Ended up watching most of the Friday night game at a bar with about 30 other people that were in town for the weekend for Saturday’s game; that was a good one.
I was extremely confident that they would get Saturday’s game in; what was shocking to me is that they actually started on time. Cold night for an August game, but excellent results.
Since I was pretty much off the grid from early Friday afternoon, I had no idea until Sunday morning that I would be seeing Paul Byrd match up against Halladay rather than Jon Lester. I was obviously disappointed to learn that; but I guess it worked out, eh?
Here is a shot from my seat yesterday. I noticed one big change, though…the lower seats that were redone in the offseason look like they have way more legroom. They did this at the expense of the narrow walkway around the park…now it’s even narrower. So if I’m not mistaken, the only seats that haven’t been touched with the new owners are the crappy old blue ones…wonder if it will be at all possible to improve on them? I especially loved my aisle seat where I had to stand up 1,000 times so people could get out.
We also paid a quick visit to Wally.
