Sandra and I drove out to Stockton to see the Ports play the Bakersfield Blaze. We sat in the $12 seats on the third base side, on the aisle. The game wasn't bad until about the 8th inning. To start the inning the Ports made errors on 4 consecutive batters. I don't recall ever seeing this at a pro game. Then one of the Blaze hit a home run and it turned into a 6 run inning. 4-3 turned into 10-3. Then in the 9th, the Blaze hit two more home runs and 10-3 turned into 14-3. Its an hour each way in the car to see such crappy baseball. There were some diehards like us who stayed until the bitter end. I rarely every leave a ball game early. I think the last time I did we were on the trip last year and parking was really tight. I suggested to the guys that we leave after the top of the 9th so we can get out easily. We did and we did.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
