Big Time Baby O

Weezy and I had an evening to kill.  So, we set out in the smurf to adventure around P.G. county.  Every time we drive by one I always say "I used to love that place!"  and Weezy always shoots it down.  What is "that" place?  Well, it's Bob Evans of course.

Not this time.  This time she gives a sigh and a "finnnnnne!".  We stroll into the Bob Evans and it's a little diner type place.  A hybrid of PoFolks and IHOP.  So, one of us is smiling while one is not enthused.  Poor lil Weezers.

The service was fantastic and the food was sort of edible.  I didn't buy a Bob Evans hat but I'll live around that.  The fact is it was nice of the wife to compromise and try something she knew was going to be bad.  We didn't get food poisoning and for that I'm grateful.  Matter of fact Weezy didn't even eat an entree.  She ate 3 sides.  Ja ja ja.  I did have the pot roast sandwich (hold the bread).  So good.  The best pot roast sandwich I have ever eaten.

Onward to the Bowie Baysox.  They are located right across the street from the Bob Evans by Golly!  Time to go watch the baby O's play the baby Pirates.  The dreaded Altoona Curve are the double A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

I'm 23 and Filthy!
The big time baby O that we got to see was Tennessee fire baller David Hess.  This kid comes out throwing a hefty 95.  He hits corners and gets batters to chase out of the zone.  The best part is when he throws his change up.  I swear to you the ball starts off 100 miles per hour.  The ball then literally splits in half and freaking disintegrates at the batters ankles while he is flipping over to try to swat at it.   Radar gun read out "71".  He is going to cause a back injury!  You could hear the Curve players groan trying to stop their swing.  Splits in half and disintegrates.

Bob Evans started kicking in and Mr. Hess has not given up any runs but Bob Evans is about to.  So, we do the right thing and go home.  In doing so we lived through the Bob Evans dinner but missed out on big time saves Oriole.  Zac Britton just happened to come into pitch right after we left.  He is doing a rehab stint on his way back to the "all grown up O's".

As for the first time ever trying a pot roast sandwich...Thanks Bob Evans. Thanks.
