Fine Food, Drink and Our Own Company
From our perch in a booth at the Bonefish Grill tonight, The African Queen and I did witness Ryan Zimmerman making a terrific run and grab of a foul ball off the bat of Chase Utley at Citizens Bank Park--seen from a monitor across the restaurant located at the bar. One that clearly showed again how The Z-Man is worthy of The Gold Glove in 2009. Anyone that can routinely race to the tarp, dive over and make a catch while falling down and out of control--is a great fielder. If Our Number 11 doesn't get The Gold Glove this season, it will be more of a farce than when Hanley Ramirez beat Ryan out for The Rookie Of The Year in 2006 (and its worth repeating again--Hanley has developed into one of the best players in The National League--an MVP Candidate. But three years ago, The Z-Man had a better first season).
Other than that wonderful moment with Ryan Zimmerman this evening, not much else was seen by us.
You see, today was Sohna's Birthday--the first without Our Washington Nationals playing a home game since The Inaugural Season--2005. So, to help celebrate the big day, we headed out to the Bonefish Grill for a night of fun and relaxation. She had a great time. Enjoyed every minute of it.
And Baseball was off the menu--for the most part.
Just fine food, drink and our own company--no one else.
