…candid photography, snap-snap, click-click, know what I mean, nudge-nudge, say no more. 😉
I got back from Florida last night. Two days of driving each way…but probably the smarter choice, given all those people sleeping in airports while the planes are inspected for cracks. (And yes, if I’d flown, it would have been Delta.)
I went to six baseball games in six days, and took a ton of photos at all of them. Weirdly, one of the ushers at a Reds game told me that cameras were not allowed in the stadium. WTF? Who ever heard of a rule like that? Practically everyone there had a camera and was snapping photos left and right, but he singled me out and told me to put the camera away. Jeez. I thought they were Nazis at Yankee Stadium, but they allow cameras there. (I simply moved to another section and continued taking photos.)
Yup, I’m afraid it’s the moment you’ve all been dreading: I’m inflicting my vacation photos on you.
I think Jeff Keppinger’s going to be a fan favorite.
And he’s pretty cute from the front, too.
Former Red Buck Coats greets Scott Hatteberg at first base.
Drew Stubbs played in several games. He kinda reminded me of Rick Moranis in Spaceballs.
Jeff Bannon, who became a minor league free agent after seven years in the Reds system, is now with the Rays.
I’m tempted to post something rude and juvenile about this photo, but Andy’s such a church-going choir boy that I can’t quite bring myself to do it.
Andy takes time off from signing autographs for the national anthem. Love the “hat hair.”
Before the Phillies game, outfielder Geoff Jenkins came over to say hi to Brandon Phillips. BP threw his arms around him.
This photo of Brandon Phillips almost makes me want to vote for him instead of Bubba. Almost. 😉
Did someone order an eyechart? Oops, it’s just Doug Mientkiewicz’s jersey. He’s the newest Pirate; they just announced that he made the team.
I saw RHM’s favorite, “Little Rey Rey,” play in two games (one against the Reds, one against the Yankees).
Joey Votto hasn’t played all that well in spring training, but he made the team – as the starting first baseman.
Also, the Enquirer has something they call a spring training flipbook. It’s a Flash animation made out of 2,700 photos. You might want to download it to your computer by right-clicking here. Play it using Internet Explorer. It runs a lot better that way.
