Friday was a very busy day for me. I filmed and edited My iPhone 14 Pro Max Unboxing and also posted My First Impressions of the COD MWII Beta. Somehow I got both of those finished in time to go to a baseball game with @flowerbaby after she got off of work.

Our local team is the Charleston Dirty Birds. Since we both enjoy watching the games and the field is really close to where I live, we have been to several games this year. Friday night's matchup versus the Gastonia Honey Hunters was the start of the last series at home before the end of the regular season.

We didn't want to miss our last chance of the year to go to a game. Plus we had some free tickets that @flowerbaby got from work. On top of that, they were giving out free trucker hats to the first 1,000 fans to arrive.

We arrived early due to the giveaway. The game didn't start until 6:35 and we got there a little after 5:00, even though the gates didn't open until 5:30. @flowerbaby insisted since we both really wanted the free hat. Usually, giveaway nights are extremely busy. It wasn't too bad this night, we were one of the first 10 in line and were able to each claim our free black hats with the Dirty Birds logo on the front.

Since we got there so early, we had to wait around for an hour. I decided to have some fun with my new iPhone 14 Pro's cameras while we didn't have anything else to do. I love being able to switch between lenses. The telephoto lens gives a nice 3x zoom so that I can take high-resolution photos from much further away. The ultra-wide lens is great for the opposite when I am too close to a target and need to zoom out to .5x.

The ultra-wide lens is especially entertaining since sometimes it results in some wonky-looking figures. For instance, look at the photos of us both and you will see how long it makes the bill of our hats look.

Another great feature of the cameras is the ability to capture macro photography. I couldn't help but take close-up photos of several different things. First, it was both of our eyes, which were looking especially good out there in the sunlight. Next, you'll be able to see the detail of @flowerbaby's skin where her spiderweb tattoo is on her knee. We had blue raspberry ice and it turned our tongues blue, you know I had to capture that too. Lastly, I took a cool photo of one of the bolts in the chair. This is my first time ever having the ability to do macro shots like this, it's so much fun and I cannot wait to explore using it even more.

The game itself was enjoyable. I liked the other team's jerseys, they had a certain drip to them that reminded me of Hive, thanks to the honey in their name. We didn't even stay for half of the game, we both tire out from baseball easily. I think we left just before the start of the 5th inning, but we had enough by then.

It wasn't really a close game, as the Dirty Birds ended up losing 10-5. This didn't surprise me since the Honey Hunters' record was 87-43 and the Dirty Birds were just 52-78. It hasn't been the best year for the team, but it's still been fun to go watch them play many times this summer.

Full game stats can be found here.

Their last game of the season was Sunday, September 18. So we are back to having nothing but college sports to go watch. Luckily, we have plans to do that quite a bit. We are going to the WVU vs Marshall Men's Soccer game on Saturday, September 24th. Then we will probably go to some of the Marshall basketball games too. The school is less than an hour away from us, so going to see some sports action is inevitable for this fall and winter.

So, what do you think of our new hats? Was it worth it for us to get there more than an hour early just to insure that we both got one? Leave a comment and let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!

You guys looks so gorgeous in these pictures! It's incredible, the power of iPhone 14 Pro Max cameras!

Thank you dude!
I think that the image resolution is lowered slightly when uploading and especially so by the fact that I combine multiple photos into one. The original files look even better! Still, there is no denying that the macro shots are cool and I love having the ability to photograph people on the field and it not be all grainy

I think the hats are cute, they look good on you both. So I guess it's worth the time... When it comes to giveaways, I'd be willing to do anything 😅. It's just fun to be amongst lucky winners.

Wow! I didn't even know iPhone 14 was out already. It's so cool that you were able to purchase it so fast. By looking at the photos, I can see how amazing the camera is 👌.

I love the details on the close-up images. Those eyes are so pretty, I must say 😍.

Thank you. We are both the type to love anything that is FREE. These black trucker hats definitely look better than the last ones that the team gave out to fans for free... The hunter camo ones were absolutely hideous!

iPhone 14 was just released a few days ago. September is always the month the new ones come out.

I'm going to be obsessed with taking macro shots now, I know it. The lenses can see things that my eyes cannot.

Wow, I definitely like this cap better! I love caps. And I really loved camo, I think this cap would be one of my favorites!

The iphone 14 photo is the bomb! Ahhhhhhh yes, I definitely want to change my phone. 🤣😅

You're welcome. If it's free be sure to find me there 😅😁.

Oh yes, the black trucker hats definitely looks better to me. I'm not a fan of camo though.

Wow, only a few days ago? Sweet!

I know right 😄... I would be way more obsessed too. Keep having fun with the lenses! 😊

I like the hats...

I like the pictures more..

I am not so much of an iPhone person but with the excitement in your tone..

I am getting tempted to cross over to the apple team.

These are really cool pictures

Thanks! If you come over to Apple, you must go for a Pro model to really get the best of what iPhones have to offer.

What's a pro model?

Pro has better everything. More powerful cameras, display, battery, and other exclusive features. They started doing Pros with the iPhone 12. So you could find a used iPhone 12 Pro, 13 Pro available new still but cheaper, or the latest 14 Pro if you're willing to spend a lot.

Oh thank you.

How much is a cheap used iPhone 12 pro

I can’t say for certain, but I’d estimate around $600 for a new one. It just depends when buying used. Might get lucky and find a good one for cheaper.

Your hats are absolutely cool, man. I'm not sure, but I think it's worth it. You also had some free time to try out the camera there. You look like you had fun, so it must have been worth it. I haven't been active for a few days because my aunts were visiting and I missed your iPhone 14 post. Luckily I read it today and I'm so happy for you man. Use your new phone in good days.

Getting there super early has its perks.
Sounds nice to get to spend some time with your family while they are in.
Thanks as always 👏

The hats are just to lure the audience. However, many people come there because of their loyalty to their idol team, not to the hats being shared.
I think you really deserve both hats because of their appreciation for your loyalty and willingness to come early.

Do you know which ones are not bonuses? What is not a bonus are the photos you share here. Those are really high-quality photos. What's lacking in 14 Pro? !LOL
I really like the photos of your eyes and that photo of the hat. very detailed results, and that's "not a bonus" you get from the 14 Pro. It's a fair price and totally worth it for the high-quality results.

Have fun, Bro!

They do giveaways at least once a week and it is always the nights with the largest attendance numbers. It's a great idea and I'm always happy to have extra incentive to go to a game.

Thanks for the photo compliment! The eye photos were very cool to see turn out so well. I don't think the 14 Pro's camera lacks in any way really besides ultra zoom like some Android phones have.

a free hat never hurts my friend and just for arriving early you were also able to take pictures with your new phone even if your team lost. Sure it was worth the effort

Of course my friend, it was worth going to the game and getting the free hat. It's great that you have the opportunity to continue enjoying college sports, which I understand are very popular.

You just can't beat a classics black hat.. and the logo isn't that bad. I say win win! Good thing you got there early. I had to comment, because you had me laughing at that blue tongue. Glad you got out to one last game. Looks like the weather for it was awesome! (Those condiment kids made me chuckle too). Take care! 😁

My black hats always end up being my most worn ones, they match everything that I wear. They actually just updated their logo last season and I like it a lot better than the old name of WV Power.

I knew the blue tongue photos would be cool. I couldn't convince my gf to let me take one of her tongue.

The condiment kids are a mid-inning race that they hold at every single game. They love getting people out on the field to do silly stuff. Mustard won this time by the way!

I have a black Jeep hat that I love and wear a lot, so I hear ya. Hahaha.. I am laughing at those condiment kids once again. Those sort of silly things are kind of cool to have to keep the interest. I always liked that in between innings kind of stuff. 😁

That makes me want to get some car hats. I have a few car shirts, but no hat yet.
The games are always fun, although they literally never switch up what they do on the field in terms of games.

My wife got me a few Jeep hats and Jeep shirts last Christmas. I wear the heck out of those things. I own a Jeep Wrangler, so I can justify it. I have seen people wearing Ford and Chevy stuff when they don't own one.. so I guess I'm cool either way. lol. I guess I should never sell my Jeep then... hahahaha.

They need to switch things up! Like the pitch.. The Changeup 😆

Better not get rid of that Jeep ever, unless you plan to replace it with another Jeep of course 😉

Absolutely! On both accounts.. The wife and the Jeep. lol

Here where my first two. The yellow CJ7 was an 82 and the red YJ was a 92..

Sold the CJ for the YJ and then sold that for a pickup (ugggg.. bad decision like you said)

Then I bought a white TJ I call 'Old X'. I love this Jeep. Put some money into it, but it has low miles and and this inline 6 will probably never die. I don't plan on parting with it any time soon.

Sorry for chatting your ear off :-(

My gf’s step dad just got one from 2006 with the 4.0 and sure seems to love it.
That white looks good and reminds me of my uncle’s old Wrangler that he had when I was little.

My mom just got rid of her purple Wrangler a year or so ago. It was gorgeous.

OH COOL! That is such a neat color. Dang and she let it go.. oh well. Mine is a 2006 as well. Last year they made the TJ series. Major changes after that, including the inline 6. That was left out in place of a V6.. Not as strong in my opinion. Dang.. That purple color is sweet. Was that a 2019? Yeah, makes my white look sad. 😆

People love that 4.0
She got hers new in May of 2017. Not only was it a lovely and reliable ride, but it also held value extremely well. She ended up trading it for a new Blazer, which is also pretty badass. She wanted more tech and luxury on the inside than the barebones feeling of a Jeep.

Yup.. Most Wranglers ride pretty rough. Now that Blazer is sweet!! Those black rims look awesome with that cherry red. very very nice 😍 Can't blame her, that's a comfortable and stylish looking ride.

Thanks, bro!

The condiment costumes are a tradition for every single home game. They always have kids get dressed up as a condiment and get out on the field to race from first to third base.
