wmtc night at skydome, part 2

Last night was another successful wmtc night at Skydome, with a handy 9-3 Sox win. The dome was open, Dice-K was on, and a good time was had by all, I think. We met Woti-Woti, who reads both JoS and wmtc, and is a long-time Canadian Red Sox fan and all around good guy. Also in attendance: Mason of Life Without Borders (Nick was home with the flu), M@, James and Lori, Scott M and Dawn, and Dianne, a silent but loyal reader.

Scott M is the friend of wmtc who volunteered to get us half-price tickets, then arranged the whole thing. Allan and I are going to every Red Sox-Blue Jays game this year, all at half price, courtesy of Scott (and Ted Rogers). Blog-friends are so cool.

Our poor Tala is very sick. We've decided to treat this one symptomatically, and we'll keep her on the special diet. But if these intestinal troubles recur one more time, we have to start some testing to see what might be causing it. Did I always worry about my dogs this much? Or did our terrible experience with Buster leave me this way?

I had a great time last night, and I'm glad someone cancelled, leaving the free ticket!

I didn't connect the name with the handle, in Woti-Woti's case -- but I enjoyed your heckling, W-W. And it was great to put faces to names I keep reading, with Scott and Mason.

Hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did. And incidentally, L, I believe mocking Jays fans does constitute baseball talk. Heck, even I can get on board with that stuff.

OK, we've had an adjudication. This means there was more baseball talk last night than I previously thought. :)

I'm glad to hear you had so much fun - I did too. It's great to meet blog friends IRL. I hope to see everyone in our backyard in June!

Oh man. Sorry to hear about Tala. That really sucks.

Thanks David. We're skipping the game tonight so we can stay home with her. We're waiting for the meds to kick in, but if they don't, we'll have to take her to the emergency clinic. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the kind words, folks--even though I felt afterwards that I'd practically ignored everyone because I get so wrapped up in the game. I really enjoyed meeting everyone and kudos to Scott for the great tix (Mr. Rogers has gone up a tic in my book) and L-girl for the masterminding and bankrolling (and Tala to GWS).

And I felt that I'd practically ignored the game because I was trying to be social! Group outings are great, but a serious fan can only do it once in a while.

I was also hoping Scott and Dawn were having a good time, and not feeling left out on the end there. Baseball games are somewhat incompatible with being a good host.
