Not Chuck Norris

stay or else

2,247 fans plus a few moths attended last night's Bend Elks game. It was seriously jam-packed and the line to get in was still long by the bottom of the second inning. Two-dollar Tuesdays rock, and maybe it was the fact that the 4th of July had passed and it was nice and hot, but the people were in attendance. It was time to play ball once again. Peanuts and Cracker Jack? You bet.

There were a few rare occurrences at this game. It wasn't that the Elks came from behind to win, or that the silly Chuck Norris answers for trivia were being given. Nope, there was a wave and the people stayed until the end of the game before leaving. A wave at Vince Genna Stadium? Seriously, it's not something I've ever seen there before. Sure, at a big stadium, but not here. And gridlock as I exited the stadium after the conclusion of the game. I don't think it was nearly as bad during the game I saw over the weekend, where one bank of lights went out and the game had to be canceled, forcing most people to be caught off-guard and having a mass exodus.

A rarity indeed. Chuck Norris would be proud.
