So I'm going to see the Riverhawks tonight... and it makes me feel good that even if wealthy bastards will kill this season, I can always watch minor league baseball.
I mean, it's that hometown feeling you get while watching a game that you paid $5 for. Hell... I can even say I watched a promising Dallas Cowboys QB play here five years ago... that, and stand by Mitch Robinson as he got hit in the shnoodies by a errant baseball. :>
And you get two for one. Saw a twi-night doubleheader in Frederick between the Keys and the Cannons on Saturday night for some double-barrel Carolina League action. Two seven-inning games of great ball and fewer Washington area yuppies who pay $35 to bullshit during the game(sorry about that rant but jesus I was sitting in box seats at an O's-Mariners day game a couple of weeks back and these four goofs in front of us were talking about and paying attention to anything but the game, even when Ichiro fouled off a long drive two feet over from them).
Reggie has a point. I don't know if I completely agree with him or not, but there is some logic to his argument. It really is quite astounding that when one thinks about it, Bonds could have easily reached 100 home runs in 2001 had he been pitched to.
