The last day of the regular season

I slept in a little this morning, finally getting up just before 9 AM. It was another beautiful day today, even nicer than yesterday. Kelly came back over at 11 AM and we immediately headed up to Baltimore for the last Oriole’s game of the regular season, which turned out to be against the New York Yankees.

I parked at the Sheraton Inner Harbor because we were planning on going to the Inner Harbor after the game. The stadium was packed. I’m not sure if it was because the Yankees were in town, or because it was the last game of the season, or the weather. But it was a lot of fun, with the Yankees winning 10-4. Jorge Posada managed the final game of the season, and at one point, he even came out to the mound to bring in a relief pitcher. I managed to get in my last baseball hot dog of the season, as well as some cotton candy, a Sprite, and a beer. It’s hard to believe the regular season went by so quickly.

Kristy and her friend were at the game, sitting in the bleachers, and they came by to say hello. They’d been to all three games in the series. The Yanks finished the season with a 94-68 record. And, of course, a spot in the playoffs.

After the game, we walked to the Inner Harbor and had a 3 hour dinner at McCormick & Schmick’s. It wasn’t three hours by choice, necessarily. They were so busy that the service was pretty slow. But it was still a good dinner, and a great day. And now that the regular baseball season is over, it really does feel like fall.
