I went to the Brave’s game. My buddy, Sheffer, has season tickets, lives about 10min from the stadium, and has a real Brian McCann jersey. I live in a constant state of jealously of Shef. He called me on Thursday night to see if I wanted to go and I was all over it. The Braves lost, of course. Mainly because I was there but also because they didn’t score as many runs as Texas.
We still had fun though. The highlights:
- Pregame: We ate at the EARL and I got an EARL burger. The EARL burger is one of the three burgers that caused the Wall Street Journal to proclaim that Atlanta has the best hamburgers in the country. I don’t know much about the WSJ, but I do know that I agree with their stance on hamburgers.
- Game: Brian McCann hit a homerun in the Moe’s fifth inning, which meant everyone in the stadium got a free Homewrecker burrito from Moe’s on Saturday. Just another reason Brian McCann is my favorite Brave.
- I got to meet Tyler Stanton. Tyler is a cyberfriend that I had never met in real life. I’m glad we got that first awkward meeting where you never know what to say out of the way, so next time we see each other, we can totally be BFF!
A couple families from church came over on Saturday night. I grilled hamburgers for everyone. It was the first time I had grilled hamburgers for anybody other than our little family. I was nervous from about Tuesday when LB told me about it until everyone was done eating Saturday night. I think it went well. No one threw up when they took a bite and there have been no reports of E. Coli. That is a successful dinner party as far as I am concerned, no vomiting or contracting of bacterial diseases. I probably have lower standards than most in regards to dinner parties.
I was supposed to go see a movie, but the day really got away from us. Mostly because of the 4hr naps our entire family took. Well, everyone but Ada. Apparently she played PBS Kids games on my laptop the entire time. She is more technologically savvy than I am.
I didn’t get to go see a movie, but thanks my business world background I was able to negotiate a much sweeter deal with LB. Instead of paying $10 to see one movie Sunday night, I am going to wait until the movies I want to see come to the $1 theater and see 10 movies spread throughout the summer. That is probably the best Father’s Day I could get. That and my family. But I get them all the time, I never get to go see a movie.
Did you have a pleasant Father’s Day?
