D... & Goliath

Sunday we had the good fortune to see the Astros play the Red Sox at Minute Maid Park. It was the 1st time ever for Boston to play in Houston. I was surpised at how the fans acted. I really thought we might be at Fenway rather than Minute Maid the way the fans cheered and booed. A much difference experience than when we saw the Astros play the Yankees a couple of weeks earlier.

But, that's not the point of this. This is all about the giant of a man who sat next to me. He had to squeeze in the seat and he spilled over into my space. His clap was like a sonic boom that made my ears ring. And his hands blocked my view of home plate. His voice was louder than all the Red Sox fans put together. Can you tell how large he is?

How about now compared to my knees and Big D's knees. Keep in mind that we call him Big D for a reason. He is over 6 feet tall.
Is this better? The guys in front of us left so we each hooked our legs over the back of the seats.
I'm telling ya'll, he was massive. And he had no idea I was taking pictures of us together.

That is funny! I wish I could have taken a picture of the loud girl behind me who obviously didn't have children of her own. I'd caption her "Girl Who Says the F Word" and feel happy about it. Anyway . . . we were in section 434, very close to your section. On Thursdays, it's an all you can eat section, and that was the big draw for our son who doesn't like sports.
