The Good Thing About Playing the Paw Sox and Other Bits of Randomness

Last year, we saw Josh Beckett pitch in rehab. Tonight, we got to see Kevin Millwood and Hideki Okajima, both former All-Star pitchers. That was pretty cool.

The evening started out a lot of fun. Sandee's bag was searched when she came into the stadium.
(That happened to me once, too.)

It was a pretty night for a ball game.

Sunset turned the clouds into cotton candy over the stadium
When the scoreboard didn't reflect a strike for quite a while, Sandee wondered aloud if the scorer had to call his mommy and ask if it was okay to give the batter a strike.  A little while later, one of the ushers commented on her umbrella, asking her if she thought it was going to rain. "No, I brought it so it wouldn't rain," she explained.

We once again noticed that when we call our encouragement to the team, they seem to do better.

JERSEY RAFFLE: Cam-meow. Tonight's intern/model tried to tell us that they alternate nights: camo, pink, camo, pink. Ha-ha, we said. We have a blog to prove her wrong!

  • Matt Antonelli ignored us all night. We know he heard us.
  • Corey "Ignore-y" Brown ignored us all night. We know he heard us. In fact, Corey Brown is JACKET MAN! It was too warm for his jacket tonight, but we know that face now.
BEST INNING OF THE GAME: The fifth. If you don't believe us, check the box score.

GUEST OF THE NIGHT: Amanda, who is a follower of this blog came over to say hi to us! How cool is that?

GOOD NEWS: Carlos Maldonado is off the DL because Jesus Flores was called up to Washington. Maybe we'll get to see Carlos play again soon!


What does Syracuse reliver Lee Hyde do after he warms up, but before his first pitch?
 LAMENT OF THE NIGHT: The bullpen.

Don't worry, JS. Either Sandee or I will be there every game. Thanks for reading and commenting. Stop by Section 207 (behind the visitors dugout) and say Hi the next time you're at the stadium! -- Molly the Anonymous
