Of all nights to fall asleep

I tried to wait it out. I mean, it was every-other-Saturday 13-run night. We knew what was going to happen.
I nodded out with the Orioles on and woke up with the Nats wrapping things up. Didn't even have to change channels. I have no clue what time it was at that point.

Checking the box score now to get details on what happened. Someone hit a grand slam? This is like a trip in the way-back machine. I used to fall asleep listening to the Senators on the radio and then devour the box score in the morning.

Of course, back then I couldn't check the video. Heck, I feel like I was there. I wonder how many people were still there at that point? Watch the slam video. You can hear distinct clapping sounds.

I sure hope Dunn doesn't get traded. He's the one guy who moves you to the edge of your seat when he comes up. When you follow a team that doesn't provide a lot of highlights, that's worth something.

My son and I waited through the entire rain delay and I must say it was worth it. We moved down to the lower level seats in right CF (my normal seats are in the scoreboard pavillion) and were riding Tony Gwynn jr the whole game. I've never heckled the son of a HOFer before. I told him Dunn was gonna hit the grand slam, which he then proceeded to blast over Gwynn's head.

What is the deal with Lannon's eyes? Is he using eye liner and mascara?

The more Dunn strikes out, the less I move toward the edge of my seat, especially in the first few innings.

Close game, late innings? I might move a little closer. Maybe.

More irritation than elation when Dunn steps into the box.
