Today's Twins Game

Despite the heat, I had a great time at the Twin's game today.  We had seats just behind home plate on the third base side.  9 rows back in the section, which was behind the "dug out box" section", so we were really probably 25 rows from the field.

Here was the view from my seat:


Before the game, four Navy Seals jumped from an airplane over the field and landed in the outfield!  It was amazing.  The first jumper had a trail of smoke trailing him.  One had a POW/MIA flag behind him and another had a huge American flag behind him.  It was really amazing to see these guys parachuting right over downtown and land inside the stadium.  I didn't know this was going to happen, but it was almost worth the price of admission without seeing the game!  After they landed, the plane they jumped from (some large military plane) flew low over the stadium very loudly as they launched fireworks in the outfield.  Very cool.  Click on the pictures below to see a larger image.

Oh yeah, the Twins won 6-0.  Liriano did a good job, but didn't overwhelm the Indians.  He had to pitch out of several jams, including a bases-loaded, 1 out inning in which he got a double play to get out of it.  Delmon Young had a few hits again to continue his hot streak.  No home runs or anything very dramatic, but at least they avoided being swept by the Indians.
