We Go to the Baseball Game
Here are some photographs.
Marcia and the boys outside the Museum, posing next to one of the panthers.
I think this is a Mammoth on the left and a Mastodon on the right.
Pterodactyls. Very cool.

A view of the field, looking toward left field from our seats along the first baseline. Comerica Park is a great place to see a game. Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions, is just over to the left. You can see the sign past the third baseline. On Saturday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins were also in town (at the Joe Louis Arena) playing the Red Wings in game 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Detroit won that game, too (5-0), and the Motor City was rocking. Just outside of Comerica Park is "Hockeytown," a bar owned by Chris Chelios, one of the Red Wings players. The area was packed with Red Wing fans, and a cheer went up in Comerica Park every time the progress of the Stanley Cup game appeared on the scoreboard in the photo.
Liam (he's the cute one) and his Dad.
Carlos takes a self-portrait, with Liam.
We had a great deal of fun and yes, the Tigers won, 2-1. It wasn't much of a game for offense, but the Tigers' starter, Edwin Jackson, pitched a complete game, striking out the heart of the Angels' order in the 9th inning.
