sitting so close, i got some great photos with the 24x monocular setup of the nikon 950. i just wished i could be on the right field as well, so i could shoot right handed batters like manny ramirez or dante bichette. i was able to get good photos of right handed pitcher nomo from left field.
we sat in front of these two middle aged couples who just wouldn't stop talking and asking the dumbest questions. the men talked baseball but it was obvious from the critical way they talked about the team that they're not true fans. sure enough, end of the 7th inning with the red sox trailing, they left. their women talked stupid stuff that only white suburban couples would talk about, like property values and sending their kids to private school. i wanted to turn around and shout a few choice obscenities in their face. luckily, those anger management classes are really helping me through life's little crisises.
even behind nomo's pitching the red sox lost tonight, their first lost against the devil rays in many games (14 games?). tampa bay deserved to win, it was getting downright embarassing the number of times they lost against the red sox! normally i'd be devastated over a red sox loss, but for some reason tonight i feel very at peace. maybe it was due to those good seats we got! with seats like those, who's got time to be depressed?
