WE WON! WE WON, WE WON, WE WON, AND BRAD AUSMUS GOT A HOMER!!!! ::dances:: Alli, Reiko and I were there and it was SO FREAKING AWESOME!! It was just...WOW.
And after the game we waited on Crawford for the guys, but then we realized someone had told us wrong, so by the time we found where we were supposed to be, we'd missed most of the players.
We for sure saw Jeff Kent, who came out first in a black truck and sped off, Mike Gallo (I love him! I told him he was awesome and Alli said he rocked and he laughed and said thanks), Richard Hidalgo (he didn't stop, but he smiled and waved), Jeff Bagwell (he stopped and signed stuff for fans at the beginning of the driveway, but then he left...but Alli and I got his license plate number, XD), we THINK we may have seen Brad--he was either on the Harley or in the silver Mercedes. I'm betting on the Mercedes.
Who else did we see....We saw Raul Chavez. He actually pulled up to the curb, stopped, and signed, like a bunch of autographs, but I was feeling antisocial towards that backup catcher, so I didn't feel like getting an autograph. We missed Biggio and Clemens, who are the first ones to leave, but we saw a few others. It was neat.
Next time, we're getting there way earlier, we're staying late, and we're going to wait until one of us gets the autograph we really want--Alli wants Biggio, I want Ausmus, Reiko wants Ensberg. It WILL happen, people! We are bound and determined!
But yeah...GREAT DAY AT THE BALLPARK, even though we were on the terrace deck and it was an unholy state of hotness. But oh well--SO WORTH IT. ::dies:: Once I was there, I didn't want to leave, and once I left, I wanted to go back. We HAVE to go back.
Clemens was freaking AMAZING today. 7 k's, dude. Four hits, one run, in seven innings. ::drools:: He's just...wonderful.
And tonight, at seven, we're watching the A's game. XDD. Yay!!!!
By the way, for anyone that cares, Ausmus drives a silver Mercedes, Bagwell has a black H2 (we'll give you the license plate number if you really want it, XD), Clemens drives a burnt orange H2, Gallo has a white truck, and Kent has a really uber-nice black truck. Yay!
We're SO stalking Ensberg next...
