(errr rogers centre).
I am going to be at each of the following three games and I am wondering who else is going to be there. I will be in section 121, row 31, seats 13 & 14 (with my wife tonight). Feel free to stop by and say high. I will be wearing an authentic home white jersey (circa 1989, rawlings brand), a current model road hat, olive green shorts, and a black long sleeved undershirt. My A's gear of choice will change throughout the week and I will update this diary with the new wardrobe information and seat locations.
I know that TorontoAsfan is going tomorrow night. Who else is going?
I have a bet going with my blue jays fan friends again for this series. The loser of said bet has to pay the way for the winner to go to the top of the CN tower. Once at the top of the CN tower the winner gets to take a picture of the loser in a jersey of the winner's choice to commemorate said victory. We are also continuing our previous bet of the loser having to wear the winning teams jersey to baseball practice for the rest of the month. That was a sweet victory last time. I am thinking of busting out the 1980 Tony Armas spring training jersey for this one.
I like our chances for this series. The pitching matchups favour us and of course we have been on a roll of late. I am informed that local sports talk thinks the we are bottom feeders who the Blue Jays need to get fat against. Have they not looked at the A's June record or have they not noted that the A's are just 1.5 games back of the Scrub Jays? If the A's sweep this series they will have a better over all record that the Scrub Jays and given the understanding of local radio that would be especially sweet.
Haren is the only one of the A's starters that I have not seen in person this year (I went to all but his start of the opening homestand on a trip to visit my parents and my hometown) and I am looking forward to seeing him tonight. LETS GO OAKLAND!!!! OAKLAND WHAT!!!! LETS GO OAKLAND!!!!!! So, I intend to root the A's to .500 and beyond this week. Who else is here with me?
