Clue-by-Four: Ramblings of a Jock Dork

The Dog Days of Summer (Baseball Week at ClueXFour): Shenanigans All-Star Break

Posted in Jock Dork: It's Who I Am by Wingnut on July 19, 2010

I still think Mickey looks better in Yankees pinstripes

The second-half of the baseball season is upon us and, for the next few posts, there will be a baseball reltated theme, including:

All-Star Weekend Proves to Be Just Another Cheeseburger

Things I Could/May Have Learned fron George Steinbrenner

and a few other things.

Not to mention @turnjacsons post: http://turnjacson.wordpress.com/2010/07/13/swinging-for-the-fences%e2%80%a6/ . He really brings the chedder in this post [A devastating fastball for the lingo deficient among you).

In the meantime, inspired by the many posts of http://www.missdisgrace.com/ , I have decided to include some photo highlights of All-Star Shenanigans with the girls.

Waiting for a ball during batting practice.

Player's kids get to be on the field during BP. How cool is that for a kid? Pictured: Pettite family

The most awesomest mountain of brand new gloves I have ever seen. Damn VIPs!

What this game is all about.

That's a serious beauty! The Corvette is nice too

Our view for the HR derby. David Ortiz his about 5 into the old bullpen right in front of us.

Maria Menounos from Access Hollywood....man she looked good in baseball pants

Jennie Finch goes big fly! She is easily the hottest women to ever play softball (in part because she is so talented!)

 

Goofy girl!

    What an awesome time for you and the girls! I’m jealous that you snapped that pic of Tim Salmon. I got his autograph a loooong time ago and I nearly fainted with joy.

    Not sure I approve of your team affiliations, but it looks like it was an awesome day.

    So many great pics. Thanks for sharing. I especially liked the one you captioned, “What this game is all about.” It looks like you all had a great time. Way to be a dad. 🙂
