Mariners Drop One to the Boys from Colorado Town, But a Good Time Still Was Had by All



Get Mariner-ized!

Some teams have it so much worse than our faves, the M's! Although our beloved Mariners lost a heart breaker last night to the Colorado Rockies or something, we still love them. Ichiro is so cool, and Adrian Beltre is pretty neat too. And Jr.? Well, he's in a league of his own. Last night was a demoralizing loss that dropped the Seamen to a game under .500, but hey let's not dwell on the bad things. We're Mariner fans, and we live to be surprised by the Sailors, soothed by the Circumnavigators, wowed by the Windjammers, and saved by the Sailors. So instead of any sad talk, I'd like to share my pictures of the M's magnificent win against the Orioles last week, which I attended in person.



A lovely view of the Seattle skyline.



Everyone knows Endy is the heart and soul of the Seamen!


Got a question at the park? Ask this nice gentleman.


Mmm, I can't think of a tastier sounding treat.


There are plenty of places in the park to hide and cry, if that's your thing.


Hey dad, that Moose has shorts on!


I think he's looking at me.


The Ichiro dance.


Pretty sunset, viewed from the park.


The Orioles weren't kidding around, not with Ty Wiggington manning first base.



If there's something better than a M's win, I haven't heard of it!


After the game, the ushers allowed me a leisurely stroll around the Mariners Hall of Fame.


Look who's hanging in the Hall!


The Hall is very informative. I wonder if the umpires ever toured it? Har!



Gloves are cool. But remember to use two hands!



An apt tribute to Dave Niehaus.


Did you know?


This way to the exits!

    maybe you can kidnap Jack Zduriencik while you're over there and demand Omar Minaya and Oliver Perez in exchange.
