I Can't Believe They're 6 and 2

Mariner's Home Opener, 2009

The M's home opener was great--really good game, great crowd, sunny (but freezing cold) weather. The only downside? I'm exhausted and will have a looooooooooooong day at work tomorrow to make up for taking the afternoon off. Totally worth it. But I need to go to sleep now.

What's in the photos? All L to Right (though I'm sure you could have figured that out yourself). I've shuffled them up, they aren't in chronological order.

Top Row: Ichiro is introduced, Sunny Safeco Sign on the third level, Griffey is introduced
Middle Row: Grounds crew dance, the only knitting I can be trusted with these days (3 x 3 rib, the second Northern Lights cuff), Opening day painted on the field
Bottom Row: Victory!!!!, Felix is introduced, Griffey's first at bat (this was a strike--I didn't get a good photo of the hit).

My favorite photo was from my iPhone, which was otherwise totally useless at the game:


I don't know what the problem was (other than a large crowd), but for most of the game I didn't have phone service or internet connectivity. I'm sure that my Facebook friends were disappointed not to receive updates on my status every five minutes (i.e. "Griffey got a hit!" and "What a corndog!") while they were at work. Plus, the constant search for service meant that my battery drained in only a few hours. Booooooooo, AT&T wireless.

The next game for us on Friday, it's Ichiro bobblehead night. Free toy = Maximum Value!
