Oooh Oh Oooohhh, Oooooh Oh Oooooh

The Braves were in town last week, and unfortunately they dropped 2 out of 3 to the Natinals which has them firmly planted in the last spot of the division.

Frank, Matt, and I went to the game on Thursday evening and had partially obstructed view seats in left field. Who knew Nationals park had Obs View?! Anyway, it was a pitchers' duel for the most part. Around the 8th inning, Frank made a comment about how the Nationals pitcher had made eye contact with Destiny and she was walking over to him.

A no-hitter was in progress! So, I did what any rational Braves fan would do in that situation: I started talking about the no-hitter, I was tweeting at Bill Simmons trying to get ESPN to cut in on the game, anything I could think of to spoil the no-no.

It worked!

I'm all for great pitching, and I'd love to see a no hitter in person some day - but not against the Braves!

All in all it was a fun evening, we even got to see Jason Heyward come out of the dugout to pinch hit and drive in a couple runs.

The best part of the evening was a group of 10-12 year old girls about two sections over from us. They were obviously on a field trip of some kind and they were from the south. We know this because A) they were either wearing Braves shirts or pink & green attire B) a few of them had sunglasses on croakies C) they cheered and chanted and tomahawk chopped for the Braves all night! It was wonderful.

Go Braves!
