Obnoxious Things I Said Last Night at the Sox Game
DanTobinDanTobin.com took me to the Sox game last night as his date. I was expected to put out at the end of the night, but since they were standing room seats, I figured it would be ok if I didn't go all the way.
We couldn't quite find the standing room section, so we sat down in some sweet seats just behind and to the right of first base, which was a beautiful angle, and no one came to claim their seats, so we were there the whole game, which put me in a great position to say a lot of obnoxious things that wouldn't have been possible in the standing room section (where I would have had to concentrate on standing up).
(after people in the row in front of us are booted out by the rightful ticket holders)
"THOSE AREN'T YOUR SEATS? WHY, I'M AGHAST!"
"No one seems to be coming to claim these seats -- who do you think is going to last longer, us or Josh Beckett?" (it was us)
(shortly before Willy Mo strikes out for the second or third time)
"He's worked the count to 0-2. This is right where he wants to be."
(after Willy Mo whiffs for the second or third time)
"Well Dan, we're getting the authentic Red Sox 2006 experience -- Beckett giving up home runs, and Willy Mo striking out)
Dan pointed out the Wally the Green Monster could be Lenny Dinardo, though he conceded it might be Rudy Seanez. This raised the question with me whether Wally would throw the souvenior t-shirts too hard at the people in the stands, or end up missing the little kids he was aiming for by 10 feet.
All in all, a beautiful night at the ballpark. Despite seeing them lose 11-0, probably the worst played Sox game I have ever seen, it's hard to beat a night a Fenway with a good friend, especially with those seats Dan got us!
