Spring Training #3  
Went to a night game last night against the Orioles. This time our seats were behind 1st base. No pics this post as the important ones are very blurred. When donna88keys gets her post up, I'll link to it. You'll want to see them when I continue.

Now, last night was the last game in Port St Lucie this year so they pulled out all the stops. For the first ceremonial first pitch (sounds silly, but bear with me) was the Chief of Police for PSL. Now who can top that, you ask? Why actor Wilford Brimly. Ah, but we're not done yet.

Of course before the game there are lots of comings and goings on the field so I paid little attention to the golf cart that stopped in front of our section. I should have. On the screen they then played what I knew to be a clip from Happy Gilmore. Do you see where I'm going with this? Yep, Adam Sandler was there. According to the announcer, Sandler had just finished filming in Fort Pierce (the next town up from PSL). So of course everyone goes crazy.

So the ballgame starts and there are some great plays by both teams and it takes just about under an hour for 4 innings. They always have contests and what-not between innings and since one of their sponsors is a PGA club, they have a chipping contest. Now, the minute the announcer says "Straight from his win at the 'Name of Tournament I Can't Remember'" I was like, "No, it can't be. No way." But it was. Tiger Woods. He lost at the contest though. : )

The Mets won 2-1 in just 2 hours!

Oh, and coquillagement I forgot my phone last night or you would have heard this all first hand.

hah, pretty funny with the guest stars! And glad Ollie didn't get bombed. I was wondering why we didn't get the traditional phone call...

That was one of my thoughts. "She'll be wondering why I don't call!"
