It's a dichotomy of a day.
As part of WKYC's "Weather Education Days" program, there are thousands of little kids here as part of class field trips. As I walked into the ballpark this morning, the screaming kids were enjoying the song and dance routine of people dressed up as a rain drop, a cloud and a sun (with sunglasses, of course... which is kind of like a bug spraying itself with OFF!). I believe the Jonas Brothers were playing over the speakers, but don't quote me on that.
And then, on the other end of the spectrum, we've got Nathan Followill, drummer for the rock group Kings of Leon, in the house. The Kings are performing tonight at the Tower City Amphitheater -- or whatever name it's referred to these days -- and Followill threw out a ceremonial first pitch.
Followill was here at the invitation of Grady Sizemore, who is a big fan of the Kings.
"It's safe to say that's my favorite band," Sizemore said.
Grady met them after a show over the offseason, and he's a little bummed out that the Indians' travel plans (they are bound for Tampa immediately following today's game) won't allow him to check out tonight's show.
No word on Sizemore's feelings about the Jonas Brothers.
