At least they could have got the dude to pull his shirt down. Bleah.

They should all start smooching during the 7th Inning Stretch!

I say hire a straight couple to run interference by going for tongue and playing under-the-shirt.

@3: I think me and the Fleshy Man Toy cam be that couple!

Also as a sidebar, when I went a couple months ago with the FMT, we were smooching (with tongue even!) a lot. Like, pretty much doing the googly-eyed, kissy face thing and snuggling the whole time.

Not once were we asked to stop or leave.

can kiss roughly 4.1 times per inning.

Is this four and one-tenth, or four and a third?

Male muffin top alert! LOL

Hey, that looks close to the section where my seats are. But we only have Japanese tourists around us. They get drunk but never make out.

Dan. You and Terry should have mirrored this couple and then seen if you were asked to leave!

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | August 26, 2008 12:59 PM

Who cares? They'll be the only 800 people at the game.

Did the seating hosts have an objection to the plumber's crack that was surely being exposed by the male half of this couple?

Posted by DanFan | August 26, 2008 1:16 PM

I want to go to the game and make out with a baseball player!

Posted by monkey | August 26, 2008 1:17 PM

Balt-O-Matt... you know Terry. He's not the PDA type. Neither am I, for that matter.

Posted by Dan Savage | August 26, 2008 1:18 PM

Are they even called PDAs any more? What is this 1998 or something? I thought everyone had an iPhone or a BlackBerry.

@ 4: wtf is an fmt?

Posted by Mike in MO | August 26, 2008 1:21 PM

@14: The Fleshy Man Toy is wonderful. Totally.

@14: Fleshy Man Toy

Posted by Original Monique | August 26, 2008 1:24 PM
by my count they kissed each other 37 times.

Jesus, Dan, you really need a hobby or something.

Sounds to me like he's got one.

Everyone is NOT equal at Safeco field. Seattle is 49-82 and out of the running for years to come. Minnesota is 74-57 and 1 game back. Who cares who gets kissed when we're all getting screwed?

Posted by Gay is OK. Bad baseball is the pits. | August 26, 2008 1:35 PM

I've got several, Fnarf...

Posted by Dan Savage | August 26, 2008 1:41 PM

It's good to have a hobby.

Posted by Fnarf | August 26, 2008 1:53 PM

All the softball players and supporters should star making out during the 7th Inning Stretch.

Posted by elswinger | August 26, 2008 2:00 PM

In a perfect world, I could go to a Mariners game with you and make out, Dan...

Posted by SantiagoDave | August 26, 2008 2:18 PM

Okay, but as soon as I count 38 kisses from ANYONE - there's going to be some stern warnings issued.

Posted by YOUR Seattle Mariners Seating Attendant | August 26, 2008 2:31 PM

maybe it's just me, but if I were that couple and knew Dan was taking pictures of me, I would be a little creeped out.

Posted by DW | August 26, 2008 2:46 PM

You had to explain 'straight' to Terry? And he cried all the way home?

Hope you gave him some private affection along the way...

FYI: The Seattle Chapter of the National Organization for Women has an online petition to sign asking the Mariners to hold a Pride event.
