I hope to head back to NY for a playoff game at some point. We'll see. Meantime, if the Cubs advance, could see them as well.

I'll watch all 9 innings.
That'd be cool if you came. I could probably sit through a Red Sox / Yankees playoff game. Well, until they bludgeoned me to death during the bottom of the first.

Hockey games I hate sitting, I'd rather pay, watch a bit in the seats and then watch the rest from the bar IN the arena - you know that way if there's excitement at the end I have the option of going back out to watch it.


I haven't rooted for a NY baseball team since 1986 (fucking Mets - grrrrrr). I like when the fans know I'm not there for their silly little team. Stupid Yankees and Mets. I went to Sox / Yankees game and rooted for the Red Sox and no one said boo. There were lots of us actually. For baseball I'd rather sit in the bar, shit - the parking lot is cool with me. For hockey I like to sit in the seat and watch.

Hockey is amazing in person, especially when compared to watching on TV.

Our seats were right behind the dugout entrance closest to the plate. We would have been seen when they showed guys going back in after scoring runs, and there was one foul ball hit two feet in front of us in the fourth or fifth inning.

I'm writing about it in my journal tonight or tomorrow, I have a fantastic story, including us getting Charlie Manuel's attention.

Did you shower Charlie with all of the love and affection you seem to have for him?

When they brought Flash Gordon in during the eighth, he put the first guy on, and my buddy leaned over the dugout and yelled, "You know the only way he can help us now is by getting injured!" Charlie looks back and stares him down, and says, "C'mon!"

That's obnoxious, but funny too. Nice.

True, but it was fun anyway.

I also got to meet the legendary "Everybody Hits Wah-Woo" guy.

Glad you had a good time!

Good luck the rest of the week. Am relieved that my team advanced after such a fucked up start.

I loved that when the Nats took the lead on the Mets (in the middle of an at-bat for ATL), the whole stadium gave a standing ovation. It lasted for almost a minute. Kyle Lohse had to pitch through it.

Thinking about Phillies fans booing Mike Schmidt always makes me smile.

Brotherly love indeed.

Well, that was a trick that the Vikings used to confuse their enemies. Philly is just misnamed for no reason at all.



Why did they boo Mike Schmidt? How can anyone boo Mike Schmidt?
