Mariners Baseball Opening Day Yeah the M's won their Season Opener in Seattle today! My plans to go to game were interrupted so I didn't get any photos for you - but my nephew got our tickets (poor kid) to the SOLD OUT game and I'm sure he didn't have a problem finding a few college buddies to join him. They went a few hours early to make a day of celebrating. I didn't have to miss the game entirely though - tuned in from the couch instead of live - word is that parking was up to 40.00 by this afternoon (YUK)- see there is always something to be thankful for!
