Last night’s ball game was gorgeous, especially when we ditched the sorta expensive seats we had and went all the way to the top. The guys were a lot smaller on the field, but it was much easier to watch the sun go down. The view was total. Even my crappy cell phone camera managed to catch the gorgeousness.


(Here’s a larger version.)

There was also this view:


These guys were drunk and standing up the whole game. (Bigger version here.) They had a lot more mojo than the other fans. A couple minutes after this photo was taken I saw two of them out by concessions buying beer. One of them had a big “B” painted on his torso in red, and the other had giant “O.” I couldn’t figure out how a “B” or an “O” would spell “SEATTLE” or “MARINERS” “MOJO” There are two “O”s in “MOJO,” but no “B”…

When it comes to matters athletic, I’m an idiot.

Later, the line of them turned around to face us, and they spelled out N-O-T-S-O-B. But body paint does not a baseball game win. Boston lost. Losers!

Thank you for the larger version.

Why have there been so many red sox fans at these games?
I've been to plenty of other m's-red sox games before and never seen so many red sox fans.

Probably fairweather fans, who follow any team that wins a championship. I can't fathom that there's all that many Bostonians flying all the way out here for Mariners games.

maybe NOTSOB was some sort of anti-Boston curse?

Now if only the Bo Sox had won, that game would be a thing of perfection (oh and if those guys were giving each other-and me-rubdowns). It seems that every time I go to a Sox-Mariners game, almost half the fans there are wearing Red Sox gear. I'll attribute to the 2004 Championship (coming back from 3-0, how can you not love 'em?) and transplants (such as me).
