Diamondbacks Game

I apologize for the long, long time between posts, but my boss has been on sabbatical and work has been hellaciously busy of late.

So, without further ado, I will post the story of our visit to watch the Diamondbacks on August 6th.

So, a while back a good chunk of the gang all got together and got
tickets to the Diamondbacks game. I had never been to a major league baseball game, so I was definitely up for going. The Diamondbacks were playing the Astros. Apparently this is Roger Clements last year, and so a lot of folks were interested in seeing him play in Phoenix for the last time. Not me frankly, but some people.

We decided to all meet at Cooperstown before the game. Since Amy lives down near there, we got there a bit early and had some early dinner before the rest of the gang showed up.

Barry had brought his Irish friend Terrance and a date named Kendra, while I brought Amy and Brent got Bahar to go at the last minute.

We sat in the upper deck and watched the game. It was eerily quiet watching a baseball game indoors at Chase Field (for those who don’t know, Chase Field – formerly Bank One Ballpark aka BOB, has a retractable roof). However since it was well over 110F outside, we were all quite happy to have the roof closed.

We got to the game at the beginning of the 2nd inning, just in time to see a Grand Slam Home Run, which I duly captured here as I was playing around with my camera (you can even see the ball coming off the bat – booyah!)

Unfortunately, the Diamondbacks lost, but it was a fun outing all the same. As always, the photos are up on flickr.
