Occasionally I chronicle the life of being a fan of the Seattle Mariners. A majority of these days are filled with (relative) pain, though some with hope. Last night's game produced some of the highest levels of elation since the 1995 improbable playoff run, and the glorious 2001 regular season. To watch and enjoy high quality players and interesting people as part of a plan and watching the fruits of their labor in dramatic fashion made the time invested in getting to know the players and the plan of Jack Zduriencik a good investment. It was also great that I could watch some of this game with my Dad.
Franklin Gutierrez, Felix Hernandez and Ichiro. My, oh my.
