Not to be all sappy

But I darn near cried when Zimmerman came up and gave Sir Strasburg the hat and jersey. Maybe I actually did. Nobody home but the dogs to refute my claim that I'm not some old sap.

Crowd count? Didn't look to be all that many beyond the youngsters who were clearly imported in for the festivities. I thought about going up but what do you do between 3 and 5? Go to the Ugly Mug is what I was going to do but I opted to stay home and do some actual work so I could go to Blogger Day on Sunday. Missed the first one, don't want to miss this one.

I felt bad for my former colleagues in the media. Wicked hot, it looked like. I hope they get some more access to Strasburg later, away from the masses.

Anyway, welcome aboard young man. Expectations aren't great or anything. A championship by 2011, please.

Man, they're really cramming it in right about now, aren't they? Rizzo presser yesterday, Strasburg event today, STH picnic tomorrow and Blogger Day on Sunday too? Wow. I hope Ted is paying OT to all the FO public relations and customer service folks who have to put together and run these events. (But not so much OT that they'll have to raise ticket prices to cover it, of course.)

I can't make that picnic. Well, I could. But I can't stay for the game so it isn't worth the drive just for a dog and some chips.
Busy week in NatsTown indeed. Be nice if they could manage to win a game, too, to go along with the other stuff.

I hear it's going to be a dog, some chips and Strasburg at the picnic tomorrow.

It wasn't that big a crowd, although a lot of us were up by the concourse in the shade. From the clips I saw it didn't look as if the cam ever panned up there.

During the TH, Stan said we wouldn't be displeased with the ticket price changes for next season. (No specifics given. We'll see.)

Hey, I was looking forward to hanging out at the Ugly Mug with you between events yesterday. All good though....we still had a good time. We'll catch a game in Sept.
