a few buddies and I decided to walk up to the Sox game on Saturday night and got some tickets in the upper tank - third base side, second row from oblivion.
anyway, the rain started coming down pretty hard in the first inning, prompting the umpires to put the game in delay.
Boos rang out across the stadium, which was ironic because the people were booing as they themselves were running for cover!!
.... then an observation....
we're watching Delmon Young of the Twins sprint in from left field. My buddy says "that must suck every inning, running in from the outfield."
Then I reminded him - it never sucked when you knew you were going to bat the following half inning. Who hasn't sprinted in as fast as they could to make sure you got the "good helmet"??
... a final observation....
you see some weird things that Sox games, without question, but this one was something the camera phone couldn't pass up... wow.
