…boy that would’ve been a great title/concept for a Marx Brothers movie. It’s a shame they’re all dead.
Today was my company’s semi-annual trip to the ballpark. Saw a winning game. Apparently, even though this game didn’t matter much, as per the Cardinals being eliminated from the playoff-run the previous night, it at least salvaged the season, giving them an overall WINNING season. (That’s part of what we do at the company. We handle salvage. You’re welcome, Cardinals! Sorry…bad industry-joke…)
Fun time. Enjoyed being out there, even though I didn’t really pay attention to the game and the fireworks scared the hell out of me. Our bosses are really good to us and they sprung for great seats (and free food/beer!) up in the Coca-Cola deck—dead center, with a perfect view right down the middle of the diamond. Were I a fan, it would’ve probably meant more…but even not liking baseball, I’ve got to say that was a pretty cool view, as you’ll see momentarily.
Below are some pictures from my cell phone that kind of capture the spirit of the day. Enjoy!
