Now, I guess the real excitement of the game was that a few weeks back, the great Metstradamus himself invited a few of the bloggers out for a game as his brother was coming in from out of town. Well, fun! I gave the Coop seats away, Zoe and I RSVP'd "yes" and away we went. Believe it or not, a few good things came out of the game.
1.) I got to chill with homey Zoe after a long weekend that I spent alternatingly puking and napping when I wasn't, and a weekend she arguably had it better than me playing poker and hanging out with friends.
2.) I got to sit in the realm of greatness with Greg from Faith and Fear and of course Metstradamus but also the Blogger Formerly Known as Yes Joe, It's Toasted (now "Toasty Joe - the Interim Manager Edition).
3.) I also got to meet the Great "Rickey Henderson!"
4.) Our team even won boxes of Bubba Burgers! I tried to get a good shot of the crew on the Diamond Vision - couldn't see anyone from our crew. Oh and in case anyone was wondering -- there are no Bubba Burgers in the boxes they give away. It's a coupon for "Free" Bubbas, plus a T-shirt.
5.) Being that I really was too afraid to eat anything, I did opt try a Kozy Shack pudding -- I know, at $3 for a little shot glass of it, it seems a lot, but a nice breakaway for the vegetarian who alternates eating french fries and peanuts at games. No beer for Coop tonight either. Probably not till this weekend.
Other than that, I mean, what else can I say -- it was a boring game and had it not been blogger night, I probably would have opted to stay home anyway due to me being sick all weekend. Although I did leave early -- even if there was a comeback of 6/30/2000 proportions, I probably would not have been able to enjoy it.
But I do have pics of the team! At one point, I saw some woman walking around with a shirt that said "Red Sox Nation."
Then I started thinking, we need a name for our "land." I mean, there's Patriots Country, Red Sox Nation, the Black Hole in Oakland...what clever name could we have?
I asked Greg his thoughts and he said he's been trying to get "Metsopotamia" in the mainstream and he's seen maybe one other blogger use it.
Well, Greg, here's a second.
Welcome to Metsopotamia. And tell me if I spelled it right.
