Well, that series sucked.
On a positive note, I was able to decide on some early Christmas shopping....this year I'm buying Scott Baker a strike zone for Christmas. I kind of like the one the Boston pitchers use...I'll probably ask them where they got theirs . Let me know if you want to chip in.
But leaving the ugly AL East roadtrip behind us (as is necessary every friggin' year, apparently), today is a pretty amazing day.
Firstly...it's Trevor Plouffe day. As you can imagine, this is pretty exciting for Those Girls. This has been a much talked about and highly anticipated eventuality here. I could not be more pleased. Well...OK. I could possibly be more pleased if he was getting called up for a game I was actually going to see.
BUT...that brings me to part TWO of the best day ever.
Happy Garrett Jones Action Figure Eve everyone! Lipgloss & Baseball is already representing in Pittsburgh, and Those Girls are flying in to meet her later this evening. Tomorrow's festivities include a ballpark tour and probably pictures of the Garrett Jones action figures in questionable poses before the Braves/Pirates game. Also, cramming ourselves full of Primanti Bros. sandwiches and mixing our own slushies. I'm pretty excited to see Jason Heyward in action too. AND, we're staying in the same hotel as Davy Jones from the Monkees this weekend. So, we have to leave some time for awkward encounters there too. Busy busy busy.
It's going to be a good good weekend. I just have to keep telling myself that as I try to survive 5 hellish hours of work in the meantime.
