Baseball replaced running last night

Game 1 of the NLDS pitted our beloved hometown D'backs vs. the Cubs. Pictured above is Tom (a Red Sox fan), Me (a Reds fan), Mike (a Cards fan) and Steve (a Cubs fan) outside the D'backs stadium under the big bats. This is life in Phoenix, where everyone is from somewhere else and if your team isn't playing you root for the hometeam D'backs. So tonight 3 out of 4 of us honored the slogan - We back, the D'backs. Notice Mike's tri tee. He did a sprint at tempe town lake. He's a lot faster than I am. Mike and Tom both play on the same softball team as I do.
48K fans and a lot of them were in cubbie blue. They would be the unhappy one's before the end of the evening.


One is a $5 Diamond Dog and one is a $1.50 kids dog. Can you tell which is which? I think the better deal is the kids dog. They tasted the same and you could get 3 of the kids dogs for less than one of the diamond dogs. I ate them both.


Diamondbacks won 3-1. And the crowd went wild.
Best Scoreboard Video: In the middle of the game they had the Kiss Cam. Everyone teams does it. You show a couple and they kiss on camera. The D'backs showed about 10 couples and everyone kissed. The last person they showed was a cubs fan, dressed like Bartman, alone. They played "I'm so lonely" and you watched him all by himself with the ball he caught at wrigley. It was hilarious. I'll see if it's on youtube. too funny.






Here it is from the regular season. In last nights episode there weren't the girls to come to his rescue.

Fun! I'm jealous that you got to go to the game!

I loooooove hotdogs! I dont eat regular ones much anymore since the day I figured out how much fat is in those doggies, but for all the weight loss buffs out there - BallPark makes a GREAT FAT FREE, all beef hotdog. They are YUMMMY! That is all I buy at home now. Granted, the are $5 a pack....but worth it!

Sorry for the shameless plug about hotdogs. :P

You were there?! I was watching from my couch! And funny about what you said about rooting for the D-Backs - I was rooting for them and my dad said I should be ashamed of myself... only rooting for them because I was moving there. What happened to my Mariners loyalty??

How fun you get to actually GO to the games and eat yummy hot dogs too!

Chicago is going NUTS with all of the playoff fever. But they are not show why they should be there. I am rooting for Colorado, which is kicking butt in their series. :D

2 teams from the NL West in the NLCS??? WOW! Gotta admit I was pulling for the Cubbies, but hey I'm okay with the DBacks. How bout those Rockies. They may just win out. GO INDIANS!

October baseball is so cool, last year the Tigers did us proud! Enjoy what looks like another few games for the D-backs.
