Earlier today, Eric Snider, Joran Oppelt and I trekked to Tropicana Field, home of the first-place Tampa Bay Rays, to pay a special visit to their manager, Joe Maddon, baseball genius and fine-wine connoisseur. We can't reveal yet the purpose for our visit, but I did capture some images.
As I suspected, the fake grass does look just like the Brady Bunch grass up close.
Joe was extremely gracious and very cool to let us bother him during the middle of a pennant race.
Maybe we were good luck. The Rays bitchslapped the Yankees shortly thereafter.
