First Opening Day!
Luke attended his second baseball game today (for some reason, people always seem surprised that he attended his first at just one month old — as if I’d allow my son to have missed the night Jay Buhner was inducted into the M’s Hall of Fame). But it was his first opener, so that’s a big deal. He cried when Richie Sexson hit his second homer of the game; got a bit too loud there for a minute. Other than that he had a great time, and certainly got more out of it than his first game, when he mostly just slept. We employed a “sit for one inning, walk around for one inning” plan that kept him pretty happy. There’s a picture of us after the “more” link.
Yeah, my beard’s getting a bit out of control — but I don’t have to shave until school starts in a month, so dammit, I’m not shaving.
This was probably my 10th or so Opening Day game, and I can’t remember one at which I paid less attention to the actual game… I’d be hard-pressed to give you any impressions of how Moyer threw, Valdez’ defense or much else, for that matter. I also can’t remember an opener at which I had more fun. What a great day to be a dad.
