5/29/09 @ Miller Park

Straight to the point.

BALL #1 – Nick Masset toss-up after initial warmups.

BALL #2 – David Weathers toss-up during BP. 
ONLY after I yelled, “Roll Tide!” (He’s a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan)

+       CRIMSON TIDE         =        BASEBALL

BALL #3 – Aaron Harang tossup during BP.

My favorite Redlegs player.

BALL #4 – Jonny Gomes BP homer on bounce.
BALL #5 – Jonny Gomes BP homer on fly (given to Ethan – see below).

BALL #6 – glove trick out of Brewers pen near end of Reds portion of BP (given to nearby kid).

So, do you remember this little dude…??
5_29_09 Reds vs Brewers @ Miller Park 009.jpg…that’s Ethan.  He stopped by to say “hi” and was given BALL #5 (Gomes BP homer).

Here’s a few random pics of a sasquatch sighting at Miller Park…

…and below…
5_29_09 Reds vs Brewers @ Miller Park 005.jpg…some sort of menacing mating stance…

…finally…
5_29_09 Reds vs Brewers @ Miller Park 007.jpg…they’ve gone and multiplied AND they drink beer.  Whowouldathunkit??  No harm-they’re just having a good time.

Someone get that man a brassiere.

People say ballhawking is weird?  Wow.

Finals…

Crap dude 40+ thousand fans? I’m getting used to the 14K down here in Houston and the park being wide open. The way the Rockies are playing may make me even more of a target in Miller next week!
