Poor Huddy’s ankle

I was going to write up a post about Tim Hudson's tragic injury, but this article on CBSSports.com says and shows everything I was going to share.

Eric Young seems like a good guy.

For a fan's perspective, please see Scott's comments on our blog's Facebook page.

Sending prayers and good thoughts to Tim and his family, and also to EY. I can't imagine accidentally ending someone's season - it would be really tough to handle.

Game Day Pictures: Braves at Phillies 7-5-13

My lovely friend Gena invited me to Philly and we had a really fun weekend. (Thank you so much!!) I haven't been feeling well so it's taken much longer than usual to get these pictures from Citizen's Bank Park edited and posted, and I still have pics from Saturday to edit as well. Here are some fun things, followed by the gallery of pictures...

♡ Gena took me straight from the airport to get a real cheesesteak. There are a lot of sandwiches in Philly.

♡ I was fascinated by the architecture around the city; there was always something to look at.

♡ I was fascinated by how rude everyone was. I don't mean "rude compared to Southerners", I just mean that I ran across a lot of people who were outright mean, like they were miserable and weren't going to rest until you were as miserable as they were. (More on our mean usher in Saturday's post.)

♡ Gena got some boys to throw baseballs to her. :)

♡ Gerald Laird got thrown out for arguing balls and strikes and he was TOTALLY JUSTIFIED and here are some pictures of him getting his G-Money's worth.

♡ Joey Terdoslavich's dad was sitting near us and was totally glowing with pride. Joey T got his first hit, too...

Just no.


1. Kimmie jersey in Mets colors. No.

2. Braves-themed Big Apples. No.

3. Rihanna pun. No.

(I might be slightly grumpy / sleep deprived from last night.)
