World Series In Person
So the MO came by tix to Game 4 and OH YEAH, WE WENT TO A WORLD SERIES GAME!

We got there early and walked around taking it all in. We lucked out and found a hidden souvenir stand where we only had to wait behind two or three other people. Most of the lines were more like 50 people long....
If you look closely, you can see President George Bush the First and the lovely Barbara. During the between-innings "Kiss-Cam" they got on the big screen and were very nice about it. It must be really odd to be watched everywhere you go.
It was lame to not be allowed to close the roof, but honestly, it was plenty loud with it open. I may have broken bones in my hands from clapping and I'm definitely hoarse from yelling. And the suites were quite reserved compared to the rest of the stadium....
But it was a helluva thing to be there!
