I was slightly miffed about my fantasy baseball team. I had opted a couple nights ago to bench Jason Kubel (since he's been less than stellar this season) and opted to play other guys instead. I should have played Kubel. He went 3 for 4 with 5 RBI's. That would have really helped my team out (though I am already winning this week).
While in our section tonight, we witnessed a big douche bag employee that was supposed to be selling soda, instead he was travelling from section to section standing in between the last break in the railing before the top, which coincidentally was RIGHT in my way. I said something, because I did want to see the game, and then he game me the dirtiest look, said nothing and walked away. I wish I would've seen his badge and found out his name. I watched him go from section to section doing the same exact thing EVERY section. He'd give whoever it was in each section the same dirty look he gave me. Hello, dude, you're there to do a job. If you don't want your job, I'll take it. I need one.
I was thrilled when the power of the J's was very strong. Joe Mauer was at second, Justin Morneau was at first, and Jason Kubel was up to bat, with JJ Hardy waiting in the wings. The power helped Jason Kubel knock in a 3 run home run.

When I peeked into right field I noticed something funny, which my friend has pointed out to me at another game, but this time I got to see it for myself. Cuddy must stand and pace in the same spot EVERY game...he's worn down and changed the color of the grass in one tiny section of the right field. It almost looks like a dog peed on the grass and it's turning a different color.
See the spot? He standing in it!
All in all it was a fabulous game and the weather couldn't have been more beautiful and perfect. The one thing I could have done without would've been all the bugs. Where was Kirby the Kestrel when we needed him tonight? He could have had a large feeding on all the bugs we saw!
Tomorrow I get to test my luck all over again. I'm not starting to have friends call me Good Luck Charm. I hope that's the case and I hope my luck never runs out!
