An introduction to Baseball

The boy's first Twins game.

Tory and I packed up the Baby Bjorn, some milk and a few diapers – and caught the train downtown to see his first Twins game today. It was also his first ride on the light rail, and his first time at the Metrodome, so there were many new things to look at and drool on. He has taken to grabbing anything within reach, so keeping his hands out of other peoples hair on a packed train was surely entertaining. He’s lucky Minnesotans are so tolerant of infants. Or maybe I’m lucky.

A few friends were there as well… Bridget and Tim, along with her mom and sister (and family), and Heather and Dolf. Bridget got us our ticket that put us down the third base line, lower deck. A nice upgrade from the usual nose bleeder cheap seats.

Tory didn’t pay much attention to the game, but I’m not ready to say he doesn’t like baseball. He’s only interested in things that are within a three foot radius of himself, so lets hope next time we catch a foul ball and he can chew on some real MLB leather. Tim did try and show him how to grip for a Changeup… but with the right hand. We want a lefty Tim, a lefty.

    Metroplexual, I read some of that article and baiscally stopped when their assumption turned out to be just incorrect and their conclusion was that this home calculated to be a good buy! Am i missing something here? .Not at all. The reporter is our favorite antibubble blogger at the walkthrough (ablog at the NYT). His favorit activity use to be cruising bubble blogs and lifting them for ideas. He then graduated to just writing what they said and saying that there is no bubble. I just thought I would throw out the article so that folks could think for themselves. BTW I came to the same conclusion. The two profs are total eggheads. I don’t follow their reasoning either. Maybe someone with an econ background can explain what it is thy are implying. Opportunity costs? I don’t get it (usually I can.) 10:29 PM
