Telling Richie Sexon

an overpaid stiff......................AWESOME

Watching JD Drew break
up a no-hitter in the
bottom of the 8th inning......VERY AWESOME

Spending 9 hours today
with my dad (who just
turned 80 last week).
Talking baseball and
enjoying some very
precious time together.........PRICELESS


Moral of the story:

I don't care what it costs.  If you have an opportunity to spend some
time with somebody you love, DO IT.  Because you never know how
much time you have left. 

It cost me $2,398, but it was one of the best days of my life.

Maybe you should have made it 12 beers, it would have only cost you .006216328% more than it did.  Only a drop in the bucket, when you break it down.  Glad you enjoyed it, sorry you team cost you.
