Tammy, SJ, Tammy's friends and their new baby, Catherine and I went to the game Friday night. They've played pretty well at the other games I've attended this year -- what happened tonight, boys?!
Well, a lot of them were/are sick. MattE seriously looked like he was going to keel over. When their illnesses have run their course, I think we'll be back in first in no time. Just think, when you have the flu (real flu, not a cold), you stay home from work and lay on the couch and drink lots of fluids. No one wants you at work, infecting everyone else. These guys have to come in when they're sick, put on all their gear, sit in the sweltering on-field heat, maybe even come in and run or play? Not to mention...start?! Crazy.
Catherine, Jenna and I watched BP together before meeting up with Tammy and SJ. Here are some pictures...

My little friend SJ sure loves her Dippin Dots! twitter.com/BravesLove/sta…

"This is the 16 shirt you got for me." "I'm going up to go tell Mom I'm finished with my Dippin Dots." "I'm gonna blow bubbles now." "Where's Brian McCann? Oh, there he is. GO BRIAN!" I love her, haha.
Me: My cousin's going to go talk to that boy.
SJ: Which boy?
Me: That one in the #26 jersey...see? She's talking to him now.
SJ: Ohhh... *stares*
Catherine wrote this up...
The guy seating across the aisle from us looked strikingly similar to Beachy. Same smile, hair color, etc. I pointed this out to Larn and she convinced me to go talk to him. So, when his buddies left and he was sitting alone and I worked up the nerve and went and sat in the seat directly in front of him and the conversation went as follows.
Catherine: Hey I noticed you are wearing an Uggla jersey but you look a lot like my favorite Brave… so I was wondering if you happened to be his relative or brother.
Catherine:*pause* (look dead in his eyes like you know exactly who I’m talking about) Brandon Beachy
So I just shrugged my shoulders and said alright and walked off. Let’s look at the facts: 1. They look so much alike. 2. He did not have a Southern accent. 3. What guy would deny being a Beachy so quickly unless you were prepared to do so before hand??
(the next morning)
Larn, I gotta add one more thing – he’s not as good-looking as Beachy.
