Slice Of Life

Slice Of Life, is a Weblog (BLOG) that I write, in which I try to tell some sort of story about something, or someone in my life. Sometimes it's happy, sometimes not, sometimes informative, sometimes...... HA, gotcha, did ya think that I was going to say not? Don't know me very well, do ya? :=) I will try to update the BLOG from time to time, whenever I can.

My personality is outgoing, I use to be a wallflower, until I realized that it was all the outgoing people that were having the most fun. It was a tough conversion, but nobody I know today would even remotely consider me to be a wallflower. Basically, when I was young, my parents taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I haven't quite found the "anything" part to be always true, but it has inspired me to always try to do, and be, my best.

Winner At The D-Backs Game

So, ya didn't really get an SOL this week, just Tom's bitching, so I guess I owe ya one. Last Night, we went to the D-Backs/Yankees Game at the Bob. Boy most New York Fans are STILL Obnoxious and Rude, I guess nothing's changed in the 26 years since I left NYC, but that's another story. Guess What? Last Night, I won $50.00 from Fry's Supermarkets at the Game! CoooooL huh? You may remember from a past SOL, I told ya that at the Diamondbacks Games, have a promotion where they get the Fans to hold up their supermarket discount card, they scan the crowd, and pick someone out for display on "The Big Screen" and the $50.00 Gift Certificate. The last time they picked our section, they gave it to the lady with the cute baby. But what I noticed, was that just before it happened, a DBacks Employee, with a headset was standing at the bottom of our section, scanning the crowd, and being directed. I realized that they pre-pick the section, then look for somebody to give it to, so for the last 2 years, at every game I go to (16 season tix per year), I've been watching for that employee. Well, last night….. I saw him! They announced they were going to do the promotion, I looked down, and there he was, scanning the crowd, just like before! Since they ALWAYS pick a DBacks fan, and I was wearing my DBacks Jersey and hat, I whipped out my Fry's Card, Stood up, and waved my card and my arms around like a fool….. The employee starts walking UP THE STAIRS, the announcer is saying "We're scanning the crowd….. The employee stops on our row, and the announcer says….. "And the winner is…….. YOU"! BOOM! The camera zooms in, and there's Tom….. up on the Big Screen, 40ft High! The guys hands me the $50.00 Gift Card, I throw my hands up in the air in victory, turn around 360 degrees, and the Whole Section Cheers! So….., High 5's all around, 15 seconds of fame, and Filet Mignon this weekend, it just doesn't get much better then that! :-)
