I neglected to mention that my Tiger, Magglio Ordóñez, hit a two run homer to right field last night, notching his second extra base hit of the season. We were sitting directly behind where the home run hit, so it was difficult for us to tell whether the ball had hit of the top of the wall, or off of Swisher's glove. I looked at the highlight this morning to ascertain what happened, and as you probably know, it hit off the top of the wall.
Well, that game winner was a pretty nice cap to my evening.
Now, if only I could go back to the ballpark tonight.
Baseball. A tonic for all that ails. The perfect accompaniment to almost every activity. A day at the ballpark. It's not asking for much. I vow to get locked in for the night one day.
