The Gwinnett Braves

I rolled off of the bus around 8am in northeast Atlanta. I then drove through Atlanta traffic to Zac's place, very south of Atlanta. I drove there to grab some audio files from a hard drive... a hard drive, in hind sight, that was not in his possession. I left empty handed & made my way back to northeast Atlanta. The whole excursion cost me 4 hours (& I'm sure a few $$$ in gas).
I also ran some errands around Snellville & had lunch. I sat down to watch "Shutter Island" on DVD with Mom & my brother, Josh. He's in town for vacation. Why he picked this hot summer - I don't know. I ended up falling asleep; compiling my Z's.
We left the house around 6pm for Coolray Stadium - home of the Gwinnett Braves (the Atlanta Braves AAA team). I've never been to a G Braves game. This is their second year here since the move from Richmond, NC.
The heat was bearable after the 3rd inning. We sat in the second row behind home, slightly off to the left. Great seats! Every time the count was full (3 balls, 2 strikes) my Mom would say "full house." Josh & I didn't have the heart to correct her. Plus, it was rather entertaining.
Anyway, the Braves won. Fun was had by all. I will go again. Totally worth it.
A full day of work for tomorrow. Complete report to come.
