    Great day at the ballpark

    We had tickets for this entire Cubs series, but I had to workl all weekend. My wife took her mom along with our kids. She called me today after the game. My kids are in the Redshead club. A Reds rep approached them and said there were not enough kids in Reds shirts in the crowd to do the Reds run-on thing where a kid is announced at each position, and runs out to that position, and could my kids stand in. They are 7 and 11, One went to first with Votto, and one to the mound woith Harang. Each got an autographed ball. Later on, they were selected to go sit on the recliners on the lower level in that promo for some furniture store. What a game I had to miss, huh?
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Glad your family had a nice time. They picked a great game to go to... there is nothing better than beating the Cubs.

    Sure there is.... beating the Cubs with 20,000+ Cubs fans in the stands in walk off fashion when you are a terrible baseball team.

    That's awesome. It's a memory they'll cherish. I wish you couldve shared it.

    That's sad they didn't have enough kids but it's great your kids got to do it.

    Today's game was the 1st televised game I've seen of the Reds. I was struck by the sounds of the game....it seemed like they were in Wrigley based on the applause for all things Cub.
    Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand

    Guess you can by either DVD or VHS memories. They brought home a form and for 25 bucks apiece you can by a DVD or a tape of all the things they do. Check it out. I might buy this as I wasn't there. Click on this to enlarge this to see just how you can add to your library.

    That's a pretty cool thing and a great experience, 91. Its fun to watch the kids with the Reds for this run-on thing.

    I always thought it was a telling comment to watch the player with the child. Some of the Reds are really good with it and engage the kid, talk to them, give them a high-5, blah blah blah. Others just act bored, sign the ball, and say "get outta here".

    Pay attention to the open sky
