Peter King of Sports Illustrated in the Bleachers Today

My girlfriend and I went to the game today and sat in the bleachers - sorry we didn't stop by this time Al - and were treated to a very sunny game that ended up being a pitcher's duel.  The guys to our right were abuzz and I learned that it was because the guy immediately to our left was Peter King, a senior football sportswriter from Sports Illustrated. 

He was apparently in town for a day and decided to walk up and buy a ticket to enjoy the game.  It was his first game in 3 years and he had a very professional looking spiral book of scorecards.  Being from Boston, he wore a Boston Red Sox hat but as soon as people figured out who he was, they were very cordial and friendly.  A few people bought him beers and made him feel welcome.

Unfortunately, he left after the 8th inning and didn't get to see Wood pitch.  He did get to see the Aramis Ramirez 3 run bomb and was hooting and hollering and high-fiving with the rest of us, a broad grin on his face.

Thought I'd mention this because it was a pretty cool experience - I could repeat a couple stories he told us but I don't want to do that without his permission.
