|Okay, this looks like Freddie had the tiny kid sign a ball for him in return. If this is the case, could we possibly love Freddie Freeman more? No. No we couldn't. ❤|
This evening started out pretty super-fun and went super-downhill. I went with my brother, his girlfriend, her best friend and her boyfriend, and my friend David, who found a set of tickets the Braves put on Twitter! More on the upgrade later, let's look at some batting practice pictures first. Click to enlarge!
|My brother. "I'm going to get a home run, Sis."|
Brother: "No. I am. You'll see."
|Moylo's still looking way-thin!|
|They were...mirroring each other? It was cute. Also, I heart CoryGearrin. Have I mentioned that today? :)|

|Who is this Cardinal? He was heckling back the hecklers by making the crowd scream - literally scream left, then right - for a baseball, then he'd throw it in to the bat boy. I kinda liked him. :D|
|Hi Matt Holliday.|
After beepee I went to visit with some friends and saw the Braves' tweet, saying come find these upgrade tickets! Well, our seats were in the nosebleeds and I wasn't too excited about sitting up there, and I knew *exactly* where the picture was... the only problem is, it was across Fan Plaza and there was a concert going on. I knew there was no way I could get there before someone else got to the tickets first, not when almost 40 people had already seen the tweet. So I went back to talking to my friends, la la, went to take Huddy warmup pictures...
|Huddy looks a tiny bit scared by the interim pitching coach, hee hee.|
|Huddy in the pen|
So while I'm taking Huddy pics, Dave walks up and flashes the Twitter upgrade tickets! NO WAY. Do I want to sit with him? Why yes, yes I do!! They were in 108, above the visitor dugout, and included 755 Club access. Peace out everyone, this is my new view!
|I've tried so many times to get a good pic of their chest-pat switch-off and it's always blurry. Guess it's not meant to be. *sigh*|
|Did I mention these seats are amazing?|
|"Five fo Fweddie", 5yo SJ says|
|I'm just going to smolder here for the Twins|
|There are approximately one million EO pics in the full album. They are all good. Look at them.|
|Usually I like good facial hair. Chris Carpenter... better without it.|
|Hit it. Try. Heh heh.|
|Go. This wasn't Kimmeh's best outing, and we went into extras...|
|Hi Alison. Hi Molly.|
|Absolutely flying up my list of Fave Braves: Cory Gearrin|
|"I am going to throw you very hard, and you are going to swerve a lot, but don't worry, it'll only hurt a little when you land."|
|It's getting dark... the end is near...|
|My favorite cotton candy vendor! He has the best shoes.|
|The umpiring got worse and worse through the game. By extra innings, the fans around were hoarse from screaming. Fredi's look of disbelief here reflects how I felt that night.|
|Hi Beardy Rossy! Suntrust Club Guy with Sunglasses was talking to him.|
|Braves did not win. Everyone was angry.|
Thanks for sharing your ticket upgrade, Dave! That was pretty awesome!
