Red Sox vs Astros


Tomorrow morning I get to join the other Lotto winners to buy tickets to the Red Sox vs Astros series. I just hope I can snag 4 good seats. Now I have to figure out the best strategy of whether to purchase 4 singles or 2 doubles...1 game or two games?? So many ways to do this. And then to make sure I do NOT get the nosebleed section. Woo HOOOO! At least I know I have the chance to have a ticket for each game. Wish me Luck.

Feeling better today?

Tex said...

first morning i actually got up and wasnt tired. but the day has wore me out. i just hope i can get 4 decent tickets. Ive sat in the nosebleed and it aint purty

Ted D said...

What kind of park is it, Tex? On tv it looks really nice, except for that stupid hill in CF. It's gonna take somebody blowing out a knee for them to take it away I guess.

Tex said...

im not really fond of the park myself. it has a half roof which slides open. when they close it...it echos way too loud in there. Plus the Visitors bullpen is hidden so NO ONE can see them!! :(

its pretty from the outside...the brick and steel...but i dont like the inside. But to get to the nosebleed seats...you seriously need to be a rockclimber...cos its THAT steep. I like getting their bullpen seats (near the astros bullpen) or down the 1st base line. either way...im getting 4 tickets. :)

Best of luck to ya, my friend! It's just a nice opportunity to get INTO the park with our boys, so just be happy for that!

Ted D said...

Tex, I hope you get some primo seats.

Tex said...

me too. but I really just want seats on the 1st level. i have a friend who is a captain in the houston pd...and she guarantees me tickets to at least one game with her. She'll pay primo money. anyway...ill get the 4 tickets and whatever game she has us for...ill sell mine at least for double or triple.

Tex, this has been driving me crazy; what is the name of that stupid hill in CF?

Tall's Hill?

Tal's Hill?

Or am I way off base?

Tal's hill. looks hard to play for sure. I had seats once in right field i was close enough to throw something at Rolens and hit him. the seats in the outfield are really close if you get the front rows.

Ted D said...

I knew I was close.

Rolen playing 3rd for the Jay's I don't mind. Glaus made me want to chuck batteries at him.

And I can't figure out why.

Tex said...

probably cos he is a good target...big target easy to hit :)

Will Tex be all nicey-nice to Ted?

Will Ted pay homage to Tex?

Will Tex play patty-cake with Ted?

Tune in tomorrow for another episode of "As My Stomach Turns".

Tex said...

Scottie if that is you, Ill be coming to Oklahoma for ya soon.

So call me stupid and slap me down.
i get on line right into the VWR quick. i buy 2 tickets for friday game...and instead of hitting the buy another game...i go straight pay for...so now I have 2 tickets for Friday game...none for sat and sun. :(
stubhub will become my friend soon.

Tex said...

wOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO! Well the Stros arent very good at this lottery thing. This morning i got right now but it was odd as they never asked for the Lottery password...so i entered it as the password for the email address...and it worked.

Then i couldnt buy more.

Then just now my friend forwarded a reminder ofthe tickets for sell. I got on and the buying process was diff. So i started it again. I bought me a ticket for Sat and Sun. So I have tickets for all 3 games now :)

Ted D said...

Way to go Tex. Sox/Astro's games don't come along often.

Natasha must have left Boris for the Moose.

Tex said...

someone is just jealous.

Ted D said...

Tex, you have to do a new post so I can yell "BORIS" as my first comment.

Then we can play patty cake.

And Boris can move out of his folks basement, grow a set and post his real name, and start a blog WE can leave snarky comments on. 'Cause it takes a big person to leave anonymous comments somewhere on the Internet.

We're friends in real life, Boris. IF that is your real name. It's a blog, douche. Don't read it if you don't like it. And please leave us your blog address so we can discuss this like grown ups.

Unless you're the real Boris, and if so, can I have your autograph?

Tex said...

i was thinking it was scott. or does he KNOW how to make himself Anonymous?
