Riverdogs Baseball...A Grand Slam Night

When Deb suggested ending the week at The Joe for a baseball game, we were so in.

Pro baseball can be traced in Charleston back to 1886 when the Charleston Seagulls played. The Riverdogs got their start  in 1980 and are now a minor league affiliate of the New York Yankees.
Local boy, the actor Bill Murray, is part owner of the team and is on the staff roster with the very important job of Director of Fun.
The team name originates from an urban legend that sailors in Charleston would notice large rats, on the banks of the nearby Cooper and Ashley rivers, and would call them "river dogs", and was chosen in a name-the-team contest held at local Piggly Wiggly outlets in 1994. So very small town.

Deb was pretty excited when she spotted Shep from Bravo's "Southern Charm". The show reveals a world of exclusivity, money and scandal dating back through generations of families in Charleston. The docuseries follows several Charleston singles as they pursue their personal and professional lives while trying to preserve their family names because just one social faux pas can taint a family's name for generations.
We also ran into Landon. This is what is written about the two of them. "But not everyone is eager to settle down. Shep, the resident bachelor and ladies' man, finds a new partner-in-leisure in Landon, who's just as dedicated to riding the waves of life. However, Landon has a revelation that could change their decade-long friendship forever." Guess what I'm watching this Monday at 9 PM?
Star sightings, great stadium food, fun friends AND our team won! Woo hoo.

The night ended with an amazing fireworks display. Day #20 in Charleston was absolutely fabulous!

WOW -- Day 20! I'm assuming the couch was a photo op. That would be a comfy way to watch a game AND fireworks.
