"So Let it Be Written... So Let it Be Done"

The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world.

Hopefully it won't rain...

I'm going to see them tonight.... and have dinner at the Gator Pit, which is the barbeque/cookout area underneath some of the seats. All you can eat hot dogs, sausages, chicken wings, spare ribs, steak tips, salad, macaroni salad and corn on the cob, plus soda all for $25 and you get to see the game, too. What a deal!

I will tell you how the game went at some point with a nice, tidy update of this here post. Ciao!

The Lowell Spinners are the class A (short season) minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. There are actually four class A minor league teams in the Red Sox system, and Lowell is the second lowest level which means these are kids pretty much fresh out of college that likely won't have an impact in Boston for 3-5 years.

The Lowell Spinners (10-11) lost, 10-3 to the Jamestown (NY) Jammers (13-6), who were clearly the superior team tonight.

Still, it's good to get out to the ball park once in a while and have fun. And fun we had! We go to one Spinners game a year, with members of my mom's senior citizen program.

And towards the end of this month, V and M will get to experience their first live baseball game. More on that later.

seriously, if i didn't know about your baseball addiction, i'd think this was more about you attending some sort of weaving demonstration.

and can i say - what a lousy logo they have - ok, i guess that's supposed to be red thread wrapped around a baseball bat, but really...

d: questions answered in the body of the post.

ag: it may have well been a weaving demonstration tonight as the home team was overmatched.

The Spinners logo is not the best one I've seen, but it works well enough.

Cleverest sports team logo I've ever seen was the old Milwaukee Brewers logo from the 1980's and 1990's.

Funny, i still can't think of your mum, or really any of our parents generation as 'seniors'. But being that my dad is turning 60 in september and his older sister is closing in on 70...

(best not to think about how close 40 is for us, either...)
