Opening Day, and Bratinée Games



Yup, that's my Bulletin Board of Happiness. I'm going to the games on the 6th and 9th. Because I work mostly evenings and weekends, Opening Night is probably the only weekday night game I'll be going to.

Here's something obscure and trivial that rotation candidates Scott Richmond and Ricky Romero may end up having in common: it could be that they will have both seen their ML debuts on Annoying Kiddy Afternoon Games.

If Romero is the number four guy, he'd be throwing on Thursday April 9th. That's an afternoon Bratinée, complete with Teletoon school thingies being handed out to the little crotch products. Scott Richmond, likewise, saw his debut on camp brat day, July 30 '08. I was at that game, after lying like a rug tactically removing myself from work that day.

I was in luck - the kids around me were older teens from a martial arts camp who were genuinely into the game. Overall, the kids were a good, loud crowd. I'll at least give them credit for that. And at least there was no line up for beer. As long as I can blast the Fan 590 into my ears, I'm a happy camper. (Ha - see what I did there?)

I learned the hard way last year to check the schedule to make sure there aren't any "Bratinees". Had to deal with screaming school children while I was hungover - not good. Not good at all!

Unfortunately, those rare weekday day games are the ones that work out best for me, in terms of transpo and still earning a living. :/ Do you have season seats? Next year, I need to make a deal with a season ticket holder who works M-F 9-5, and can't make the bratinees. Screw the flex pack, I'll just buy their unusable tickets. Win/win.

Season seats? Hell no! I wish. Though your plan is probably the best idea. I better start making buddies with some season seats holders at Opening Day...

I need to win the 6/49, and that would just solve all problems.
