The Curse of the Bambino...

Ok, so I am not ridiculously into baseball (and by not ridiculously, I mean not really at all). - Sorry Brian!
And, to be honest I am not even entirely sure what the curse of the Bambino is. (I vaguely know it has to do with Babe Ruth and some Red Sox losing streak from being traded... Basically, whatever the premise of Fever Pitch is, since everything I learn about sports comes from movies, or not being able to totally tune out my dad rambling on, forgetting I am his daughter not his son.)

This was the most normal we could get Aaron to look - believe me there are like 15 attempts to take this one photo!

But, Joe gave me tickets to see the Mariners and the Angels. (Apparently, I was on his REALLY good side this week!) So, we went. And, miraculously it didn't even rain until after the fireworks. And equally miraculously the Angels did not score even 1 point (goal, run, whatever you call it!) This is the 4th or 5th game I have been to this season with our tickets and they have NEVER even scored!
Joe said I was cursed and that I wasn't able to go to anymore games. Then 10 minutes later, he came in and said "we" (meaning "he") bought tickets to the playoffs and to let him know when I wanted to go. Love that man!

You put two pictures of Dan and I up like we are some cute engaged couple. What are you trying to do to my single, available status?! I need to look as available as possible these days.

Ah ha ha ha... Robbie, It's not really intentional, but you two are just so D... photogenic. Plus, we all know guys love the chase. You should thank me for upping your stock value. You're welcome.

I heard if your picture is up twice you are officially dating!

Dan is going to be SO stoked when he finds that rule out!

so how does one get back in your good graces? there was a time when you used to offer me Angels tickets. do you need more Diet Coke? i can oblige.

Rob! I offered to give you tickets twice. I even had them in my pretty little hands (not nearly as pretty or little as Robin's). You made other plans... both times. But, I HEART it when you buy me diet coke... yes please! In case you missed it both times... Ralphs is having a sale.

Seymour Glass said...

both times i had a legitimate conflict, one that i forgot in the moment because i was so excited to go see an Angels game. and actually i had heard that Ralph's is having a sale on Diet Coke right now. can't quite remember the context for that piece of information, but i remember it nonetheless.

I love baseball. Sorry I couldn't be there. :(

Seymour Glass said...

i don't think they actually want baseball fans there. then they might feel guilty about their lack of enthusiasm for the pitcher's WHIP and the hitter's OPS.

Oh Robin....you really shouldn't hide your true feelings from everyone about me....we all know that you are deeply enamored with me :). Thanks Ali for exposing us!
