Last week I saw all 3 games in Atlanta (my first live Giants games ever — can I pick ‘em or what?). When we went to the Georgia Aquarium I thought about you and the little spotted fish you got attached to in Miami and I hoped you got to travel with the team to Atlanta so you could visit the aquarium. It was amazing. Not as good as seeing Crawford bring in three runs to break the tie in the 11th, but really – what’s better than that? : )

It’s great that you were able to go – those were some great games! I wasn’t able to go on that trip, but the next time I’m in Atlanta I’ll definitely check it out – thanks for the tip!
