I nearly saw history last night… Felix Hernandez one-hit the Twins en route to a 7-0 victory. Really, as far as the game goes, it was horrific for a Twins fan (me and my mother) and exciting for a King Felix fan (Amittai). But we did have awesome seats, right behind the Twins dugout, purchased after a mini-adventure negotiating with scalpers. As my mom put it, it really felt like we were watching a different game than last night.
Amittai also got me to do a thing I never do, which is leave my seat during the game. We went and walked around the upper deck to see the views of the Seattle skyline — it wasn’t clear enough to see Rainier, but the sunset just past the Space Needle was nice.
And for those who might be curious, Amittai and my mother got along just fine.
