9 Innings, 8 Packs, 3 Beers, 4 Snacks

Tonight I am going to engulf myself in baseball.  The Rangers and Yankees are on TV and I’m going to savor every pitch.  How?  I’m going to open this here blaster of GQ, 

and am going to make every effort to only open one pack per inning.    I’m also going to treat myself to a nice baseball themed menu tonight.  Here is my itinerary:
1st Inning:  Bratwurst/ Beer #1; 1st Pack
2nd Inning:  Bratwurst #2; 2nd Pack
3rd Inning:  3rd Pack
4th Inning: Popcorn/ Beer #2; 4th Pack
5th Inning:
6th Inning:  Ice Cream; 5th Pack
7th Inning:  6th Pack
8th Inning: Beer #3 ; 7th Pack
9th Inning:  8th Pack

That’s the plan anyway.  We’ll see how I pace myself on the menu part.  The beers will all be different, by the way.  There is a very nice liquor store in this area that has a huge selection of single bottles which you can mix and match to make your own custom 6 pack.  I picked a bunch of stuff I’ve never tried before.
To further enhance my evening, I’m going to keep score. 
I am going to make myself enjoy the game no matter what.  If Yu Darvish gets shelled, I’m not going to stress about it.  If A-Rod hits 3 homers, I’m not going to pout.  It’s one measly baseball game and I’m going to enjoy it for what it is. 
Again, that’s the plan.  Tomorrow, I’ll post the results of the blaster break, and show my pretty scorecard.

And how about some commentary on the beers? I'm always looking for something new to try.

I hope you got a Darvish SP to go along with his great start!!

Holy Moly. Was that a game of what? Kuroda looked solid, but Darvish was something altogether different. That slow curve of his is something to behold.

I thoroughly enjoyed the game myself. This past saturday I watched the Yanks / BoSox - that one was solid too!
