Mariners at Blue Jays (5/23/15)

Over Memorial Day weekend, my folks came out to PA and we took a little roadtrip to Niagara Falls and Toronto for a couple Mariners games. Sadly, Colleen discovered only a few days before the trip that her passport had expired. Therefore, Mommy had to stay home when we went on the trip.

Here is a video recap of the first half of the trip including the drive up to Niagara Falls on Friday and the Mariners excellent win over the Blue Jays on Saturday:

By the way, the guy who is posing with my folks and the boys on the field after Kids Run the Bases was our usher in Section 113B.  His name was Kyle.  He was awesome.  We met him right at the end of BP and chatted with him all day.  After the boys ran the bases, I was taking a picture of my folks and the boys on the field when a voice said, “You need to be in that picture!”  I turned around and it was Kyle.  He took some picts of us all and then I hopped out of the picture and had him hop in.  He was our usher the following day as well.  Great guy.

Also, this was our first time ever seeing the Rogers Centre with the roof open.  WOW — it is 3000% better with the roof open.  And the weather was great all weekend for the game.

    My name is Chris Helms and I am an exhibition designer based out of Chicago. We are designing an exhibition in Philadelphia and we have found an image on your blog that we are very interested in using in the exhibition. The image would be displayed very large (roughly 5ft x 3ft) and would be on display for the duration of the exhibition.

    We are more than happy to discuss any licensing fees and requirements you may have. If you are interested, please contact me at to discuss specifics.
