Today we went to a Braves game. This was the first time in the last 4 1/2 years since we've been in Atlanta that I actually felt like a Braves fan. Before this, I would usually cheer for the other team if they were in close vicinity to Pittsburgh, my hometown! Today was different. I even had a favorite player, Marcus Giles!
Even though Milwaukee beat us today 8-4, it was an exciting game. Marcus Giles got my attention with his hits, while Jeff Francoeur hit his second home run in four games. But, my favorite was the catch made by Milwaukee's Carlos Lee when he crashed into the wall in the 8th inning.
Surprisingly, the rain held off till we started walking out of the stadium. With hurricane Dennis in our midst, we were lucky!
Now, what's going to happen the end of this month when we go to the Atlanta vs Pittsburgh game? (Pirates all the way! Don't tell anyone! lol)
