It depends on how you define "a while". A week more tops? Sure, they can manage that :-D

Well, since you are out there on business, I would assume that you have at least a little dime. Personally, I would suck it up and pay the $28 and go early. You probably won't be able to go there much in your life and I would like to have time to walk around the stadium and then see the game.

the scalper came through. $10 for a seat directly behind home in the 10th row in the second deck. (a $26 ticket). I missed the first 2 outs only. Sat with 5 guys who sold the scalper the ticket for $10 as well so he didn't make anything. I was surprised at how empty the stadium was for having only been the second home game of the season.

Anywho, LBJ was right. Haren actually looked good except for the 3-2 pitch he tried to blow past Hinske who was sitting on it. Other than that, the other highlight came when some kid in the right field bleachers took the second dinger off his noggin and it knocked him out cold. All the ushers rushed down to him and after about 5 minutes he was fortunately able to get up on his own power ;-D
