I was cleaning out the attic today and came across this. I must have swiped it from Yankee stadium back in May 2014. Good size pencil for golf. 8)

You didn't swipe it ... They give them away when you buy a program. You're supposed to use it to keep score!

If you had, it would look something like this (mutatis mutandis):

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. ;D

I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

I hope not! I just discarded a bunch of my old program(me)s, including that one, in a fit of year-end housekeeping. Though, if I had remembered that was "our" game, I'd have hung on to it!  :D

I can't remember much about that game except that the Yankees hit a bunch of home runs, and won. I looked it up: Yankees beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-1. And if it hadn't been for the three of us ... attendance that day would have been only 47,350!

https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA201405170.shtml

The only two guys who played for the Yankees that day who are still with the team are an outfielder, Brett Gardner, and a relief pitcher, Dellin Betances. Several have retired (Jeter, Teixeira, Soriano, Roberts, and Ichiro is more or less retired), others were traded or left as free agents. On the other hand, one of the guys who played for the Pirates that day was with the Yankees for a couple of months last year: Andrew McCutchen. He'll be with the Phillies next year.

Christopher's post in the movies I've watched this week topic about renting dvds reminded me of this article a few weeks back.

That's interesting! And I do hope the last one does remain open for a long time. The locations for these stores seems random. I had an account at a Blockbuster when I was in college but I didn't go there often (they were always more expensive than other options).

Would you believe it? I came across the programme today in another cleanup of papers and junk.

Brett Gardiner on the cover.

Worth any $$$$$$$?

And the final piece of the puzzle.

First the pencil, then the programme and now the ticket stub. 8)

^ That was a great game. Yankees won, 7-1. Five Yankees hit home runs, including Brett Gardner, the only guy in the starting lineup who's still with the Yankees. (He had an RBI double to bring in the only run in today's 1-0 Yankee win over the Toronto Blue Jays.)

To Save Tiny Penguins, This Suburb Was Wiped Off the Map

Quote
PHILLIP ISLAND, Australia — It’s a magical sight: Just as the light begins to vanish, thousands of tiny penguins waddle out of the surf on an island in southeastern Australia, then head up the beach and along well-worn paths toward their burrows.

The “penguin parade” has been a major attraction since the 1920s, when tourists were led by torchlight to view the nightly arrival of the birds — the world’s smallest penguin breed, with adults averaging 13 inches tall — from a day of fishing and swimming.

For much of that time, the penguins lived among the residents of a housing development, mostly modest vacation homes, in tight proximity to cars and pets, as well as ravenous foxes. The penguins’ numbers fell precipitously. But in 1985, the state government took an extraordinary step: It decided to buy every piece of property on the Summerland Peninsula and return the land to the penguins. The process was completed in 2010.

There was a movie made a few years back about those penguins.

A great game and a great day. I remember that it poured with rain the night before and I was worried if it continued the game would be a washout but we woke up the next morning to clear blue skies before heading to the Library, the ballgame and finally dinner at a Greek restaurant.

Good memories. 8) 8)
