Go Diamondbacks!

Dane and I were lucky enough to get tickets to see the Diamondbacks beat the Cubs in game 2 of the playoffs. They swept the Cubs in 3 games and are on to the second round against the Rockies. Baseball and basketball are the sports I really understand and enjoy. We sat 9 rows from the field behind home plate. They were great seats, we sat right behind Matt Williams, who through out the first pitch and in the section right next to us was Donovan McNab, some quarterback in the NFL, I don’t know who he is. It was so much fun, on the next pitch after we took this picture; Chris Young hit a home run to left field that put us ahead for good. The game started at 7:00 pm and true to form, Dane made sure we arrived at about 5 pm to so we would not miss batting practice. The game ended up lasting until 11:30 and we did not get home until about 12:45 am. We were at the game for almost 7 hours, but honestly it was so much fun and I hope we get the chance to go back before the playoffs end. GO D-BACKS!



We sat right behind this guy, we thought for sure it was Anthony Hopkins from his Zoro days.

Go D-Backs! And for sure you had to be dying sitting behind that guy. I'm glad you got a picture without him noticing :).

7 hours might be pushing it for a ball game, but 7 hours alone with my Matt would be like a dream date. Now, if I could just get closer to where grandparents live who wouldn't mind babysitting all night I might just get to go on such a date. Sounds so fun!
