Yo Bartender! Jobu needs a refill...

Off to the Phillies game yesterday with Millerd33 and some others. We share partial season tickets, and always have a great time going down.

Citizens Bank Park is an awesome place to watch a game. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house really. Our seats are 4 rows off of the wall in right center and we let the opposing player just have it. Every game is a new experience and just a ton of fun.

The Phils opended 0-2 to the Nats, and it was beginning to look like another losing April. You put together their spiring training, and the start of this series and one just had to go with recent history. In the last 24 months of Baseball, the Phils have 4 losing months. All other months were .500 or better. All 4 losing months are April. Go figure.

So when the Nats started off with a 5 run first inning, well, lets just say we figured it was status quo. We stayed and watched and cheered, and just tore up Austin Kearns playing in right for the Nats. I think the implication was that he was batting for the same team. It gets pretty rough out there for visiting players, and it was evident that he didn't appreciate it when he stopped throwing warm up balls back into the stands...

The Phils had a sick 7th inning, taking a 1 run lead from a deficit of 6-1, and eventually went on to win in the 10th when Colome had to walk two to load the bases after Rollins turned a Victorino bunt in two bases getting to third rather than just second.

Colome then walked Werth giving the Phils the win. Very fun game.

I have the end of year Basketball party tonight for the girls. Pizza and beer at Toscos, and then most likely a cash game. (No, not with the girls you dopes!)

Who knows what the weekend has in store... hopefully a bunch of rest. I do have some projects to finish up but they should be easy enough to get through. I dont think I am going to play much online poker this weekend. I think i need a rest from it for a good 48 hours. so if you see me on, tell me to get off.


Have a great weekend people!
