Here's a quirky thing I started doing at the ballgames I go to...

My son and I always compete to see how many triple peanuts we can get out of a bag at the games we go to.  There was a game I went to without him so I took a photo of my triple to send him in the name of good-natured taunting.  Here is a collection of my triples since that time - hope you enjoy! Triples GallerySee More

Cold and blustery night.  Ridiculous weather delays.  Got little sleep.  Totally worth it.

As I sat down to do this, I thought (1) this would be easier and (2) I would have much more objective reasons for slotting each ballpark.
