The Saints Game by Ann Treacy

We held the annual Saints game party a little later than usual due to our Irish trip. Every year we get a bunch of tickets to a Saints game. The Saints are the minor league baseball team in St Paul. The saints are owned by Miek Veeck, a great baseball promoter, Bill Murray, the actor. Billy cooks up brats and burgers and we hang out.

We had about 100 people come to the tailgating before the game and we definitely used the 60 tickets we had for the game. It was great to see everyone. The big news is that the neighbors (Greenhecks and Howards) ended up in the Saints hot tub – lucky bugs.

The Saints didn’t win, but that was OK. At the bottom of the ninth they were behind by 4. The bases were loaded and there was a full county. Sean pointed out that it was just like the Cubs-Orioles game earlier this year. (I had to trust him on that one.) Unfortunately we did not get the grand slam homerun we needed.
