Take Me Out

The Arizona Diamondbacks are playing last years World Series Champions the Philadelphia Phillies this week.

Dal and I were lucky enough to go to a game last night with Dal's Dad and brother in law. Here's the story through pictures.


Taking the Light Rail into Phoenix. Pretending I am not tired and irritated by the stupid Phillies fans that kept clapping louding

At the ball park
Staring down the obnoxious Phillies fan
3rd inning, We bought ourselves a footlong "Ricky" Dog. Ricky was our toothless hotdog server who named the dog.
It turns out we could only eat half a footlong. It's a good thing we didn't get those Chili Cheese Fries.
Getting excited - about... the Diamondbacks fans who were leaving in droves when we were still down 4-1 in the 8th inning.
Dal rallied with his cap AND faceI asked my millionth question about what was happening

We finally went to the official swag store and bought me a shirt to represent in
We saw the second best comb over I have ever seen

I had to document my awesome sunglasses that we just bought. That's Dal's dad and Pete behind me. Notice Pete representing Dodgers? The Dodgers were down 10-0 when we last looked last night.
Diamondbacks score a two run homer in the 9th inning
The Diamondbacks still lost - 4-3. Sorry Dal
Postscript: As I write this post, the D-backs are winning tonight's game 3-0 (7th inning). Dal is happy.

I love pro baseball. When we lived in Seattle, we were huge Mariners fans. This was back when they were good and stuff. Looks like you were having a great time, the disappointing finish notwithstanding.
