Another Perfect Day at the Stadium…

By Brian | May 31, 2010 | Share on Facebook

We celebrated our son, Avery’s tenth birthday today with a day at Yankee Stadium. We left the house at 9:30AM, got there when the stadium opened, toured the Yankee Museum (including the newly added 2009 World Championship Trophy and a special exhibit on Lou Gehrig, about whom Avery’s brother, Brandon, had recently completed a book report), grabbed some lunch, and enjoyed a picture-perfect afternoon as the Yankees crushed the Cleveland Indians, 11-2. Alex Rodriguez put an exclamation mark on this awesome day with a grand slam home run to blow the game open in the seventh inning.

Our own, personal fireworks came in the middle of the fifth inning when, unbeknownst to Avery, we added his birthday to the list of “Fan Marquee” announcements they make each game:

    Very cool, we hope Avery had a great time! Can’t help but wonder – is that picture the byproduct of your long-time passion (NYY) and your new hobby (Photoshop)? If not, that’s pretty impressive that you surprised him with the message and still managed to get a great picture, before the message disappeared off the board. Actually, either way it’s impressive – doesn’t look Photoshopped to me.

    Good eyes, Mike. The photo of the scoreboard inside the slideshow is real. I had Avery stand with the scoreboard in the background earlier in the game and took a few shots, with the intention of Photoshopping the birthday message in later as the “intro” picture for the slideshow, which is what you see in the blogpost here.

    So the above picture is Photoshopped, but it’s a composite of two actual pictures. Everything in the slideshow is real (except for some cropping & other minor cleanups).
