The ever exciting Brewers work outing

Went to the game tonight as part of our yearly work outing at the Brewers game. It was a good game to go to, except I was very worried that all the opportunities squandered early on were going to come back and bit the Brewers. We had decent seats and were right by McGehee when he dropped the pop up. To be honest, I looked away because I assumed he was going to catch the ball. I saw the highlights once I got home and I am still not sure how he dropped the ball.

Anyhow, getting back to the work aspect, it is always exciting to see the random people that show up to this thing.
  • You have the ladies that know absolutely nothing and are taking photos the whole time and spend most of the game with their back to the field chatting up those around them. They tend to get up to go get some food in the middle of an AB. Tonight it was with 2 outs and 2 guys on for the Mets when the game was tight.
  • You have the guy with some baseball knowledge who feels like he needs to broadcast all he knows to the whole section. Unfortunately I didn't hear anyone tell the group that JJ Hardy is a great fastball hitter.
  • You have the a-hole who is on his cell phone discussing work projects. That was me for a half an inning tonight.
  • You have the guy asking why everyone boos Sheffield. From that point on he boos Sheffield and still doesn't have a complete guess as to why.
  • You have the people whose highlight of the night was doing the wave.
  • You have the people who complain about beer prices. Yah, beer is expensive at a baseball game. If you don't want to pay that much, don't drink at the game.
  • Finally, you have the true measure of every non-baseball fan. Those who boo when a player on the Brewers gets an intentional walk.

I was praying for Hardy to get that triple and hit for the cycle so that I wouldn't have to hear about Chad Moeller ever again. So close.

What a pickup Casey Mcgehee was. I'm not sure what he said to his helmet, but I don't think they are on speaking terms.

And you know the Brewers are hitting well when both Cattalanotto and Bill Hall are getting multiple hits.
