Day 159 1/2
Ah ok, this post will be dedicated to the Rockies and the triumph that was the first sweep of the season.
This guy pitched and I got the ticket of the day he pitched autographed and chatted with him to say great game. Seven innings, 108 pitches and dominance. I hope to see more of it amigo. I have been praising you for quite a long time and I will be framing that autographed ticket.

This word that came up on the scoreboard at Busch seemed to sum it all up.
Carlos Gonzalez by Tom Walsh
This guy couldn’t get a hit to save his life but I had no problem with that.
Pujols strikeout by Tom Walsh
This character looked a little creepy. I’ll think I’ll take our big smile dinosaur anyday.
Finally, adios Busch Stadium you were the friendliest confines to my boys the whole season eventhough you are a complete rip off because you can be. Damn you supply and demand and the fact you can charge $22 for the cheapest seats in the house. Shame. Don’t you know we are in a recession and beers should not be the most expensive I have seen anywhere – $7.75! Ridiculous, although it is cool you let people bring their own food and drink (minus beer) into the stadium.

Speaking of stadiums, I really need to get caught up on my stadium reviews. I am sooo sorry : ( The road can be tough to get wifi and post as much as I would like. I owe you the reader Arlington, Minute Maid and Busch. I will find time. Promise.
Yes, Emily I know I haven’t posted Helton’s 2,000th hit but I keep coming up short on the autograph. I am trying and I am confident I will get it soon and I’ll post the pict. Thanks for your patience.
