WENT TO A DIAMONDBACK'S GAME AND A JOHN McCAIN SIGHTING BROKE OUT!

YEP, RIGHT THERE FOR ME TO PHOTOGRAPH, JOHN McCAIN, IN THE FLESH. IT'S AMAZING, ALL THE PEOPLE THAT TURN OUT FOR ME AND MONICA. HIS WIFE IS TWO SEATS TO HIS LEFT (USE YOUR LEFT CURSOR BUTTON IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME.)

SO ANYWAY, MONICA AND I WENT TO PHOENIX TO DROP STEVE OFF AT THE AIRPORT (HE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO MAKE HIS HOMEWARD BOUND FLIGHT RESERVATIONS FROM PHOENIX) AND THEN WE WENT TO CHASE FIELD TO WATCH THE METS PLAY THE DIAMONBACKS. LUCKY US. WE GOT TO SEE SANTANA PITCH. AND HE DIDN'T DISAPPOINT!

NEITHER DID DAVID WRIGHT! HE'S JUST AN ALL AROUND EXCELLENT BALL PLAYER.

HERE'S DAVID SWINGING AND AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, HE HIT A HOME RUN ON THIS PITCH. HOW LUCKY CAN I GET WITH MY PHOTO KARMA?

AND HERE ARE THE FANS FIGHTING FOR THE BALL IN THE LEFT FIELD STANDS. THE GUY WITH THE WHITE SHIRT SEEMS TO HAVE A BEAD ON IT. BUT HE'S NOT THE PERSON WHO ENDED UP WITH THE BALL. IT'S THE PERSON OVER HIS LEFT SHOULDER IN A RED SHIRT WHO CAUGHT THE BALL ON THE RICOCHET. TRY YOUR LEFT CURSOR AGAIN FOR A BETTER LOOK.

EVEN WHEN THE DIAMONDBACKS BENT THE RULES A LITTLE AND TRIED FIELDING 13 PLAYERS, THEY COULDN'T BEAT THE METS.
WHAT'S THAT YOUR SAYING? THOSE EXTRA RED SHIRTS AREN'T BALL PLAYERS? THEY'RE GROUNDS CREW?.....OH......COULD'A SWORN ONE OF THEM GUYS CAME TO BAT.

DEARLY DEPARTED, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN BY THE FAITHFUL.

JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA WHERE WE WERE SEATED.
VERY, VERY HIGH UP. THIRD DECK. IT'S NOT A REALLY GOOD PLACE TO TAKE PICTURES FROM. TRUTH IS THOUGH, WE ENJOYED THE LOCATION VERY MUCH. I DON'T THINK THAT THERE'S A REALLY BAD SEAT IN THIS STADIUM. WELL, MAYBE IN THE MANAGER'S DOG HOUSE.

OMG that shot of Santana needs to go to MLB!!! I am sure they or the Mets will buy it - wow!

...thanks for the ride; wish I'd stayed, as usual.

Look at the expression on Santana's face. Wow...

Even I enjoyed this game, great seats everywhere in this stadium. A nice day seeing a nearby big city. And the game photos are good. It was fun to see McCain, who sincerely looked like he was enjoying himself, even when the cameras weren't around.
