As an early Father’s Day present, Jonathan hooked me up with BoSox tickets for their interleague series against our hometown Atlanta Braves at nearby Turner Field. Yes, I’m a Braves fan, but I’m a bigger Red Sox fan, and jumped at the chance to let Sam see them play. This was Sam’s third MLB game, the first at six weeks, and then again last Fall. As in the past, he was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd noise and the sheer number of people, but soon began to enjoy himself. The BoSox won, of course, pushing Atlanta further into a downward spin they have been in lately, this being their 16th loss in 19 games, and their worst record since 1990. In better news, this win – along with the Yankees loss today – put the Red Sox into a tie for first in the AL-East. Woohoo. Photo gallery is here.

Please dont let Sam grow up to be a Braves Fan. If he ever does the “Tomahawk Chop” he is in a lot of trouble with his Uncle Scott.
His mom concurs – and I have to admit it’s annoying as heck myself…
