I was on Vicodin for the weekend, so no drinking for me anyway. My back's better now, and I have to say Vicodin's good, but booze is great.

Of course just when the Twins decide to show up and play, I'm traveling to U2 shows and have given my tickets away for the next month and a half.

I will be seeing the Yanks games come August though.

I've never really gotten a good look at Alexei Ramirez before. Jesus, he's a lanky guy.

That's about all I've got to say about this series.

Went to Met game last night.

Stayed until middle of the 9th...then I said "K-Rod has this locked up"...half jokingly mind you.

Sure enough, I'm home in my bed watching the 13th inning.

The Red Sox lose 2 out of 3 to the Padres, of all teams.

Color me disappointed. No 2 and 2/3rd innings perfect game watches in here for a Marlins pitcher?

Big Grin

Thanks to U2, the Marlins have drawn the biggest crowd of the year for a home game - in SEATTLE.

Actually, the joke more goes as my Facebook status:

Not even Seattle fans want to show up to a Marlins 'home game'. Go figure.

That crowd was far worse than any given Marlins Friday crowd.

Yeah, roughly 1000 less than the Marlins average Friday night home attendance over the last 2 months. Also, the attendance likely struggled because these games weren't included for season ticket holders, and I struggle to think of season ticket holders who would go out of their way to go to the 3 extra games. At least that's what my season-ticket-holder brother and his season-ticket-holding friends have said.

Oh, I completely understand why the games didn't have a good showing for sure... it makes sense.

You almost exclusively have to buy single game seats, in which case the prices go up in a domino effect as well. Third party sellers who either get discounted rates from season seats or from corporate sponsorship of the team don't have tickets to these games, and therefore everyone is restricted to box office prices and shorter notice for the game.

Exactly. Without the King's Court deal that just started up, I'm pretty sure there would have been many, many less in attendance. But overall this year, attendance here is down. Not terribly so, but down. Which is sad, because we're a pretty decent team this year as compared to past years. Sure, the hitting is ridiculously bad. But the starting pitching has been ridiculously good. I heard on the radio today also that we're the only team left that has only used 5 starting pitchers this season.

That's me above, with the sad face.

Yesterday they opened with Where The Streets Have No Name, so your doubts are justified.
