But that Expos Friday night game, I agree, was something else. None of that usual "when is it going to be finished?" stuff from my g/f.

Maybe we were 95 000 for the Als opener...
Jerry White hit a 3 run homer, right in front of us, we were down the 3rd baseline and couldn't quite follow it to see if it was fair or foul, I just remember the explosion of sound when it was ruled fair.

Still, my last memories of the place weren't good ones. It was neglected, poorly run and a monument to stupidity in the end, in what seemed like an organized attempt to turn us away. Waddaya gonna do ?
