Take Me Out To the Ball Game... ⚾️🥜🌭⚾️
A few weeks ago, my family and I attended one of the opening games of the Colorado Rockies' 2018 season. We entered the ball park and took a photo right away. At the top of the 6th inning, my dad pointed out the sign painted on top of the Rockies’ dugout.
"Notice anything?" He said.
I took a couple of glances at the 25th anniversary sign and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
"No, what is it?"
"25 years ago? Colorado Rockies?" His eyes opened wide, head tilted as if expecting me pick up on his clues.
Then it came to me, it was almost exactly 25 years ago, I was assaulted. I was supposed to be at one of the very first opening games of the "New" Colorado Rockies. The date I will never forget, April 12, 1993.
My unawareness of the significance was a good sign. Anniversary jitters stopped many, many years ago and many years have passed since I gave it any thought at all.
