    Radiobarry's Friday Night Mini-Meet with pictures, (of course)

    This past Friday I had some last minute personal business to take care of in my old hometown of Garden Grove. Angels-Yankees that night at the Big A. No tickets, no passes. What to do, what to do...





    It was already the middle of the first inning three miles east, as I approached my desired viewing spot!



    Certainly a fun place to watch a game, with the Angels on the giant screen, several other games on the other screens, I finished half a plate of nachos...than decided to go for the meal that says...baseball. My favorite blue cheese, apple and walnut salad...washed down with..



    Well, first it was an O'Douls for a warmup...and then, wild man that I am...that full glass of Guinness you see above (Warning for those that don't wan't to see the big scary man...look away now)...



    By the fifth inning...the Angels are leading...and the Yankee fan sitting next to me at the bar says...I hate the Angels...certainly, music to my ears.

    Round about the fourth inning, with the Angels leading 4-2, just guess who showed up in the crowded bar behind me. Guess. Come On. Give Up?



    Alex, and the lovely and talented Morrigoon (Cindy) ... obviously ready for another evening's frolic at the DLR.

    Well, the game was dragging a bit...9:00 and only the 5th inning...and Morrigoon, baseball fan she is ( ) was hard to get out of there. And I told the Yankee guy next to me, as soon as I left...the Yanks would go to work. It was 4-4 before I got my parking validated.

    But toward the park we went, and lo and behold, guess who ran into in Frontierland, checking out fine leathers.
    Guess. C'mon. Give up?



    Who else, but Sadako - always a joy to see, and talk over fine leathers with.

    Actually, I jumped the gun a bit. Before we saw Julie, We wandered over to ...



    A streetlight outside the park. Noooo...it's just that most of my nighttime Pirates pics didn't come out, and I was going for an effect here. I was anxious...my first time on POTC since the rehab. I was discussing my excitement with my two MC friends, who apparently had other things on their mind than listening to my incessant babbling. (WARNING...another scary photo approaching...)



    But alas ye mateys, the line moved quickly and before I could say..."get a room"...we were inside Lafitte's Landing and heading for our boat.

    Brief review...I like it...They took care of attention to detail in the attraction that they'd been lacking...Don't like the new spiel as well before the first drop...First drop seems darker...otherwise the Davy Jones effect is cool as I'd read...but it would be better if you couldn't see it ahead of you. The use of Depp's Jack Sparrow was, for me, surprisingly clever and more understated than I was prepared for. Main complaint...the movie score just doesn't seem as right as the old song through the attraction.

    Now, back to our story. Me and my camera, shock, Sadako and her camera...bigger shock...



    That's Sam on the far left, BTW.

    So, after some time in the park, we wandered out...back into DTD...it was about midnight, and I headed home.

    That's it...no great groundbreaking stuff here...just a two hour drive home to the La Conchita estate, with a quick pass down the 57 to see that happily lit Halo on the Big A message board...Angels pulled it out in the ninth, 6-5.
    And I'm sure those Yankee fans in the Zone were cryin in their Guiness, or whatever...

    Looks like a nice evening to enjoy a baseball game. Thanks Barry.

    First off, the Angels have been slowly working their way up to being my favorite team.

    Secondly, thanks...I think people need to see it isn't always rides...people can have fun with the other attractions in the parks.

    Like ESPN Zone and, well, Guiness.

    Peace out and thanks for posting!

    Thanks, Barry! What a great report. Must have been a long drive home at that hour.

    You are not a big scary man. You all, every single one, look fantastic. Micechatters are beautiful!
