Not interested in going to prom? Try a baseball game instead

When I look back on my high school prom, I remember lots of awkwardness and terrible pain in my feet from standing too long in stiletto heels. Apparently, I'm not alone.

These five seniors from Horizon High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., decided to skip all of that this year and invest in some tickets to watch the D-backs take on the Rockies.

"We went to prom last year, and it [stunk]. We paid $90 just to stand around."

Pretty dresses, slick tuxes, baseball and no awkward slow dancing? Sounds like a perfect prom to me.
