Basically that's what I came on this topic for, I ran into Deck there and like a bunch of people anyhow, back to the subject of which I went.....
For the National Anthem.. they used a recording of Trevor's dad singing the national anthem back in 1995... I literally think every man in that stadium cried just a little.... it was so touching...!


Did anyone else go today??

Hey, I'll be the first to admit that I got choked up watching it. It was awesome. And the look on the Brother Hoffman's said it all. Wow.

I watched it both times. Taped it the second time they played it. It was too good not to save this one.

Yep. They showed a wide shot with everyone watching the Jumbo Tron, and then they kept cutting from the video itself, back to Trevor and family, back to video, etc....

I was like.. who the **** came up with that idea? it was touching but I would have had a mental breakdown if my dad died and then at my retirement ceremony they play a video of him singing at my ballgame in a stadium.. I would just melt...!

touching but if my dad's voice was surrounding me like that.. I would be balling like a baby in the fetal position

Trevor's Mom seemed to be getting a huge kick out of it. Where Trevor and his brothers were balling their eyes out, she was smiling. She was happy and did a better job of keeping it together.  :) Even one of Trevor's boys was crying.

I do have issue with Steve Garvey being at any and all Padre functions, only because whenever he is being interviewed on camera or on radio outside of San Diego, he professes to be a Dodger through and through. I will forever hold his game winning home run as the single greatest hit in Padre history, but he rubs me the wrong way.

The difference is that Hoffy doesn't go around saying he is a Marlin or a Brewer through and through. I just find it a bit laughable that Garvey builds up the Dodgers as much as he does, but they still refuse to retire his number. It's all about disrespecting the only team that actually did retire his number.

Having said that, I'm watching THE home run right now.  ;D

Yankees Set MLB Record With 3 Slams In One Game

Look, I hate the Yankees just as much as the next guy. And trust me, I hate them with a passion. But I gotta give it up for Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Russell Martin for pulling off the ultimate hat trick. Wow. 

PS
I still hate the Yankees;D
