Baseball Road Trip 2007 - Monday
I wish every morning could start with a quick walk toward a destination that sells hot pretzels. And when I say hot pretzels, I mean really super-tasty hot pretzels.
We ordered a dozen of the special treats at Center City Pretzel Company. This was my first trip to the place and I'm certain I'll return before the end of the year. I recall Hot Tub Eric tried to swing by here a few years ago only to find the place closed. At that time I had no idea what I was missing. Now I do. By the way, I ate pretzel after pretzel on the drive from Philly to Pittsburgh.
This is a wacky fantasy baseball type picture. I'll let Listmaker tell the story behind this photo on his blog. It was his idea.
For the first game of the double header in Pittsburgh, our seats were in the sun. It wasn't right in our eyes, but it was hot. Erik and I toughed it out, despite needing to hydrate somewhat frequently.
Listmaker and Emily hide in the shade.
(again, I'll let Listmaker fill you in)

Visiting PNC Park for the third time I'm reminded how great the ballpark is. The view of the city is perhaps one of the best views in baseball.
Instead of going with a french fry laden sandwich from Primanti Brothers, Erik opted for Nachos (which I'd been dreaming about for at least 12 hours).

When Erik is dividing out the pucks, shuffleboard is like 3 card monte.
Listmaker was hooked (Erik already had a grasp of the game). I think we could've played for hours if last call hadn't been called.
