Po plays ball, sort of

It’s been a while since Po made an appearance here. She wasn’t kidnapped or anything. She’s just been quietly hanging off of my camera bag, waiting for her next grand adventure.

As it turns out, our beloved - and somewhat tattered - Teletubby is a bit of a sports fan, so she tagged along this past weekend when we went to the oldest baseball stadium in the world to take in a game.

The London Majors have been around in various forms since 1925. They’ve won the Intercounty Baseball League championship for the past two two years running, and we got to sit in the stands just behind their dugout.

It’s baseball in its most beautifully pure and local form, as if Field of Dreams came to life in our own backyard. As much as we love the Toronto Blue Jays, there’s something magical about a team that’s woven into the fabric of the community, where the players wander around the parking lot just behind the stands and chat amiably with fans as they chill out on well worn picnic tables and chow down on footlong hot dogs.

Po didn’t get a hot dog because in the real world stuffed Teletubbies don’t eat. But she was glad she went all the same. So were we.
