I get email updates from the Seattle Times every morning. Today, they posted their “Swing Away, Fans” entries, poetry, haikus, and otherwise where people were allowed to express their frustrations at this season. If you can stand to read the entirety of it, you’re a stronger person than I. What I did read has not set a positive tone for an already-sleepless Friday, so I figured I’d post some photos here instead. Some people might argue that fans like me are part of the problem, because I go to games regardless of the status of the team. I just like baseball, folks – yes, it’s been disappointing baseball in the extreme this year, and I’m sure I could fill pages with complaint after complaint, but I don’t plan to do that. It takes more energy for me to be angry at the team than it does for me to enjoy a day at the ballpark. And recently, I did just such a thing, on Felix Day against the Oakland A’s…
Usually, my goal is to take photos of the team without their awareness of my presence, which is normally fairly easy because there are so many other people taking pictures too. Also, now that my hair is not as bright as it used to be, that’s a little easier. I didn’t notice this one until I uploaded it at home. Oops.
I’d post more – I took over 100 photos that night – but they will have to be saved for later, as the time is coming for me to go spend another tiring day at school.
Have a great Friday, everyone!
