Isn't Life Grand, Brett Brett?

I just got in from the Yankees game and need to scramble to pretty up and make it back out for what will surely be a night for the ages. But first, let's talk about the game, shall we? Or specifically, the bottom of the third.

I was in Bleachers Section 203, among some awesome, vocal and hilariously entertaining Yankees fans. Their excitement was electric when the Yankees lit up the Jays' Romero in the third and helped secure Andy's tenth win of the season. As I Tweeted early, this game is the highlight of my summer so far - even if summer is only twelve days old.

Brett Gardner hit his first career grandslam, driving in four of the eleven runs. See it unfold through the magic of my camera's amazing zoom:

Post-GS respect

A huge thanks to Dave for bringing me to the game and letting me experience an afternoon with the Saturday Creatures. Props also to Pete and Stephen, Dave's Bleacher Buds, for the ride home and the fun time. I can't wait to go back and experience Section 203 for an upcoming evening game.

I will have more about the game later this long weekend. In the meantime, enjoy your 4th and try not to blow off any appendages with the bottle rockets that Homer Simpson influenced you to buy:
