The Trickle - Coincidence

September 5, 2012 - Brian Ferry
I hadn't been to a professional baseball game in years, but, a few weeks ago, I got that rare treat. Five of us made the trip down to Pittsburgh. I consider myself a Pirates fan, but I could only name one or two players on the team before that game. We all had a good time at the park, good seats, the game was a good one. We got to see a triple, right after I told my son that triples were very uncommon and we probably wouldn't see one. At one point, my wife asked if I thought we'd run into anyone we know. I said, "I doubt it." While I was confident there were at least a few people we knew in the ballpark, it's a big place. Like the triple, as I was taking a fifth-inning stretch near some food vendors, I heard, "Brian!" Lo and behold, there was someone I knew. To add to the coincidence, it was a former colleague - Chuck Hayes. What are the odds?
