We just celebrated the arrival of 2021 and we're all waiting to see what's going to happen with live events as we make our way thorough the year. When will we be able to resume concerts, sporting events, and anything else with a crowd?

How anxious do you think the Missoula PaddleHeads are to get back to playing baseball? They did away with the Osprey name, announced their new look/name/logos, were named the best rebrand in Minor League Baseball, lost their entire 2020 season because of the pandemic, and recently lost their affiliation with MiLB. All of that and they've yet to even play an official game as the PaddleHeads.......crazy!!

We're holding out hope that we'll be able to have fans in the stands for a baseball season this summer. The PaddleHeads have season ticket options available and their also offering up Membership Plans for more flexibility. You can get tickets in packages of 5, 10, or 20 games.

We'll just have to wait and see if we can enjoy some peanuts and Cracker Jacks as we root, root, root for the home team.

Oh, and you never know who you might meet while you're hanging out at the ol' ballpark. When I was a teen, my friends and I would frequent the local minor league games and ended up becoming friendly with some of the players' wives that we would sit next to in the stands. Thanks to the invention of the mighty Facebook, I stayed in touch with one of the guys that pitched for the team and his wife. They were from Florida and had moved back after his baseball career ended. Fifteen years after meeting them I took a job in Florida, and his wife ended up getting my wife a job interview (and she eventually got the job.) So we rolled into Tampa with a job for my wife and a set of friends already in town......all because of the chance meeting during those baseball games so many years prior. True story!
