We service customers from all parts of the US, and when we had a new customer buy some towels from Walla Walla Washington, we wonder where we had heard that city before. A quick google search and it's from the classic song written by Ruth Roberts, "It's a Beautiful Day for a Ballgame!" and as I look out the window, "It IS!"
It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a ball game, for a ball game to-day
The fans are out to get a ticket or two
From Walla Walla, Wash-ing-ton to Kal-a-ma-zoo
It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a home run,
But e-ven a tri-ple’s o-kay!
We’re gon-na cheer and boo and raise a hul-la-ba-loo
At the ball game to-day
So a thank you to the fine people from Whitman College that purchased some locker room towels that got us look for the connection. Your purchase might inspire the next blog post.
Funny, someone should update the Walla Walla wikipedia page it doesn't even mention the song.
Hope you enjoy the last few days of August, and maybe catch a baseball game.
