We had a day off in Dallas today, so we went to see our friend's brother pitch for the Texas Rangers. Adam got to throw out the first pitch.



video


I must apologize for the quality of the video, I had a mouthful of peanuts and my hand was all salty. The pixelated black stick is Adam.



Luckily they had a copy of my favorite magazine in my hotel room, Garden & Gun. I really don't feel safe wandering around a garden without firepower. Everything is gunnier in Texas.

Damn, i can't believe nobody told me about that. I would have freaked out.

Maya said...

That's awesome! Adam throwing the first pitch--I never expected that. I liked how they started playing "Beautiful Thieves" and announced you guys and you were laughing.

How cool to be at the Rangers game. I saw them here in June. Had fun in MA but you guys were on and off WAY too quickly.

Rebecca Baxter said...

My uncle was there! He called my dad to tell me about Adam! Since apparently it's common knowledge that I love AFI.

And I enjoyed all the giggling:)

Jadey, you have an adorable chuckle... JS

Darn tooten, no good and proper southern debutant would be caught without one. One must include the peach cobbler in one hand and a peerty 12 gauge that matches the dress one has on in the other.

Dea Night said...

Ah Jade, hearing you chuckle and that intro made me smile :) just what I needed. Now, to make my Semester start off right, can you offer more information on when Blaqk Audio will be out? Just a little hint to get us through! As always your just awesome <3

DEAR Jade,
Unfourtanatley due to my financial circumstances at the momment, I will NOT be able to attend your show in SF, Sept. 4th.

I know this is off topic, but I had to let you know and ask of you guys,, if given the oppourtunity later, you guys will come back "soon" to the West Coast -- hopefully 'SF',, wink wink!! ;) I'm just really down that I wont be able to make it after all. Have a good show though. Lost's of love and peanut butter love.. ;}

it was amazing when beautiful thieves started playing :)

and i can't wait for the new blaqk audio album to come out!

chaoskitten[DF] said...

Cool! :)

Sometimes weeds in the lawn can get a little unruly, a gun will sort that out no problem! XD

folkedforlife said...

That was really cool of them to play Beautiful Thieves! Who decided who got to throw the pitch? Was there a four-way arm wrestling match? Thanks for the update, and the new reading material (Gardens and Guns) :)

Shy Girls Win said...

Jade I'm SOOOO sorry I haven't commented in FOREVER!!!!

You make me laugh a lot :D

I wish my dad had tickets to that game- he buys tickets and sells them for a higher price to make cash.... If he had them and he sold them......

kirstie said...

Why the heck were you in Texas? Ah well...you guys were still four hours away from me in Houston. Hope you had a good time at the game.

And it's only gunnier in Texas when it has to do with rednecks.

Anonymous said...

Did the guy announce Robert Adam Carson? That's Adam's first name? I had no idea...

Anonymous said...

Son, I am disappoint. Who goes on at the time that is printed on the ticket? I want a do over. Luckily I only missed Medicate.
Why was everybody just standing there in the pit? Why did you only play for 1/2 hour? Why did I have to watch a drunk bunny when I could have been watching AFI play more songs? Why, Daddy, Why? :0

Jade, you don't have to post this. Just had to let off some steam. I'm not really upset. It takes a lot more than that to get me upset.
Just, it was the strange. Saw you twice on the DU tour. This was, well..... different. Now, I know you were the opening act. But I have seen opening acts for opening acts play longer than that. I know you didn't have control over that. Just kinda bummed that's all.
Any chance of a real AFI SoCal tour? I don't think this qualifies. I kind of miss the bloody noses and great crowds of the old days.
Well, good news is we did leave early. Very early. Got home in no time. I'm tired, I'm rambling. I'm wishing I heard more AFI tonight :D

You are a riot.

It would be cool if he could pitch at a Giants game :D home team baby!!! But I was watching that game on TV at a Mexican resteraunt, eating a vegan quesadilla (yum), and I was intently watching, then I heard "And Adam Carson of AFI will be throwing the first pitch", I literally dropped my coke glass. I started cheering too. My mom got very angry.

JoeMama said...

The only thing that would make baseball watchable would be if AFI was in it.

Chromagic said...

Haha, nice. Even though the video's not the greatest quality, it sounded like it would've been awesome to hear Beautiful Thieves over the arena's speakers.
