Last July The Wife & I saw our only regular-season Arizona Diamondbacks game of '09. We sat in the All You Can Eat section, & watched my Dad's beloved Pittsburgh Pirates spank The Snakes 10-3. Earlier tonight we sat in the All You Can Eat seats & watched the D-bax take on the Pirates again.

Maybe we need to sit somewhere else next time.

We really thought the local lads had a shot tonight, as the starter was the usually brilliant Dan Haren...

But alas, Haren had a dismal night, & the starter for the Bucs, Zach Duke, massacred the D-bax lineup. The proceedings began to resemble a baseball game in the later innings, starting with a majestic two-run homer by Mark Reynolds in the 7th. The D-bax actually got the tying run to the plate in the 8th, but to no avail; the final was 6-3. Plus, the excellent catcher Miguel Montero came out early with a knee injury. Groan!

Ah well, the hot dogs, peanuts, chips, popcorn & pop were tasty...

Oh yeah, one more thing: I still think Pirates outfielder Lastings Milledge has the coolest name of anyone now in baseball, with the possible exception of Team South Africa's Gift Ngoepe...


  1. They don't call the Bucs the lumber company for nuthin.
