9.22.06 San Diego v. Pittsburgh Pirates: spoilt
San Diego WINS! 6-2
This was it. This was my big chance to be present during a no-hitter. Most of the time, it's some random pitcher who chucks one. People like Hideo Nomo and Anibal Sanchez, right? (I know, N. Ryan, shut up.) So Mr. Highpockets Chris Young is going for it. Yeah.
But I ruined it because I turned to the woman next to me after the 6th and said, "Hey, know what I just noticed?" Yup. I don't know what the fuck I was thinking.
I'll tell you what, though, the park was off the chain at that point. It was one of the best games I've ever been to. And then Joe "Randy" (according to the inaccurate scoreboard) very rudely hit a two-run homer with one out in the 9th. Deflation. Exeunt all hopes.
I read in the paper the next day that Randa walked into a downtown restaurant and who did he see but Chris Young. Ha.
PS The food at Petco is furiously expensive. ONE hot dog, ONE order of fries, and ONE beer? $19.75. Yes.
