And then there's today, with the Timothy LeRoy "The Freak" Lincecum vs. Harry LeRoy "Doc" Halladay matchup. It's going to be a good one! (This was clearly written before the game began... And we now know the result! Did The Freak actually outpitch the good Doctor?!)
Ok. Enough about other teams. I still have 3 games worth of pictures to post!
The last game of the regular season was October 3. My friend Linda worked on an ad campaign and one of the perks included games to the last homestand. Section 104, baby. Hank Aaron Seats are awesome. Instead of YOU gettin' up to go get food, SOMEONE comes to you and takes your order. WHAT? CRAZY!!
Anyhow, of course, I got to the game somewhat earlier than the normal game-goer. I MIGHT be a little bit nutty about baseball, I'm sure you can tell, but that's just the way it goes. I missed BP... and evidently, all the boys were out! I'm so sad, but at the same time, I wanted to just enjoy the game for once... and not be so concerned with taking a bajillion shots of a player, trying to catch him blowing a bubble, or connecting with a homerun. (Aside: I'll make a "Bubbalicious" post soon, chronicling all of the bubble shots I managed. And I'd also like to note that I've gotten photos of 2 home runs... the photos just happened to be extremely blurry.)
Without further ado... I present to you, the last regular season game of Bobby Cox and the 2010 Atlanta Braves.
|Our awesome bullpen coach, Eddie Perez!|
|Honoring Bobby for his 2500th win.|
So, I'd like to note that Omar is facing the Jumbotron while clapping for his manager in the picture above. Why, you ask, when Bobby is standing right behind him? Well, because the presentation was shown on the Jumbotron, and, well... come on. I only caught Omar doing it, but I promise the other players that were warming up on the field applauded at the Jumbotron instead, as well. :)
|Look how BA they both look! <3|
|Doesn't this photo look posed?? |
(Especially JC and Mike Dunn--Very School Picture Day.
And except Kimmie, who looks confused as to where he's supposed to look.)
Edit: Had to add a picture of LINDA & ME!!
