My friend Danica asked me last week if I'd like to go to the game with her. Little did I know what I was in for!

Front. Row. I've never sat that close before.

Yovani pitched 9 strikeouts and only allowed one run in seven innings (and scattered five hits).

I got the opportunity to see Corey Hart hit THREE home runs (his first of the season after being hitless his first 11 AB). Prince went yard, too, his 11th. There were some awesome plays by the Brewers defense and it seemed it couldn't get any better.

The girls and I were on the JumboTron. I've never been on the big screen before! We ended up sitting near a classmate of mine, Megan, too!

In the fifth inning, Rickie Weeks hit a line drive foul ball. Into the face of a woman sitting an isle and 5 seats away from me. Yikes. Minutes later, a staffer came out to present the "victim" with a signed bat. I was so close, you can see "Get Well Soon - Rickie Weeks" signed on the bat.


A high-five from the Bratwurst Racing Sausage topped off the night. I could definitely get used to seats like that! Of note: I always pick the Hot Dog Racing Sausage (#4) to win. He rarely does. But he won tonight! Serendipitous, I say.

The only thing missing was ice cream served in a helmet. Apparently that vendor is closed on Mondays. I decided to try a new Sugar Free LimeLite: Ryan Braun-endorsed energy drink. It was pleasantly yummy and was 5 bucks. Not bad for an energy drink at a stadium price.

Of note: As of tonight, the Brewers have an 7-home-game winning streak and have won 11 of the last 14 games. They're HOT. Turn it up! Way up.
