Pirates v Marlins: July 20th, 2012

Today would be an awful weather day, and I’ll be straight up. I got shutout. There would be no BP, and it would just straight up suck.

When I got to the park, I found Ian sitting at a table for Diamond Pizza to stay dry. I was glad I at least found someone, so I wouldn’t have to go through this alone. Harold would soon show up, then Zac soon after. Erik Jabs (a regular at PNC, one of the best ballhawks in the land) went to Cleveland, and did awesome, as we did not.

Once gates opened, we ran in to find a typical rain delay. No cage, tarp, and no players.

Ian, Zac, and I dediced to just goof around, and take some pictures.

The PNC staff were messing with the scoreboard, and got a derp picture of Tim Neverett and (my favorite) Bob Walk.

Soon after, we saw a pair of kids playing catch, which one was rumored to be Rod Barajas’ kid. Whatever.

Ian ended up getting a ball off of one of those kids, and it was a little bit of a conspiracy that Zac came up with. I’ve heard that you don’t count balls that aren’t staff of ballparks or MLB related people. I don’t know, I’ve saw people count kids. I’m counting baseballs I get. I’m never gonna get to the level Zack Hample is at, so I really don’t care.

Zac ended up getting a ball off a Marlin that threw it up to the 300 level, that was actually a commerative. So, I got left out in the cold. I ended up leaving, and driving Zac and his friend Colston to the Pittsburgh Power game across town.

I was pretty pissed off, not gonna lie, but it happens. Ballhawking is about having fun right? We did have a really fun day without BP.

Would my luck change at the next Marlins game? Stay tuned kiddos.
