My first playoff game was last night… game 3 of the ALDS in Oakland, A’s vs Tigers. Thanks to Bud Selig and his infinite “wisdom” (and by wisdom, I mean general idiocy), having the “home field” advantage meant that the A’s started the series with two games on the road, which they lost. They came back to Oakland last night to take on Detroit on their terms. Incidentally, this is the first time I’ve seen the Tigers in Oakland and actively rooted against them. Sorry, Justin Verlander. I still like you and all, but I want to be able to keep going to as many baseball games as possible.
The A’s came through for me and I’m going to another game tonight… which means I’ll wait to write about the series. Just like I’ll wait to write about those four baseball games I went to and never blogged. But in the meantime, here are pictures from last night. I’m off to the Coliseum where baseball will be played at least one more day!
