Baseball in a small town...

We are in Kansas this weekend, where everything is smaller, slower and sweeter. Except little league baseball.

I went to my 12yo nephews game while my husband went to another small town to attend my 9yo and 10yo nephews' game.

When we met back up we were both saying things like this....

Did you see the dugouts they have? How about the big bleachers? Did you see the electronic scoreboard? They had an announcer's booth at the field aaaaand they play music between the innings.

Then my sister piped up, "Yeah, but you all get beer!"

And that's true, we do get beer from the concession stands in St. Louis, because you can't go anywhere without a little bit of Budweiser. But, I think the music between innings is better than Bud.

I know Jean, it's crazy. But, when your the home of Budweiser, well, it's as common as water.

Little league games are dry here. We also have counties that are completely dry. 2 years ago the town I am closest to voted to allow sales here.

Phelan,
I always forget when I go to Kansas that no liquor is sold in the grocery stores and you can't buy liquor on Sundays.

actually, you can buy beer in groceries, and several small towns in my area can now sell liquor on sundays. It is changing, but slowly.
