Tuesday night at the ballpark...

It's the second week at home for the Jays and my second game of the season.  The Jays hosted the Kansas City Royals tonight and though they got off to a slow and somewhat uninspired start, they got it together and did us proud.    Katherine and I checked out our first game together.  We were supposed to sit here:

Thankfully, we ran into my brother Karim and ended up sitting here:

Katherine was such fun company.  She told me how her mom (a very sweet woman) mangles the pronunciation of some player names.  She calls Rod Barajas (pronounced Bah-Rah-Haas), Rod Bear-A Jazz.  Katherine also revealed to me that she has a bit of a thing for first basemen.  Her baseball crushes have ranged from Willie Upshaw to Fred McGriff to John Olerud to Carlos Delgado to John McDonald.  I called her on her lack of loyalty while she was ogling Adam Lind and snuggling up with Ace (see the evidence below.)

Of course I gave Ace some love too.  He's no BJ Birdie but I have room in my heart for the both of them.

Today's unfortunate photo sadly belongs to Rick Ankiel. Once again, here was a player who had a great smile and looked as though he was enjoying the game.  His picture seems to completely hide his upper lip and make him look miserable.   Rick Ankiel - I saw you in your happy moments tonight!

The Jays won 4-3 in the top of the 9th inning!  Tomorrow's game is at 1:37pm.  I really hope there will be butts in the seats, the attendance tonight was the lowest I've ever seen it.  It would have been nice to share the win and great moments like Wells' home run along with his two doubles with a larger crowd.   Looking forward to next week's series against the Boston Red Sox....
