And I was there to see it! I have to say this was the most exciting 2-1 extra inning game I have ever been to. Both teams had their chances through out the game to take the lead. Kosuke Fukudome had a great throw home to get out Jeff Soup’son. I had said before the game that I had better see a couple of bean balls and they did not dissapoint. Each team had two players plunked including D. Lee and The Prince. It was good old baseball, no fights, just a couple of bruised rear ends. They still have two games left in the series so I am still hoping to see Braun catch one in the ass.
This is a pic of Big Z just after he got his ass chewed by the pitching coach Larry Rothchild. Zambrano lost his cool a couple of times but somehow managed to give up just one run. He also made a catch in foul territory shortly after this meeting. Koyee Hill was calling it all the way, there was a runner on third and Big Z insisted on making the catch himself instead of covering home. Nothing came of it, but he really needs to take his head out of his ass once in a while. Speaking of asses, Milton Bradley is one! He did his best Jose Canseco imitation and took one off the head. What looked like a routine pop fly in the 9th turned into a lump on Bradley’s head. Somehow it was scored a hit? It all ended with DeFelice walking in the game winning run. It was a pretty intense at bat and it looked like Jake Fox took strike three, but the ump must of had dinner plans and called it a ball. Good for us!
The highlight of the game though, was this lady doing the YMCA dance while being eaten by her pants.
She was also caught mocking Alfonso Soriano’s lack of hustle down the first base line. It was way funnier than her dancing routine but I was unable to get a picture of it. Luckily it is forever burned into my mind and it will be the only thing I see when I see him for the rest of my life. It was that damn funny!
Here are some more random pics………
The day ended with a train ride with this nice young man…….
He fell flat on the floor twice before falling backwards into the seat. As far as I know he might be still on the train.
