[...]Getting back on topic I think I will head out a bit early and head to the loft today.

...speaking of which...Pilsner Urquell was back at the Scoreboard Walk yesterday (albeit at $8/can rather than the happy hour price - but in this case it's taste that counts).

Harris Teeter used to carry the Pilsner cans and I wish they still did, best beer to take to the park.  Last few games I've been taking in these:

I remember those Pilsner cans at H-T - as I recall it they weren't too pricey either. (H-T still has Beck's cans for $4.99 - it's brewed in the USA now but still tastes reasonably faithful to the original; that market also sometimes has specials on 10-packs of Stella cans for just $12.99.)

Stella cans are another good one for the ballpark.  Last week I took in some 16 oz. Sierra Nevada Torpedo cans.

Early peek at weather.com currently shows 60% chance of rain for all three fixtures of next week's Phillies series.

It was meant to be, I guess...for some of their travelling support it'll be the first time many of them have showered in several weeks.

I don't usually attend Sunday day games (I burn too easily), but I will make an exception to get my hands on a Michael Morse bobblehead.

Lots of cheap seats for the Philliies series on StubHub.  Philly fans are dumping their seats! Hopefully the Nats fans will snap them up.

What's the pitching rotation for the Philthies? I've lost track since the ASB. I want to bury those jerks.

I'll be there.  Got 3 seats in section 103 (I believe) - might have one of the seats available if someone wants it.

I'm an easy guy to spot.  Just imagine Bluto if he was 6" taller.  You've got my number too, right?

Yes I do.

I'll look like that guy Dan Steinberg once wrote about.

I'll be there Tuesday in 116.

Really would like Gio to pitch a great game today and get the win  and come into the series and bury Philly.
