Well, people.. we've made it! This is our 52nd date, one for each week of the year. Therefore, its been a whole year since I've started this blog! Wow.. time sure does fly when your having fun!

For this date we focused it around Cleveland sports teams. First, on Wednesday we went to the Cleveland Browns Family Fun Night free event at the stadium. The night consisted of watching the team practice, fight for autographs and a fireworks show. There were a lot of people in attendance, but we still got to sit really close to the field. There were quite a few interceptions while the offense was playing against the defense. We aren't sure if that means we have a really bad offensive line or a really good defensive line. I guess we'll have to wait and see! The players stuck around for about 20 minutes after practice to sign autographs for fans. Because there were so many kids there we didn't bother trying to get any. The fireworks show was not good. They shot them behind the stadium and we could only see half of most of the fireworks and some we couldn't see at all. We were even sitting in one of the "good view" sections. I do not recommend going to see a fireworks display at Browns stadium. Other than that it was a fun night and the team looked pretty good! We are ready for a good football season!
On Friday we went to the Indians game with my sisters and their boyfriends. This was a big, big, big day for Adam because he got to represent Progressive and throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch! To add to the excitement they allowed all of us to go down on the field with him to watch him throw it. We were told this wouldn't be the case so we were pleasantly surprised! Adam did a pretty good job.. I was proud of him! If you haven't seen the video on youtube yet, take a look!
Afterwards we all ate, got our free bobble heads and found our seats. It rained a little and we lost but it was still a fun game. We were in the lower level home run area in right field. It was a really good view! It was Amanda's birthday so my mom put a message to her on the scoreboard which we were excited to see. After the game there was a fireworks show that was 100 times better than the Browns fireworks show. I think the music theme was rock n' roll from 1967 which was great because I knew most of the songs from my History of Rock n' Roll class at OU. It rained a little during the game and we lost but we all had a fantastic time.
Adam and I are big Cleveland sports fans so this was a great date for us! We will definitely be going to more sporting events in the future, but it was great seeing two of our favorite sports teams in one week!

P.S. We also got hibachi at Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse for Amanda's birthday dinner on Saturday. It was delicious!
P.P.S. Come back next week for a Hunger Games themed date!!!
