I got off to a late start because I wasn't sure if they'd call the game or not, I got stuck in traffic and missed the first two innings, I spent over a half hour looking for parking, the rain hit the moment I entered the stadium and didn't stop for almost 2 hours, I got utterly drenched and was soaking wet all night (still am actually), the cast of Squidbillies was sitting three rows behind me and were drinking plenty of party liquer, the bullpen was typically shitty, the Nationals tied the game twice on bizarre plays and sent it into overtime, I froze my ass off soaking wet while the wind blew all night, the game didn't finally end until 1:30am, I couldn't get onto I-85 when I left because the signs led me to a carpool only entrance, I got lost looking for another way onto the interstate and ended up in Buckhead somehow, and I got home at 3am.
BUT - I got to see Jordan Schafer get a leadoff hit in the tenth and watch Kelly Johnson bring him home to win the game. The same night the Mets and Phillies lost. Awwww yeah. In honor of these two fine gentlemen who let all of us fans who stuck it out finally get home, here are their at-bat music selections for '09:
These two are not only great ballplayers, they have impeccable taste in music!
