The remarkable thing was the length of the lines outside the men's rooms. I've been going to games for what seems like a thousand years and don't remember having to wait that long to do what needed to be done. Missed a full inning waiting in the anxious queue as I craned my neck looking toward the field or for a TV screen. Fortunately nobody scored while I was indisposed.
But how about that Chris Sale? I'd say he's a keeper.
Agreed. As STH in Section 158, it was great sitting in the sun and the only time I was really cold was those times the sun would go behind the clouds. I dressed warm enough expecting no sun at all but thankfully, I've had much colder experiences at USCF - especially most of April 2011. In that regard, I think we lucked out yesterday.
The bathroom scene was a mess (pardon the pun) but I've come to expect that on Opening Day. I ended up using the port-a-johns on the Gate 6 ramp (near 154/155)
