This is a picture of some tickets for a baseball game. The game was a Mariners game. Specifically, it was yesterday's Mariners game, the one where Felix Hernandez threw a perfect game.
You might notice that those tickets are unused, that's because they were not used at the time of the picture and remain unused as you read this. You might notice that those tickets are lying on a wooden surface. That wooden surface is a coffee table. I know that is a coffee table because it is my coffee table and (hold for the big reveal)... those are my unused tickets to Felix Hernandez's perfect game.
How could someone such as myself, a man who eats, breathes and sleeps baseball? All it took is five simple steps.
1. Have an unreliable friend
The reason I even had those tickets in the first place is because one of my oldest friends was coming to visit me in Seattle. I am a die hard Angels fan, he is a devoted Red Sox fan. Neither of us cares about the Mariners or the Rays, but hey, baseball is awesome and he had never been to Safeco before. So purchase the tickets I did, way back in March. Neither of us could have possibly known what would have been in store for us had we attended the game, which we did not. The main reason he did not was because my friend is unreliable. He was supposed to come to town Tuesday night, but he got pulled into some work thing and couldn't finish it in time to make his flight. Me though, I soldiered on.no comments
