Late Night

Client-hosted suite at Twins game.
Twins v. Red Sox.
Johann Santana v. Curt Schilling.
(Too late to check spelling.)
13 strikeouts by Santana.
(Too late to check stats.)
Tied 1-1 at the end of 9 innings.
Tied 1-1 at the end of 10 innings.
Tied 1-1 at the end of 11 innings.
Sox score a run in the top of the 12th.
Bases loaded in the bottom of the 12th.
One out.
Full count.
We just need one run to tie, two to win.
Guy hits a GRAND FREAKING SLAM HOME RUN.
IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS I was only a few feet away from Kevin Garnett (star NBA player).

PPS When we were discussing crazy names (I still love Beamer Weems), how did we forget COCO CRISP (a player for the Red Sox). Seriously. His name is Coco Crisp.

Sounds like a great game. I haven't been to a ball game in YEARS. When the Marlins were first starting out, we lived in South Florida and we'd go to those games all the time. They weren't exactly popular at the outset and they were comping tickets left and right. It was so much fun. Good times.

Coco Crisp? Classic.

I used to dance with a girl named Holly Wrieth. And I knew a girl named LuvStarr. But I think Coco Crisp beats them both!

After Coco's horrendous performance at the Red Sox-Yankees game, Wilman and I have started calling him "Coco Crap." It fits him much better.

Preppy, free games are the best ones! We usually try to go to at least a few games a season.

DCMM, yikes, those are bad names!

GG, I don't know about how he has done this year, but I decided I don't like him based on the fact that in the picture they showed when he was up to bat, he was wearing his baseball cap to the side. I am very judgmental.

I think you will be relieved to hear that, despite my recent comment on my lack of sports knowledge, I actually DO know who Kevin Garnett is. :-)

(I can't say whether I'd know who he is if I didn't live in Minnesota, though.)

I was at this game too - not in a suite, mind you... and we were stupid enough to leave at the start of the 12th inning in an attempt to beat the traffic.

Stupid move, but a great game.
