This will be mostly a photo blog today.
These were our tickets. Rock PIle
That is until Alice,our season ticket holder friend showed up and gave us three coupons for free tickets. This is the second time she has done this for us.
Sweet, we upgraded to Pavilion tickets. My favorite place to sit.
Soon as we got inside for batting practice, Hunter went after a ball that an Usher had tossed into the bleachers.
He got it. Then he got tossed another ball from Ubaldo Jimenez.
Hunter was really patient and It paid off.
He was able to get ball number three tossed to him by a player and he snagged his fourth ball off of of a bleacher bounce and beat the crowd to it.
Grand total of four for balls today for Hunter.
Pound for pound Hunter is Coors Field’s best boy snagger.
Me…I chased a couple balls. When I was taking pictures I happened to look up and saw a ball coming right for me. I raised my arm just in time to have it hit my glove and bounce up to a kid two rows behind me.
MY BAD !!
Mylee was with us today and she was shooting some video. Most of it was really bouncy. She said the video camera was too heavy.
You know, there is a reason the Nationals kind of suck and it was obvious during batting practice. Other than the balls the players tossed to the crowd. I don’t think the Nationals hit more than a couple HR balls the whole hour or so they were practicing.
So I decided to snap some pictures. That is after all what a Phoblographer does.
Bear with me this will be long..but cool

A really nice Usher who gave the kids each a baseball card. Thank you !! My dream job. This guy has it made Clint Hurdle getting ready A couple shots of the National Anthem I have a bunch more pictures but it’s late and I have to get up early. The Rockies lost this evening 9-4. We were up on them and I was sure were had this one, but it slipped away.
Aaron Cook gave up seven runs on eleven hits and Hurdle yanked him after 5 2/3rds innings. That doesn’t happen too often to Cookie. He is now 14-7
Brad Hawpe hit a single and scored two runs and Holliday hit a double to score a run.
This can’t happen at home.
My next game is Wednesday in what better be a tiebreaker with the Nationals. I’ll be there with my buddy Jack from Summit County.
