ten years ago today i went to the dodger game

molli sean greg at the dodger game

with molli, sean, greg, basart, bonnie and charlie.

it was bonnie’s first game, and 1 year old sean’s 4th.

we were in the front row of the bleachers in right field.

back then it cost $6 a seat. today that same piece of bench costs $40.

first inning, im getting to my seat and robin ventura hit a home run right at my seat

but i had a beer in one hand and

another beer in the other probably

and i just stepped away from the ball and it hit my seat and bounced onto the field.

it may have struck one inch from the mitt i had brought

which of course was laying on the bench.

ten years later sean’s properly prepared to catch that bad boy.

update: Basart just showed me that Greg has the photo on his site:
