HEY MIKE!
« on: January 04, 2020, 06:51:26 pm »
Hi Folks.

So this guy goes to the baseball game.

He loves going to Wrigley Field and the ball game. You gotta get a beer and a dog (D'uh!) but his favorite thing is the cheesy fries.

So, he gets his beer and his dog and his cheesy fries and he finds his section in the seats, and he's working his way across the row to A23, and he's trying to manage his beer and his dog and cheesy fries... when he he hears someone in the upper deck call "Hey Mike!"

He makes apologies to the people whose feet he is stepping on, and he sets down his beer and his dog and his cheesy fries, and scans the upper deck. ...Nothing.

He makes his was to his seat, and finally gets settled. He's just about to enjoy the first great bite of his dog when he hears it again, from the upper stands... "Hey Mike!"

He sets down his dog and his beer and his cheesy fries and he stands up and turns his hat around and scans the upper stands.

...Still nothing.

So he sits down. He takes a swig of his beer and a bite of his dog, and he's just about to take a big bite of cheesy fries when he he hears it again, from just above in the upper decks... "Hey Mike!"

So (dammit) he sets down his beer and his dog and his cheesy fries and he stands up and looks back and up into the upper stands.

...Nothing.

This goes on and on until after the 7th inning stretch. His beer and dog and fries are long gone but he got some peanuts from the peanut guy and he has a third beer from the beer guy.

It's top of the 8th. The Cubbby's are by one. Bases are loaded, it's a full count...Then he hears it again, from the upper deck, just above... "Hey Mike!"

That tears it. He throws his beer down, splashing a little ol' lady, an Orioles fan. He tosses his peanuts over the people in the next row. He looks up into the upper deck and shouts,

"My name's not Mike!"

Great one.  Hits you right out of the blue!  Or out of the ballpark.  Bravo.
