After a few too many instances of buying a game ticket and then not being able to get to the game for various dumb reasons, I'm finally (fingers crossed) going to make my personal debut at CHS Field in St Paul tomorrow.

The weather looks perfect for baseball (partly cloudy, high in the upper 70s). If you're going to a Saints game soon, make sure you're prepared ahead of time and leave your bullhorn at home.
