Rule Breaker

Yep, I am breaking the rules. I am jumping almost two weeks ahead… well not ahead, but to today. I haven’t done many of Fandango’s Who Won the Week challenges but I had to post today.

My winner for the week is the state of Iowa, specifically the city of Dyersville. After years of talk and planning and hoping… the first major league baseball game ever played in Iowa happened. But it wasn’t just a regular ballgame. This was a scene from a movie played out.

‘The New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox met in the corn fields of Dyersville to play the Field of Dreams game. Old time uniforms, a audience of Iowan fans and a visit from the film’s star all made for a mgical night. No, I was not one of the lucky ones to get a ticket, but we did catch most of the end of the game on TV. It was so cool to see the homers disappear between the rows of corn.

Some of the best news was later on when I heard not only the game would be played again next year, but it was the highest watched ball game in the last 16 years on TV. So cool.

My winner for the week… the Field of Dreams.
