Following the event, we saw Jere and his girlfriend with Joanna, as well as Sam Horn--then on the sidewalk outside I managed to dodge getting run over by Sam Horn just in time to be nearly run over by Larry Lucchino.
Haven't watched my copy of the DVD yet, but I do want to see one clip in particular--Papelbon walked up to Dustin Pedroia in the outfield in BP, and Pedie looked right at him and said "I'm miked up, so don't say anything stupid..."
Manny Delcarmen up close and personal...
The light was terrible, of course, but I liked Schill's blue-on-blue look and the shadow as he carried the 2004 trophy across the stage.
Awful light, again, but just to reinforce how amusing Curt's outfit was:
Dan Roche talks to Dave Magadan.
(I was talking to Cyn as we waited outside when Roche walked past us--I had that immediate someone I know! response and almost called out a greeting before I fortunately realized that, er, I don't actually know him, I just see him a lot, on TV.)
Glad I managed a head-to-toe shot of MDC's suit!
"Come on, Tito. You know me. You couldn't have given me a call to ask what I was wearing?"
That said, you can see how utterly unfazed Schill was by the whole thing. ^_^
It's hard for me to reconcile this Tito with the one who chews on that thing he chews on.
I think Mags "heard" what I was thinking: "I'm so glad San Diego cut you loose! Their loss!"
* The most surreal moment of the evening for me: as we waited by the red carpet, Wally came up to me, motioned with his hands as though he was extending and retracting something, then cocked his head and raised his shoulders in question. For a fraction of a second I thought What?--and then realized that he was asking me why I didn't have the big ass camera. When even Wally knows your MO, you know you're in trouble!
