More seconds of fame

May 3, 2018

Warning. Baseball heavy blog.

Yesterday Paxton pitched a great game and our EH cards got several looks during the game.

As it turns out, it was also Ichiro’s last game as a Mariner player this year. He is transitioning to front office duties. Carl dug out a sign he made for ichiro’s last game the first time he was a Mariner. I think the date on the sign is October 3, 2010. (Pack rat? It is a homemade sign.) The sign celebrated his 10 seasons with at least 200 hits in a row.

And it was picked up by the local mlb coverage. (Picture courtesy of our seatmate who was taking the night off from the ballpark.)

And the Mariners won, in rather efficient style. [This means we get home before it is too late.]

Interesting expressions. Carl is keeping score. I am trying to keep warm (sitting on my hands). Kevin is … I don’t know what he’s thinking about.

Going back to Tuesday and the Mohai exhibit. I’m not really sure what the neon is from. The next picture is Quincy Jones visiting his and the kid’s alma mater, Garfield High School.

And since we were in South Lake Union, a picture of south Lake Union.

Yesterday was our first in-person Mariner game in a while. They lost.😐, but it was still a fun game. The pitcher, Paxton, a Canadian, struck out 16 batters. Our group puts up “EH” cards for each strikeout. (Rhymes with “K”, Canadian, it’s a joke) He kept us busy!
