Game day - an extra!

My friend, Frank, sent me a text yesterday asking if I was interested in the Mariner game today. Frank is the dealer who got me hooked on Diamond Club. I'd always known about it and had actually tried to get my friend, Ann, to get tickets with me and go but she was having none of it. She loved baseball but $20 for a ticket, to her was madness enough. $200+ was not even up for discussion.

Then one day last Spring, Frank said 'would you ever have any interest in getting Diamond Club tickets one time for a game?' YES! He got on Stub Hub and worked the system. I cannot remember how much we paid. I wanna say $160 each. Doesn't matter, 10 minutes after having my ticket scanned that first time, I was hooked.

He's been talking about doing it again and yesterday, he picked today. At first I was not that into the idea. I was still reeling from Friday's 8 hours worth of fun. But, Sundays are the best for Diamond Club food. They lay out a fab brunch. Then I checked the weather. Overcast. Yeah, last time they lied but, hey, maybe they've gotten religion since then.

Now, today, I'm totally up for it. It is rather overcast and cool and I hope it stays that way. I've been watching Stub Hub and last night I was kind of worried when Frank hadn't pulled the trigger. But today, the prices are down fairly significantly from yesterday so ... he's clearly on the right track. It will be fun to sit in different seats for a change.

Oh, I just got a text from him. He's watching the ticket prices and 'they haven't hit my number yet.' Ha. I would never have the patience. But I can roll either way. The Diamond Club opens in less than an hour. 'I feel good about it! But no guarantees.'

Stay tuned!

EDIT: alas, the game is a no go. the sweet price/availability never got together. so. baseball on TV, it is but first. Breakfast. Or rather, I guess, brunch!
