Alphonso, El Duque and I gathered this weekend with friends and family to watch the last two games of the Tampa series.  After the jump: my account. 
Refreshments Consumed (Partial List):
  • Entenmann's Donuts.

  • Other beer.
  • Wine, one bottle, consumed in minutes by one person.
  • Soft drinks.
  • Hot dogs.
  • Cheeseburgers.
  • A few probably excellent side dishes I didn't even look at because I so desperately needed a cheeseburger.
  • Pop Secret®.
  • Several outstanding cheeses with two kinds of terrible crackers (Note: I brought the crackers).
  • A frozen pizza that was surprisingly pretty good.
  • These weird candies from a plain white bag that were--and my memory is fuzzy on this--licorice squares stacked with candy squares that weren't licorice.
  • I know I'm forgetting something.

Things Said (Partial List):
  • "If he hits into a double play, let's do a shot."--Alphonso
