Our 15 Seconds of Fame. Also, the Pirates blow.  
PNC Park sold out for Fan Euthanasia Night

Remy and I were at Friday night's Pirates game, along with my folks, my sister, and sister's boyfriend. Sometime around the 6th inning, Remy pulled up this article on his iPhone for me to read. I laughed, then we went back to counting the minutes- er, watching the game.

We later found out from people who'd watched the game at home that the FSN television cameras zoomed in on us at precisely that moment- seriously, right on me and Remy. The commentators complimented Remy's fedora ("That's a slick lid"), then went on to wonder about what we were looking at on the iPhone that was so amusing. If only they knew!

P.S. I do have to say, though, that Lastings Milledge is an awesome name. My money is on him and McCutchen getting traded before the end of the season.

P.P.S. Remy and I parked in downtown, and walked across the 7th Street Bridge to the North Shore, where PNC Park is located. Just before the bridge is a section of bars and restaurants, many of which have outdoor seating. Some people around our age were seated outside at a bar. As we walked past, one of the young men called out to Remy, "I like your hat!"

This was promptly followed by another young man calling out, "I like your girlfriend!"

That's hysterical!! Yes, that was my Remy in the white hat. I was the gal wearing glasses and a blue t-shirt, peeking over his shoulder at his iPhone. I hear my mom was also in the shot, on the other side of Remy.

LMAO!!! I just told Mum and Dad...Dad didn't remember it, but Mum is rolling. Too funny.

re: Fan Euthanasia night...lol I was there the last time the Pirates were actually a threat...back in '79. Since then, nadda.
