July 4th weekend: OKC RedHawks vs. Iowa Cubs

Disclaimer: I should have posted this blog forever ago, but I just haven't had the time. I wanted to post for some of the pictures as well as because its sports. Also MiLB just ended the regular season. So kinda of my farewell to MiLB.

As a last minute trip, we decide to go up to Iowa and visit family. We left on Thursday afternoon and got to Iowa early Friday morning. After lunch we decided to surprise G's mom at work. She was suppose to be coming down the next to see us in OKC.

We decided to go to the Iowa Cubs that night. Mostly because the Iowa Cubs were playing the OKC RedHawks. I always love watching these 2 teams play in OKC. It's my childhood team vs the team who signed our paychecks. I always went back and forth. I cheer for the Iowa Cubs since we are in Arizona now. I will always cheer for the players that I do know on the OKC team. We got great seats from the RH announcer. He tweeted me if the RH lost it was because I was there. (haha, Alex)

They had a silent auction going on that night. Sarah's boyfriend got a few things because he loves collecting signed things. It was fun to see all the items too. There were a few things that would be nice to have, but seriously where would we put them. Our apartment is already full.

The game was the best ever. I honestly don't remember much of the game, except for a few parts. All of us were busy catching up with each other.

We were sitting with all Iowa Cubs fan, and I was cheering for the RedHawks. My husband on the only hand cheered for Iowa the first half and OKC the second. As the game continued I got more courageous with my cheering for OKC.

About half way through the game, there was a bench clearing fight. I was pumped because I love fights. (Good thing, I work in hockey because that happens all the time.) The best thing about this fight was the manger for OKC, Tony D, got throw out. I stood and cheered for me. I love him.
