Home Run


Home Run

This rainbow courtesy of Ella Numera Una, who snapped it recently at a Madison Mallards home game. The Mallards are part of a collegiate summer baseball league made up of players from the Upper Midwest. The Mallards play teams with names like the Green Bay Bullfrogs and the Mankato MoonDogs.

Ah, college. Back then, I wasn't ever surprised when a rainbow shone my way.

Love it! I went to college about 10 miles up the road from Mankato, so I guess the MoonDogs would be my home team. :-)

Nice shot by Ella Numero Uno. Funny, I've always had my eyes turned skyward. Growing up in the country will do that for you.

Very pretty. Makes me think of that crazy double rainbow guy on YouTube.

Oh, I love baseball games like this! What a great shot! Seems with all the rain we've had this summer, I've seen more rainbows than normal!

That's beautiful! And Madison, Green Bay... this is sounding a bit too much like Wisconsin. That's my old stomping grounds! I grew up in Appleton and went to UW Madison for college.

Great shot! Did the rainbow help them win their home game? Seems to be shining just for them!
