The Yankees Won 6-4 Even Though They Didn't Score After The Second Inning

Todd Strasser and I went to our annual New York Yankee game on Wednesday. C.C. Sabathia pitched a complete game for the victory.

Our seats were close to the right field foul pole. I was very pleased when Ichiro Suzuki was put in right for defensive purposes.
Ichiro is bigger than this in real life
 
 
I asked Todd if I could take his picture, and he agreed, but didn't bother getting up.

When he asked to take my picture, I had no choice but to agree. You can't tell, but I'm wearing my Hudson Valley Renegades cap.
 
One of the best things about going to a baseball game is that, unlike figure skating or tennis, you can talk all the way through the game. We talked about Todd's newest book, Fallout.
I have a rule never to read books written by people I know, but I'm going to break that rule for Fallout, when it comes out on September 10.
 
Fallout should satisfy my reading needs that day!

I went to a Royals game also on the 7th. We won 4/2. Great minds think alike maybe??

Ooh I LOVE the cover of Todd's upcoming book. Adding it to my to-read. :) Looks like you had fun at the game!

Good Sunday morning jessiemc82 and Sarah-

A friend of mine used to live in Kansas City and she loved going to the ballpark there. She said it was beautiful.

And speaking of beautiful, the cover for Fallout is that and then some. Great cover, and I'm confident, great book!

Wow! He wrote The Wave. We used to read that with our 8th graders. Very cool book. I look forward to his newest.

Hello Anonymous-

I forgot to say Fallout is a Junior Library Guild selection, which is an excellent endorsement in and of itself!

You both look really darn cute. Obviously, baseball and each other's company are better than a month at a spa.

Good Saturday morning W.S.-

We do look pretty darn cute, and I'd probably get very bored spending a whole month at a spa, but a week or two sounds real nice!
