Axion's Night at 1984... Night

What up Cub-busters? Did you go to the game last night? Ya didn't? What's the matter with you? These San Diego Padres, you might have heard of them, had won 7 in a row before this game. If that's not enough; FREE T-SHIRT!

It's got the names of all the dudes from the 1984 team on it. To be honest, I don't remember any of that because I was busy turning one year old that October and was more concerned with the discovery of cake and ice cream. Let me tell you, it changed my life.

jbox asked somebody to take pictures and I volunteered. I really wanted to be at this game, and one by one, plans fells through, and it ended with me going alone. So I StubHub'd a ticket in the Omni Premier section D and packed my monocle and iPhone. This the part where I make excuses about the quality of the photos.

Ted read a thing before they showed a video. He's a great MC. If only he could drop phat beats and spit hot fire. via img132.imageshack.us

They had a police escort, which I thought was strange, traffic on the field seemed pretty light. via img40.imageshack.us

Once the game was under way, I tried to see who I could see in the press box. You can always spot Coach Kentera from anywhere in the park. Somewhere, Corey and Jenny were probably up there, too. via img43.imageshack.us

Around the 4th inning, I headed out to the Tony statue and sent out a tweet. via img37.imageshack.us

I noticed them pulling the curtains back on the backdrop of Planet Swanky. via img32.imageshack.us

When nobody showed and it started to feel as lonely as UncommonSportsman.com, I went back to my seat in the middle of the 6th.

Moments after this photo, this Pad-Squadder slowed out of hyperspace to practice a high-five with the usher. via img40.imageshack.us

He was trying to teach her the one where you high-five up top, and then as you continue to walk by, you do a backhand down low. It took a few tries, but eventually they got it. via img39.imageshack.us
