An unconventional report on a day with the Gwinnett Braves, Ozzie Albies, and Macaroni & Cheese.

I have 2 problems. I am not afraid to admit it.

First: I’ve got a food problem.

I am severely lactose intolerant. My problem is, my wife refuses to believe it’s a real thing. I’m not that mad about it because the foods are so delicious…I just can’t say no.

Second: I freakin LOVE baseball! I am INSANE when it comes to Braves Baseball. I watch/listen to it all day. While I am sitting working, I am listening to the Braves. If we are not playing, I am either replaying a game I missed or checking up on the Cubs (don’t judge me) and other teams on my radar.

But this is a story of me, my wife’s world famous Macaroni and Cheese and the debut of the newest Gwinnett Brave Ozzie Albies.

I purchased tickets to the Gwinnett Braves game as soon as they released their promotional calendar and rolled out the bobblehead schedule.

I must have one of each bobblehead and not getting them from ebay. I have to be in line to get one on the day of the giveaway. I’m a nerd.

The swag for the day in question happened to be the then manager of Gwinnett, but now temporary skipper for the Atlanta Braves, Brian Snitker bobblehead. Actual picture of the souvenir above.

In addition to that, if you purchased tickets as part of the package, you were also able to get a Gwinnett Braves hat. That’s quadruple the please with bobblehead, hat, taco mac coupon and a freaking baseball game all for ONE LOW PRICE!

The deal got even sweeter on the eve of the game that one of the future stars for the Atlanta Braves was being promoted from AA Rome to AAA Gwinnett. This was turning out to be the best weekend EVER! (yes, this happened a couple weeks ago, but it’s the first opportunity to share my story)
