A few are done a couple more to go. Went to the Rays game last night, oye thank goodness the seats were free, cause everything else wasn't. The reason teams can't fill the stadium is a family has to take a small loan out to go. <em>246</em> We had fun, but didn't stay for the whole game it ran 18 innings last night <em>234</em> but the rays won <em>104</em> <BR> <BR> Was not I track yeste...
