Re: Who's going tonight?
Great game last night. Pettite was very good but wow he threw a lot of pitches. Once he was out, I knew we had a shot. Arroyo looked great. Shame we needed to pinch hit for him. He could have gone another couple of innings without much problem.
My wife and 3 kids (ages 5, 3 and 3) took me to the game last night for my birthday (on Thursday). It was the first time any of the kids had ever been to a game. They had a great time and that ending was awesome. They all really enjoyed it, even if they didn't understand it.
We had $5 seats to start, but with the sparse crowd, we ended up moving down behind the third base line, about 20 rows up. Perfect timing too because we got down to those seats with our ice cream in hand just as the bottom of the eighth started, so we saw the entire rally.
Kids made it all the way through the game and talked about the game the entire ride home. What a memory. Probably my best birthday present ever.
