A sausage Fest At The Old Ball Game

I convinced Alan, Steve, Tim and Jim to go to a Tucson padres game at Kino stadium. Its a fine outdoor experience that I have enjoyed in the past. After a fine 4th bbq at Steve R.'s I was 4 continuing the comaraderie. I had bought at a mile long yard sale in Fillmore, Nevada the week before a spectacular red plastic vintage all-in-one picnic table with chairs. Tim Fuller fixed the minor joint problems and the four grandchildren had a party poolside while the parents ate at an adult table nearby. I thought to bring the Hawaiin Elvis velvet painting I found in McGill, Nevada and a doctor Suess bk I found in Tucson.

TGim thought it might be fun to wear the table as a hat since his t-shirt and table matched. 

Then he tried it as a matching cape like the black cape Igor Stravinsky wore back behind the stage at Carnegie Hall years and years ago.

Then he tried it as a "floaty" but that didn't work until he put it upright and sat down

And these two grandchildren weren't even his.

Steve did the cooking as Emperor and chief

The next nite we arrived at Kino Stadium

Steve took lessons from Tim on the where withal of baseball. Jim got reports on the Giants game and Tim and Allen enjoyed the Boston game. I ate peanuts. 

From the back the four looked `normal'

but from the front it was painfully obvious

I can't get Steve to NOT pose

Jim, the vegetarian, ate a dish that i wouldn't feed to a dead dog!

A tight, well- fought game between the Mets triple A (Las Vegas) and the Tucson Padres. Padres were losing going into the 9th inning then

Daniel Robertson started off the ninth inning rally with a walk and later advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Jaff Decker. Gregorio Petit's single to left moved Robertson to third, while Petit took second base on an error by Brian Bixler. Two batters later, Wilson stepped to the plate with two outs and two strikes and sent a single to right bringing home Robertson and Petit to win the game.
