Wednesday, May 11 - A baseball day

Yesterday was a baseball day for rsc and me.

First we went to an afternoon Sox game vs the Oakland. We weren't sitting in our usual seats having gotten a seats in the Roof Sky boxes (never been that high in Fenway before).

The game had some unneeded drama since we were ahead 4-1 in the top of the ninth and Keith our last-year very reliable closer came in and soon the score was 4-5. In the bottom of the ninth Jason Varitek, Hunk Captain, hit a Pesky Pole* homer with Ortiz on base and we won (the second walk-off homer in a row (the last such time was in 1935)). I guess all's well that ends well, but...

Then we went to see Take Me Out which was lots of fun. I knew about the existence of a shower scene (actually two), but I didn't know there were working showers in this scene. It was a well written/acted play with a good story and lots of funny lines. Oddly we only saw one person in the audience that we knew.

*The Pesky Pole is the pole at the end of 1st base foul line that can be seen above - it intersects with the r in Budweiser.

I was just about to arrange a ticket to Take Me Out! Glad to hear it gets a thumbs up.

And lots of naked men.

So called because Johnny Pesky, onetime Red Sox shortstop and local icon, hit very few home runs in his career, but most if not all of them were right down the right field line (302 feet).

Um... John. Tuesday was the 10th. Wednesday was the 11th.

Thanks, entry now corrected.

> Oddly we only saw one person in the audience that we knew.

That could be, in part, because four people you know are supposed to be in the audience in another 3.3 weeks or so. Glad to know it's a good show. :)

Nice picture. Game drama can be exhausting and that followed by naked men in a baseball play? Holey moley. What a day.

And speaking of game drama, I kept glancing over at the scoreboard for updates on that little pitcher's duel your guys played in New York yesterday. I'm not real happy with your guys at the moment.

And it's worth noting that, when deciding when to see the play, we deliberately chose the day of the game. We might have been sorry if the game had gone many extra innings.

I'm so jealous! I miss Fenway Park (though I do like our equally bizarre
SBC Park here by the bay).
