Lucky for us we got free tickets to the All-Star game for last night. Lucky for us it was the biggest firework show they had ever had. Lucky for us our car did NOT get broken into. Lucky for us we sat by the best section in Spring Mobile Park history.
You know those people that walk around selling popcorn, cotton candy, slushies, and cinnamon roasted almonds? Well, there was one kid about 16 years old that went around selling “Cinnamon Roasted Almonds” and he didn’t just say it…he sang it. With the most beautiful sound you’ve ever heard.
A few innings later the young boy came up to our section and as soon as he sang “Cinnamon Roasted Almonds” a few boys sitting by us repeated “ALLLMONNNNNDS!”. At first this young boy was a little embarrassed and looked as if he thought they were making fun of him, but once he sold his first bag of “Cinnamon Roasted Almonds” and everyone cheered he knew they were on his side. He of course walked through the whole section and every time he said, “Cinnamon Roasted Almonds” the whole stand would repeat “ALLLMONNNDS!”. It didn’t take him long before he sold out of his “Cinnamon Roasted Almonds”.
And then….best firework show ever, thank you Spring Mobile Ball Park.
