that is awesome. for the hundreds of games i've been to, half in prime bleachers territory, i've never gotten a ball except one from the bullpen catcher after a game once. never a game ball. last season at a yankees game a cano HR landed in the seat behind me, it may have hit me in the head had the guy next to me not deflected it. this girl behind us got it but of course you've gotta throw that shit back. fenway ushers are a bitch though, damned if you do, damned if you don't. you don't throw it back, the crowd will lynch you, you do, you get kicked out. i warned her, so she gave it to a guy who wanted to throw it out, he got kicked out.

Remind me someday to tell you why I have a bleacher seat from Yankee Stadium. No police escort, but it includes a really drunk Asian and a homeless guy with a fresh three-pack of underwear!

i could have had a pair of fenway bleacher seats if i'd wanted to pay $450 for them but I am a poor student. and they wouldn't guarantee that you'd get your season seats anyway. i would at least want ones with the right seat numbers on them.

Technically it was BP, but it was most definitely the league MVP who hit it. I stole it from underneath a 6'5" Pittsburgh fan.

He loves baseball. His interference instincts kicked in and he tracked this down. Just like Dalton perks up when bras or boobs or ass or whiskey or Jews are discussed.

I have not. I'd like to once. I'd have to keep my mouth shut, though, lest I plunge to my death.

Which is why Chiam Potok is my favorite author. All of those things rolled into one novel.


Speaking of which, have you started reading the Brothers K yet?
