I was excited.... Finally.... I got to see JR leave the yard in person....
Here is to 551, and one home run I"ll never forget.
The first time I say Jr. go yard live, I kicked the bleacher seat in front of me (it was empty) and ended up fracturing my foot - I was so filled with glee (and alcohol) that I didn't realize it until we started walking back to the car (I wasn't driving).
I don't know why I just 'said' that.
