I watched this game with a friend, but in order to deal with my allergies I popped a pill and downed a 32 ouncer mere moments before the game started.
This is totally off subject, but what is with those fucking guys on the subway who listen to their radios without headphones!?
7:07 “friend” complains about Jarrod Parker
7:08 first pitch
7:15 Fosse complains about home plate umpire Jim Reynolds (who tossed Curt Young the night before) in the subtle way only HE can.
7:18 Weiters strikes out to end the inning
7:24 “friend” calls the strike zone bullshit and says Josh Reddick’s facial hair looks “dumb” moments before he K’s.
7:34 another bullshit call by the umpires erasing a nice double play started by Josh Donaldson. E-5.
7:52 Casper Wells K’s in his first AB as an Athletic.
At this point in time the pill I had taken earlier intermingled with the beer causing me to fall into a deep sleep. I awaken to find the A’s down 1-0 and watch until the 9th when Ryan Cook gives up 2 runs… erasing our chances for a victory. Back to sleep.
