Saturday night, Jeremy and my dad had the privilege of attending Game 3 of the World Series. My brother had a friend who was affiliated with one of the teams and was able to get him a "good deal" on two tickets. He immediately thought of Jeremy and Dad. And, of course, they both were ecstatic! They found out they were going to the game on Wednesday and Jeremy was on Cloud 9 the rest of the week. They left town around 11:00am and headed to Dallas. When they arrived they ate lunch at Pappadeaux (Jeremy's choice, I'm sure). When the gates opened at 3:00pm, they were there waiting. They wanted to watch batting practice and take in the sights! They had a great time! A big thanks to my brother for his thoughtfulness...and for taking advantage of his "connections". What a trip of a lifetime!! Here are some pics taken from Jeremy's phone.
