Some of you may know that yesterday I got to go to my first professional game of any kind-ever! The company I used to volunteer for gave away free A's tickets to everyone who wanted them. So, the worst part was, The Mariners were ahead 4-1 at the end of the 7th, and we decided we'd beat the traffic out of the Coliseum...
Well, the A's came back to tie it in the eighth, and the game went to 10 innings, and the A's hit a homer with 2 guys on base...and I missed it!!

It just goes to show you, the game ain't over til it's over!
OH, and another thing! I happened to catch a free t-shirt that was thrown into the stands (it was a diet mt dew), AND the kid sitting right next to me caught the second home run ball hit by the Mariners (Saunders). And then our section all got free pizza vouchers cause we rocked and the A's girl came around and put us on the big screen!

Man, that's all awesome! I've never been in the winning section, caught a ball (or tshirt), or been on the big screen! I've been to hundreds of Tigers games, lucky dawg!!

Sounds like you had a blast!
