywhere around the field, so there was no way to cool off at all. A couple of times, I thought about going and sitting in my car for a while and turning their air conditioning on full blast. I didn’t do it though, because I did not want to miss anything. But the high temperature really made me start wishing that I had some sort of personal cooling system. Someone needs to invent a personal cooling system for baseball moms who have to go and sit at the hot field for hours at a time all summer long. Maybe I will do it.
