So, Thursday was to be either a rest day or a cross-training day. After the track workout on Wednesday, I figured I should either bike or relax.
One of my friends here at work asked if I was going to the baseball game. It was about that point where the scale began tipping towards a rest day.
Turns out that Billy Wagner, the injured Mets closer was doing a rehab start. OK.. I'm game.
We went down to the game early and grabbed a bite to eat. Unfortunately, there were no Cooperstown beers to be had. That was sad. No beer report for you today. :(
The stadium announcer indicated that Billy would not be starting the game as previously thought. (boo!) Instead, he would come in as a reliever and pitch for either an inning or 20 pitches, whichever came first (yeah!).
So, Billy came in for relief and threw a perfect inning. Here's a pic:
He looked good.. It was fun, and good to see a major league guy.
It was also fireworks night. Here's a picture
That's all for now!
