Let's Go Oakland! (or not)


I wore jeans, thick socks, tennis shoes, gloves, cap, t-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket and brought a warm fleece A's blanket and I still froze. Karen wore thermals, heavy jeans, turtle neck, sweatshirt, jacket, ear band, hat and gloves and was cold too, but I think the thermals were the winning idea. Maybe Friday.

A's home opener. OUCH OUCH OUCH. Throw strikes! A few defensive miscues (pitcher, if the ball goes between you and first base, you need to COVER FIRST BASE!!!!). Oh well. I've got tickets to 37 more games this season.

A's had lots of hard hit balls, but they went directly to somebody. The Blue Jays on the other hand, had lots of hard hit balls which managed to elude the defense.

Byrnesy hit a home run. Nice play at the plate by Kendall.

Ah well, I'm going to Friday, Saturday & Sunday's games.
