It was another very hot day in Beloit on Friday. Not a lot to do. Did a little shopping in the morning. Applebees is always so good. Went there for lunch and I certainly recommend that Sizzling N'allins Skillet!! As we were driving over to the ball park before batting practice, the temperature showed 102 degrees on my car! But, the bank's said "just" 95. It was really hot. The Snappers were doing a lot of work on the field, taking infield, working on situational defense. I love that stuff. All before a long round of infield. The game wasn't as dramatic as the night before, but that's because Matt Tomshaw was terrific and the bats came up big, especially in a five-run 7th. Went back to Applebees after the game with a group that included Jeremy Nygaard, AJ Pettersen, Josh Pettersen (AJ's brother) and Dallas Gallant. That was a lot of fun, watching the Olympics and telling stories. Gotta admit, when my head hit the pillow last night, I was out!!
Day 3 today... I b elieve we'll have some lunch and Jersey's and get back out to the ball park. They've played Kane County the last two nights. Now they'll be playing Wisconsin (the Brewers affiliate). It's a fireworks game tonight, which means there should be some people there... Howeer, there is also talk of thunderstorms... That would likely mean two games on Sunday!
