Minnesota Twins Vs. Boston Red Sox


Minnesota Twins Vs. Boston Red Sox
Todd Swank's Diary Entry


So our sons went camping with the Boy Scouts this weekend which left us at home by ourselves.  Since we couldn't figure out anything fun to do together at home, we decided to go to a baseball game!


We went with Miss Sheri's college buddy, Cathy Klimek, and her friend, Jeff.  They're Twins season ticket holders and also appear to shop at the same jacket store.


Cathy had told us that as season ticket holders, they could invite us to eat at Target Field's Metropolitan Club.  It was awesome!  A great buffet that we could eat while watched the game.  What a great experience!!  Until we received the bill.  I had no idea I was going to need to take out a second mortgage on my house in order to go out on Friday night, but I guess it was worth it.


The reason we decided to attend this particular game was because my co-worker, Tim Poor, said he would be there with his family.  He's a great guy.  I thought it would be a good idea to go over and say Hi and introduce my wife to him and his family.  Until I discovered that he was seated on the exact opposite side of the stadium from us.  I was literally exhausted by the time we arrived.  I gotta get in shape.


The Poor Family was there because two of their daughters were invited to sing the National Anthem before the game began.  We had no idea which ones were theirs when we took this picture, but they looked great any ways.


The game was very exciting and went into extra innings.  Unfortunately, the Twins lost in the end, but it was darn close.  Perhaps if Justin Morneau would have done something when he was up to bat in the 5th inning with the bases loaded.  But this is what happened instead:



On Saturday night, we took Grandma Linda out for dinner to celebrate a delayed Mother's Day.  I gave her a picture of her with her grandkids which seemed to make her happy.  Either that or she just sat on a live animal.

When I was in Seattle last week, a friend showed me an app called Photo Funia which does really cool things to photos.  Here's a few examples I made:
