Texas Rangers vs. Oakland A's-5-15-13

I know my ticket is a little bury, but I like showing it. I guess for me, it proves I was there. I am goofy like that. Anyway, I decided to focus on the game as O.Co Coliseum has not changed since last year. No trees have grown in the outfield and no fences were built. It is still hated by the A's owners but I am just happy to have Major League Baseball in my world:

Got some Rangers before the game:

One thing I have OCD about is getting a media guide from a team. The first time I go for the year I head to the team shop and get a media guide. Well, in Oakland (even though it was just the 20th home game of the year) it was like Jonah looking for the whale. I found a vendor who had the last one in the stadium and I had to get it:

On to the game:

The A's Pat Neshek in the bullpen
The Rangers Tanner Scheppers on the mound
The A's Derek Norris hitting a pop up
The A's Nate Freiman taking a swing
The A's Coco Crisp doing his thing
The A's lost 6-2 but any day at the yard is a great day, even if your team loses:
