Snake Charmer

Does this look like me?No?
Huh. It should...

I'm not going to talk about the situation with the Phoenix Coyotes and how sad I'll be if the bankruptcy hearing decides that they can move to Canada. I'm also not going to talk about the Red Wings leading the Penguins 3-2. Ugh. Instead, I'm going to talk about baseball. To take my mind off the sad state of hockey, I've been going to a lot of Diamondbacks baseball games. And whenever I go to the games, the Snakes always win (well, almost always).

Cuz I'm a snake charmer.

Last week I went to THREE baseball games in one week. (And 2 movies, too! It was a busy week!). On Tuesday, the NFBF scored us sweet suite tickets. There was free food and everything! This was my second game of the season and, because I was there, the Diamondbacks won!
Then Pat, Jamie and I went to the game on Friday. I'm gonna say that game doesn't count (they lost) since I wasn't really there. We got there late, we left early and even while I was there, I wasn't really there. I was sick again and I spent the majority of the time puking in the ladies room. Yeah, I know, I'm a fun date!

But I was well on Saturday and this time I got to enjoy the game. Jamie and I were pretty excited because it was Stephen Drew bobblehead day. Ok..ok...Jamie was pretty excited about it being bobblehead day. I'm still a newbie baseball fan and Stephen Drew is nobody to me. Sadly, we did not get to the game in time to be one of the first 25,000 fans to get a bobblehead. Poor Jamie was crushed.
I can't deal with a sad Jamie, so I created a sad-sounding story and convinced some poor schmuck to give me his bobblehead so I could give it to Jamie. And all was then right with the world. And then my presence caused the Diamondbacks to win again!!

Maybe I should go to a few more games and see if I can't get this team up above .500.

Oh no. He's serious about the costume. Sad Jamie is a bad thing. But let's actually talk about movies. You really should always include us in movie plans as that, unlike sports, is what we do best!
