But enough about baseball...look at THIS FACE!!
Adding beer to the equation makes for either super-fun caricature experiences or disgusting ones. I had both yesterday: this guy was the super-fun, friendly one. He and his buddy were delightfully buzzed before the game and having a great time:
The disgusting experience (no picture though) was with a not-so-delightful intoxicated guy and his friend--he wanted to dictate to me exactly how the friend was to be drawn as a wrestler, and how skimpy his wrestling attire should be. I declined to draw them and they went on to my long-suffering colleague next door, who did--enduring both their drunken banter AND the spilling of almost an entire beer on the caricature stand. Afterwards, we found out that my above-mentioned nice subject and his less-than-fun ones both gave us sizable tips---but he had to work alot harder for his!
Of course, there's more to baseball fandom than alcohol, here's proof of that:
Below, I drew a scenario that was a new one to me.

There were plenty of uber-fan outfits floating around yesterday, but the only photo I caught was this one:
Nice to see a full stadium!
Enjoy a couple of video snippets from my afternoon:
