Hanging with the Bourgeois at PNC

DB~ and I were quite lucky to have the opportunity to enjoy a Pirate game in a suite at PNC Park tonight. This is practically a "live blog" tonight! Along for the ride is loyal non-reader (do you still post at Dale Berra's Stash?) Stevie Numbers. Numbers took time out from spending every waking hour pursuing rumors on the future of Duquesne basketball to join us tonight. The three of us were able to get on the field during Pirate batting practice, which was super cool to see the action from that perspective. Now here we sit in Suite 7 on a perfect night of weather at the ballpark. Yes, the Pens are playing, so I will have one eye on the TV as well. Morton did some Morton-like stuff in the first inning so far. He got a strikeout on a 77 mph offspeed pitch and then induced a ground ball that Barmes turned for an unassisted double play. Holy cow! Alex Presley just hit an inside-the-park home run! The Cards CF might be dead after crashing into the wall. We'll monitor that situation closely. Presley put it off the wall right by the Pirates topiary in dead center, CF crashed into the wall, then Presley turned on the afterburners. Can't remember if I ever saw one live or not. We ordered some food for the suite as well. We got a Grilled Chicken Sandwich Platter, a Skirt Steak Sandwich platter, and a Snack Attack Basket appetizer platter. Check out this culinary goodness:
The grilled sandwich is the Grilled Chicken, Tomato, Mayo, and Mozzarella. DB~ had that one and said it was pretty good. The other sandwich is the Skirt Steak on Foccacia bread with a lettuce, tomato, and mayo mix. The appetizer basket is a standard mix of popcorn, pretzels, peanuts, and trail mix but's free.
