At the old ball game -- the Ducks dine on Bluefish

Last night we saw what will probably be our last Ducks game of the season. The team is a strong contender for the playoffs, and we may buy tickets if they are, but ...

The goal was to see the Ducks play each team in the Atlantic League, seven teams in all. We met that goal a couple of weeks ago, but that was the night Drew won two tickets for the September 3 game against the Bridgeport Bluefish.

So, off we went.

The series against the Bluefish was important, the Bluefish are also in the race for the playoffs. The Bluefish took game one, the Ducks won a laugher game two, and we were present for the rubber game of the match.

Free tickets = great seats, right behind home plate.

The Bluefish took an early lead, it was 2-0 at the end of the second. The Ducks tied it up in the 6th.

And then came the bottom of the 9th, the bases were loaded and a walk-off ... excuse me, a "waddle-off" single won the game.

Not a bad way to spend an evening.

Mets-Yankees at Citi Field in two weeks.

Oh, yeah, I love baseball.
