7/24/13 Safeco Field

The WIN-dians were in town and my soul purpose of attending this game was to talk with Chris Perez. Prior to the game, I found out he had deleted his Twitter account. I’m not exactly sure why. My only guess was because he had that whole drug thing and fans were flipping his a bunch of BS over it.

Anyway, I never got to see Chris. Last year we had some Twitter dialogue that was pretty awesome and I wanted to re-connect on that and play a quick game of catch and thank him for his contributions to the Cleveland team. Didn’t happen.

I stayed the whole game down in the ‘Pen and it was hot! I know I got sunburnt, I could feel the sun roasting my face as I watched the game.

Here’s a couple memorable pictures I took during the game…

I really had a bad feeling about being in the stadium. Not only were the Mariners on an eight-game winning streak, Safeco Joe was pitching. I know a lot of people like to hold themselves accountable for sports teams having their winning streaks broken up, and I suppose I was one of those people. All I heard in the ‘Pen throughout the game were people claiming they should’ve stayed home, this and that. I had to laugh because this was my exact feelings! I hadn’t been to a Mariners game for a long time. My last game attended was April 26th. As soon as the game started, the Mariners second basement booted an easy grounder and I just hung my head. It was all downhill from there. The Indians blew out the Mariners 10-1. Scott Kazmir was a tough pitcher to beat and he’s had a lot of success at Safeco.

I’ve still been keeping up on my charity promise to Bud Norris (who was traded to the Orioles) and the Candlelighters along with the Seattle Humane Society. Also, for those of you who keep up on this blog, I won’t be touring the Midwest this season. I had an awful run in with the IRS so it killed my vacation fund. The season ends for me on September 29th at Safeco Field. Next year, though, will be amazing. I plan on going to the season opener in Australia, and then I’m headed to Montreal on the 28th of March to watch the Mets and the BlueJays play in Olympic Stadium. After that, I’ll be spending a week or so in California visiting Dodger stadium and Chase Field in Arizona. Then it’s off to Miller Park and then the All-Star game in Minnesota! Plans, of course, always seem to change but I’ll be keeping things updated on this blog in case you’re at the ballpark and you want to say hi.
