Corey and I are die hard A's fans.
Thank goodness he bleeds green and gold like I do...I'm not sure this would be working out so well if he was a Giants fan. Just kidding! Sort of.
This past weekend we went to our first A's game of the season. We watch them every single night on TV, but we hadn't had a chance to make it out to Oakland yet this summer. We were overdue. So we picked up Corey's brother, Keith, and his buddy and headed out to the ballgame at the Coliseum.
Me and the Weglin boys.
My happy place.
What am I looking at?
There we go! My baseball boy and I.
There wasn't much action in this game vs the Detroit Tigers, and that's mostly because Justin Verlander was pitching. Corey is a huge A's fan, but as a pitcher, he appreciates watching talented pitching. And this guy is talented.
Verlander was throwing gas. 95mph. No big deal.
One of the few A's highlights was a solo home run by Seth Smith.
Unfortunately, the A's lost this one. But it was still awesome to be in the stands and taking in the live action. I swear I hear "Let's Go Oakland clap, clap, clapclapclap" cheers in my dreams. And I love it.
Love baseball. Love summertime. Love my A's.
