I’ve met bloggers in real life before, but never experienced anything quite like this! It is strange to say things about spending $11 at Taco Bell out loud, and have the person standing next to me understand what the heck I’m talking about. Or to stand around sipping beers and breaking down the swings of Royals minor leaguers. And by “strange,” I mean AWESOME.
-Today was just for season ticket holders, so it wasn’t insanely crowded.
-To the guy who exclaimed: “I love your blog!” to me as you walked by: You’re awesome. Thanks for that ego boost!
-Dayton Moore just roamed the floor for part of the evening. Whatever your opinion of him as a general manager…that is pretty admirable.
-Moore only mentioned the Gil Meche $12.4 million thing in passing, but it was easy to see in his face that he was still sort of reeling from the gesture. Seriously: athletes just don’t DO that. It was one of the first genuinely surprising things to happen in sports in a long time.
-There is a sculpture (?) on the wall in the OPCC that, when viewed from below, looks like golden bacon!
-There is also this painting, for some reason.
-Mike Swanson kept mistakenly referring to “real” reporters instead of using the more polite “mainstream” or whatever. It was funny.
-I was interviewed about the Digital Digest experience by FSKC. Ben Hemmen (my boss!) tweeted this picture of me getting interviewed.
