4 September 2007 - 0:41What a Weekend!!!
Three exclamation points for a few reasons…
Let me tell you about a 23 year old rookie pitcher making his 2nd Major League start. Clay Buchholz threw a no hitter on Sept 1 2007 against the Baltimor Orioles. Mandy and I were there to witness it with and some good friends. How often do you get to see that happen? Not often.
Keller and I may have had something to do with it. We decided around the 7th inning to start making clucking chicken noises as Clay wound up. We would then scream “Buchholz!” on the release. Needles to say, it worked. We may be doing it for the rest of the season.
I count myself very lucky, not many folks get to be at the ballpark for a no hitter.
During the remainder of the weekend we connected with a new and now good friend out at Bradbury Mountain in Maine. He showed us some phenomenal trails. We had a short ride window, but he made sure every second was action packed. DA hooked up with us for the fun.
To sum up, Bradbury is a really fun place to ride. While we barely made a dent in the trails available, what we did get to ride made us yearn for more.
We’ll be back…. and you can count on it!
