I was hoping to have pictures to share today, but my connection is iffy, so there will be nothing of the sort. Sorry for the super-early post, but I'm heading out shortly and will probably be offline for awhile.
For the past few days I've been all over the place - spending the weekend in Cooperstown and Mohawk, New York, Monday in NYC, and yesterday in parts of Jersey and even Delaware on the way to Baltimore. Last night I took in an O's game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. I really liked it, but it's much simpler than I expected. In some ways it feels like it's a decade old (i.e. you can't watch any of the game - other than on television - from the concourses), but it's a clean building and a beautiful place to watch a ballgame.
Once I can upload pictures I will regale you with tales of my magical journey to Cooperstown - which included planes, trains, and automobiles (almost just like the movie) and also included a magical trip to Clifton, New Jersey - which was everything that I'd ever hoped it would be.
Brad Halsley vs. Jason Vargas tonight. It's like watching the future of baseball today.
In case anyone is wondering, although I was raised in Arizona (high school, other formative years, etc.), I'm not much of a Diamondbacks fan. They didn't come into existence until I was away in college, so I kind of missed the whole craze.
I am glad that Steve Finley is gone. I would have hated to have to watch him adjust his cup throughout this series. Seriously - the next time you catch an Angels game (particularly live) - take note of it. The man has issues.
