Chorizy-E here to round up the weekend with “the Good, the Bad, the Ugly”……..a little snippet of what the 108ers see when attending games for a Sox homestand.
– Leury Garcia – In addition to his 2 HR game this weekend, he’s getting on base quite a bit. With a .340 OBP, he’s not quite Adam Eaton, but he’s a more than respectable lead off hitter. That is something I didn’t expect from him and I really didn’t even expect from anyone on the roster. To be completely honest, I didn’t think Leury’s OPS would break .340.
– Bathroom Etiquette – Apparently, people read our article on bathroom etiquette. With the droves of people that showed up to get what may be the most annoying alarm clock ever, we assumed there would be awful bathroom lines. But with the exception of one or two times, there were almost no lines this weekend. Congratulations on a job well done!
– Modelo – Our favorite beer vendor had Modelo/Corona all weekend, which saved us from having to muscle down Bud and Bud Light.
– Throwing Home Run Balls back on the Field – This is still happening and it is extremely stupid. Look at the gif below and decide if you want to be the joyous kid that caught the ball and did not throw it on the field or the wretched piece of Minnesota trash that flips off a child.
– The wave – We rail on the wave quite a bit. I know some people like it, but like it or not, the wave on Sunday was with the entire first baseline almost empty. So it really just showed off how many empty seats there were.
– MySoxSummer’s first pitch – A very cool moment occurred on Thursday where one of our own got to throw out the first pitch. It was pretty awesome, well that he got to do it, not the actual execution of the pitch. It was basically an eephus pitch. Now that would have been cool had that been his intention. But I believe it was best described as looking like “he was throwing the ball to his 1 year old daughter.” But seriously, big props to him for doing that. I prolly would have pissed myself.
– This guy – We have no idea who this guy is, but we were pretty sure he was dead when we happened upon him. Beefloaf asked him if he was ok and as he awoke, he flipped me off as I got this wonderful pic. I am pretty proud of our fellow Sox fans though. As you can see, despite his state, nobody felt compelled to abscond with his Hawk alarm clock. I checked on that spot today and he was no longer there. I like to think that he woke up refreshed to Hawk’s voice, brushed himself off, and went to work at the hospital where he is a world renowned brain surgeon.
