Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Blue Jays 6-9-12

Simba's first big league homer!

No beepee today - they had the alumni softball game beforehand. I know it's exciting to a lot of people, but when you watch it for a couple of years in a row...it's just a softball game. I'd rather see a home run derby, honestly.

But I don't schedule these things, so I took pics of what I could. We spent most of the game up in the 755 Club with Jenna (don't get the wings, they aren't worth $15) and I spent a little time with Twitter friends Rene' and Lauren O as well. Fun!

Johnny Estrada catching!

There are a few more pics from the game in the full gallery, mostly of Smoltzie. He seemed to be the star of the show anyway.

The Braves were celebrating the 20th anniversary of Sid Bream's slide, had the stage out and everything...

Pregame ceremony for Sid Bream. He ended his thank-you speech with a brief testimony of Jesus Christ, which was well-received by the crowd.

Yeah, he still amuses me. I was not amused by all Bowman's thinly veiled jabs at him on Twitter.

Oh yeah, Alison, LA Lauren, and I all thought it would be fun to wear our Escobar shirts. Mine is super-huge - I got it for $5 a couple of years ago - but theirs look great. :)
