Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Marlins 7-3-13

it rained alllll night

it rained alllll night

Totally didn't go up to our real seats (my church bought group tickets), and instead said hi to an usher friend and sat under cover. We couldn't see the scoreboard but we had TVs overhead that even showed replays! So that was cool.

Remember how I have plans to open a t-shirt shop? Well, I wore my #36 sample shirt last night and Alison had to talk me off the ledge of thinking it was unlucky. "It's raining!" she said. Well yeah, but it's raining for the Marlins too. And because of the rain, not many pictures came out well. Here we go...

Eddie and Luis don't care about the rain. It's rainy season right now in Venezuela. No big deal.

I feel like I don't talk about Anthony Varvaro enough here. I don't dislike him...I just don't have much to say?

Full gallery here. See you tomorrow and Saturday in Philly, boys! I haven't been to an away game since 2010 in Chicago, and I'm really excited to 1. eat a real cheesesteak, 2. see my friend Gena, and 3. experience 40k Philly fans. I'm just hoping my awesome new road navy jersey doesn't get destroyed. :)

Braves Live will showcase aid to the Oklahoma tornado victims on July 4

------------------------------

SPORTSOUTH SHOWCASES LOCAL EFFORTS TO HELP OKLAHOMA TORNADO VICTIMS

 Special Feature to Air July 4th During Braves LIVE

SportSouth is paying tribute to the Moore, Oklahoma tornado victims with a special feature airing during Atlanta Braves pregame and postgame coverage on July 4.  Moore was hit by a devastating tornado on May 20 that took the lives of 24 people and injured hundreds.

“The American Way” feature showcases ways the nation’s baseball and softball communities pitched in to help Oklahoma recover, rebuild, and memorialize those who were lost.  Efforts from across the country are highlighted, including those of the Atlanta Braves’ wives, who sold autographed baseballs in brown paper bags throughout the stands to raise funds for storm victims.

“The American Way” will air July 4 during Atlanta Braves pregame coverage starting at 6:30 p.m. ET before the Braves take on the Marlins.

------------------------------

I got to see a snippet of the program that will air, and what I saw was breathtaking footage. We had a lot of tornadoes here when I was a kid, but never sustained this kind of damage and I never knew anyone who died. I'm sure the efforts of the Braves, Braves wives, and all those who donated will be very appreciated by the community. Thank you all for your time and efforts to help rebuild Moore, Oklahoma.

Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Dbacks 6-29-13

No one wanted Prado to go, most of all Prado himself.

The day our Marteen got traded, Alison and I made plans to go to all the Dbacks games we could. Then Real Life happened, and the only day we could both make it was Saturday. (Alison went on Sunday too.) In spite of neither of us caring much about the alumni softball game, we went early. This is the best thing that happened:

"Did your dad teach you how to run?"

Host: "Did your dad teach you how to run?"
LJ: "Uh...no."
Johnny Estrada: "HAHAHA"

 

We saw a few pitchers warm up, but the Braves didn't do beepee.

hi Marteen. We missed you and your warmups.

hi Marteen. We missed you and your warmups.

And this is the point in the game where I tried to remember to take pictures of all the players, but here was Marteen, and then I saw Jonny and EO in the dugout all being all cute, and there are a lot of pictures of them. And Freddie, who was also making great faces.

For some reason, the pictures uploaded into the gallery out of order. I usually post fairly chronologically but I guess I won't today! Oops. Also, my camera is having focus issues again. It's in the shop now.

Important things to know. We won, a lot. Marteen looked sad. We burned three bullpen pitchers in the 7th. Marteen looked sad. We were all sad that Marteen was in gray instead of cream pants. Oh, and apparently the Dbacks cut Ske right before this series. He would have gotten a good ovation too.

Full gallery here. You know what to expect. ;)
