Perfect Attendance No Longer

In my season and a third tenure with the Oakland Athletics, I take great pride in the fact that I haven’t missed a single game. My perfect attendance stands at 108 possible games, 108 worked. In many ways, this should be seen as a pretty minor feat. After all, I do get paid to watch baseball!

I hate to ruin this perfect attendance, but will be out of town for the upcoming 3-game homestand versus the Minnesota Twins (June 4-5-6). I’m sad to be away from the ballpark for so long, but wouldn’t miss a game unless it was really worth it. In this case, my 10-year college reunion is a very special, not-to-be-missed event.

I’ll be back at the Coliseum on Monday, June 7 vs. the Angels and look forward to catching up with everyone then. In the meantime, stay in touch!

Even great feats of co0nsecutive games has to come to an end.
You wonder if Cal Ripken Junior went into the Baltimore Oriole’s Managers office and just said he was tired on the day he ended his streak.
The good thing is that when you return, you can re-establish a new attendance record and celebrate when you hit 109 games.
It is okay to miss one, but it is a great thrill when you return and see what you missed out on….even if it was 1-3 games.
Go get them during your second run at setting a new personal attendance record.
