Will there be a live (video) feed from within the stadium in order to allow the international segment of readers and/or contributors to participate in the festivities during their supper.

Secondly, where will the party be seated so that we can watch you scrambling for fouls or homeruns.
Please, do fight. If not able to antagonate the rest of the crowd, just start a group brawl

Thank you!

Parson Tom said...

Yes! A group brawl would help us pick you out in the crowd. I'm sure you'll be able to find some guy wearing a Boston hat. Steal it and then beat him.

If I were coming I’d like to sit behind our glorious leader to offer soothing neck/shoulder rubs during tense game action. It’s the least a minion could do.

Have fun you guys and don’t fight over proximity to duque!

Ferken thou Hal!

Ok, Who's compiling Duque's bail money?

There’s a dead seagull on my street. I wonder if that’s an auspicious sign? Who is our starting pitcher today? I have to walk the dog, drink my gallon of coffee, give him another quick walk and then start out for this day of destiny. I predict at least 70 posts in this thread today. I predict no photos, so as to protect the innocent. I predict a lot of fucked up syntax and typos because I will be talking into my Contraption. I predict that I must get back to this sacred and holy dog walk. Later

I have already cursed out four joggers and 25 pedestrians.

Bitty, Paxton. As in Pax Romana. Maybe Pax Yankeetorum. I forget my forms.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

The morning news is reporting traffic is very light today.

Coincidence?

I think not!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

"There’s a dead seagull on my street."

So, you're bringing lunch?

13bit said...

Big Maple, eh? At least we'll have something to talk about.

Clearing the decks. Hound lying in his one spot of sunlight on the floor of the Bat Cave. Finishing emails. Going to do another walk and then blast off in a little bit. T-minus 75 minutes until liftoff. Going to meet T. Shirts on an undisclosed subway platform and hope that we can make it through the asteroid belt in midtown as we hurtle towards destiny.

and yes, Rufus, gull kebab for all...

Rufus,

You should bring it. And then throw it on the field after a home run, starting a new tradition like those people who bring octopi to the Detroit Red Wings games.

For those of us who plan to chow down at the concession stands, I'd suggest bringing extra underwear. It's always a wise move.

The game is on MLB Network today. I expect to see a ‘Moon Chris Davis’ movement at some point during the game

Here is a theory for you guys to discuss.

I think that Aaron Judge has stopped taking his, "Supplement" because of all the lat issues. This would have three main effects.

1) Loss of power.
2) Loss of bat speed
3) Loss of confidence in his "normal" swing.

Doug...shhhhh

Amazing day. I laughed as continuously as I did through this Duque post. Great fun, and loved meeting everyone.

My favorite part? Discovering that The Warbler was every bit as hot as she's said she USED to be! Used to be, nothing! And very handsy, too, not that I'm complaining!

ranger_lp said...

Yes Doug...don't let that out...

The only way to track our activity is to put a Go-Pro in the nesting seagulls!

It was a great outing indeed!
