Some more facts:

I only had 6 beers.  My dad had 3 and I bought one for an older gentleman sitting
on the other side of my dad.  And yes, I drove home.  No big deal.

Richie Sexon is HUGE.  But after few beers he didn't look so big.  LOL.  He looked
right at me and just smiled.  His 2007 salary is $15,500,000 which I think is a lot for
somebody who is regularly among the Major League leaders in whiffs (154 K's last year).

It's about a 2.5 hour drive up to Boston so I usually only go to 1 game a year.  It's been
5 years since I took my dad to a game.  Great seats and the Matsuzaka mania made it
a very nice night.  Felix Hernandez was nothing short of amazing.  This kid is special.

Thanks fellas.  Glad everybody enjoyed the thread.

I remeber a time when I was about 13 years old, when my Dad and I couldn't agree on anything.
    I thought everything he said was wrong, he knew nothing about life, or what was going on,,,he just didn't get it.....
        The only thing we could talk about was baseball. We still argued, but, not as much.
 
 
Fast forward to when I was about 25....My Dad and I still talked baseball, but, now when I asked his opinions, they always seemed to be in line with mine.
           I also asked his advice, and when I followed his advice, things turned out really well.
I remeber thinking to myself ,  " man, this guy is really special, and really very smart"
 
 
ONE THING STILL AMAZES ME TO THIS DAY.......
