    Okay, so we got an email really early this morning that we had been selected from I guess something like a pool, to purchase tickets to the nlds and nlcs (is that right?) as well as the world series. 

    Now this is all pending on whether or not the Arizona Diamond Backs don't choke!! 

    The tickets for the nlds went on sale at 10 o'clock and my husband jumped on it.  We got club level seats, which I like at Chase Ball Park and made reservations for a hotel so that we can see both games and not have to drive back and forth.

    GO D-BACKS!!  (we like the phillies too)

    I thought I read home of the Braves. whoo!

    You might get to use those tickets :>D

    After years my seats are worth paying for. We should also be there.

    I added your Derrick Hall to my prayer list today. He's to young!

    Personally I hope the Phillies win again.

    I was trying to convince hubby that if they get in, let's go!!

    Stub hub always had tickets for sale

    But we've already got another road trip planned and the deal is sealed, can't back out now.  I told him to wait until after the world series, but NOOOOO

    Last year we went to Las Vegas and sat in the betting parlor in the MGM and watched on the BIG screen TV's, wow, that was great, but crowded.  We won $50, my big time gambling husband...

    WOW!!  Did anyone watch any baseball games last night?  We bounced between games and it was so exciting.  Being in PCT zone is great, we can watch every game and still get to bed well before midnight.  We're all set for the NLDS in Phoenix on Tuesday.  We had made hotel reservations for both scenarios, I can't wait, this is going to be exciting.

    PLAY BALL !!

    I'm not much of a baseball fan, and I absolutely refuse to go to the new ballpark (long story), but it's exciting for us here in Wisconsin to see the baseball team do so well as the Packers did last year. Some of my friends are over the moon with excitement!

    One of the craziest 12 hours of baseball we've had in a long time. Technology is great, isn't it?

    Sorry, but you all need to learn how to say Texas Rangers.!!!!!!!

    i use to be the phillies spring training caterer for about 8 years when i lived in florida. not for the players, but for the owners, mgrs. and press...fun times, good ball club, great fans! certainly ate my share of hot dogs over the years, but then again, i adore a good hot dog....came up with a special condiment we called 'melish'...for lack of a better name...basically mustard, onions and good pickle relish.....think it's really a chow chow...gotta say, it's great on a dog....sooo, i'm still a phillie's fan.....play ball!

    joey

    Wahoo!! That was a close one there at the end for our Phillies!!

    Went to the Gym early this morning to get that out of the way so that we could make it home before the D-Backs got started, hubby says,

    "eh, this isn't our primary game today.." HA!!  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/tongue.gif

    So off I went to grocery shop...come home and we lost ...not a good way to start out guys!!

    Now it's Panini's team on ... (and, yeah, what's up with that experiment lab?)

    I'm glad that I have an easy supper planned

    Heh There Jo! What a cool job to have!!  I've been saving my calories for D-Back Dogs at Chase Field on Tuesday and Wenesday. 

    Mustard and onions (or just a good dill pickle relish.  My husband thinks that's not how to eat a hot dog!) and loads of it!!  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/licklips.gif   And a pretzel, and a bag of peanuts and a beer and some red vines and some kettle corn and .... no, not all of that, but I can dream right?

    Of course now-a-days I have to make sure that I have some Tums in my bag too!!

    Joey, Yes, I only cook with copper in the garage.

    Lab? Spot on, We're doing some brain experimenting during lunch.

    It was the only thing my idiot computer would let me pull up.

    I know you know BJIC, it's my sugar box in the bakery kitchen.

    Rangers? We don't have it this year. Nolan Ryan was sleeping in his box last night.

    This is what we do at the sugar box.

    This is where we make the money with boiled sugar. We have to pull it. Kind of like taffy.

    Yes we sell quite a few for wedding cakes depending on the wheather. That little one there we use

    as centerpeices for tables with some truffles or Friandise. It has a little pedestal. We usually price by the pedal.

    I think those are 20's. Total 60.00

    Did anyone get to watch the Rangers today? Some really good baseball. Pitch-out to catch upton OMG. I get

    a little pounding in the chest thinking I might see another world series game.

    That was a good game!!

    Spent most of the day getting ready to head up to Phoenix for our next series, we're going to spend two days up there

    Not sure if our guys will make it though...

    Rangers look like they may have a shot!

    Watched Yankees vs Tigers... BEAT NEW YORK!!  BEAT NEW YORK!!

    I have never liked the Yankees...

    The bad thing about go up to Phoenix and going to the game is that we can't catch the Phillies game...

    there is a MLB app for $4.99, we can watch on WiFi while in Chase Field now, but just not the same Dude!!

    Wow, Beautiful sugar work!  And I love that striped cake on your page of pics.

    No opinion on baseball.  I can opine on football and basketball, however.

    In October I do a lot of reading b/c of all the baseball on the tube.  :)
