Our Lucky Day!

Despite all the SHAT that has been going on with the illness, side effects, and my downer posts lately, we did have a fantabulous day Saturday.

My friend Merrie (Sleepless Mornings)gave us free tix to an Oakland A's game and we were thrilled.

My hubby has been a fan since his youth, and frankly My Boy can't pass up a stadium hot dog for anything!

So we get their early and luck out-we get to watch batting practice which is always cool!

Soon after finding our amazing seats, an A's Ambassador comes over and asks if the kids want to go ON the field and watch BP!!

UM, YEAH!

The kids are on the field taking in the view from just behind home plate, very cool!

Soon after, another A's rep comes over and hands My Boy a BP ball!

Our seats were so close to the A's dugout, My Boy and I hung out and tried to get some autographs.

Luckily Eric Patterson was hanging out, so we grabbed our new ball and tossed it over the dugout for some signage!



And of course, I snapped some pics of my personal favorite player...Bobby Crosby.


First inning we see 4 runs score for the A's plus a homer from Mark Ellis, woot!


If that wasn't enough...another pair of A's reps came over to us and asked if we'd like to participate in the Chevron DiamondVision game in the 6th inning. 3 fans get a chance to win a $100 gift card for gas! We couldn't pass this up, so Hubby reluctantly agreed, since I had to take photos.

Hubby gets whisked away to the other side of the stadium and dons a Chevron car tee!


Then the computer-game is played on DiamondVision...and Hubby is then shown with his opponents!

Unfortunately, the car he represented, Muddy Maddie, did not win, but for his good sportsmanship he wins a $10 gas card!



It was an amazing day, and the A's beat the Indians 8-4, which means that every fan got a free 2-liter of Pepsi from their sponsors...I also found 2 A's merchandise cards in my wallet for $33 that i've had for over a year so the kids got a A's pullover.

I'm thinking with that luck, I should have purchased a lotto ticket!

Thanks again Merrie!

    Yes, apparently you SHOULD have bought a lotto ticket -- LOL! Wow, you guys had the perfect day, didn't you? I'm so happy it was fun and that you were able to go. I promise I'll think of you again when tix are available! :)

    Sounds like a wonderfully fun and lucky day. We got to a Phillies game in July, and I wanted to get back, but here it is almost playoff time (and they will be in the playoffs) and we have not been back!
