This weekend, I took Artie to his first ever Detroit Tiger game. I'm not sure he really got in to the whole game like he did the Piston's game last fall but, he did have a good time and of course, took lots of pictures. The tickets were provided free of charge from Variety, the Children's Charity through my volunteer work at Care House of Pontiac. All the kids in our group got free t-shirts and a souvenir of his or her choice. Artie, not surprisingly, went for the mini-bat.
The Tigers were playing the St. Louis Cardinals in the 3rd game of a Interleague series. They beat St. Louis 4-1 rounding out a sweep of the weekend series. The Tigers are amazingly playing well over .500 ball in fact they are the best team in baseball right now. After years of disappointments, its almost like a dream. Could it be we'll have baseball in October in Detroit this year?
The rest of my weekend with Artie primarly consisted of hanging out at the pool. Artie made friend with 2 "big kids" in my complex who were happy to trade cannonballs and shark attacks with him for hours on Saturday. I still think Artie believes those guy are kids instead of grown men in their late 20s.
All the pictures, good bad and ugly, are on my Flickr site and if you click on that picture of Artie up top, you'll go right to 'em. I was really pleased that the only shot of my cannonball is the splash.
