Paw Sox Grand Slam, September 3, 2011

One swing, four runs, grand slam.

The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, in a nutshell.

Greenwich Cove

Yes, I fully intend on saying everything there is to say about Rhode Island in one lousy blog post.

Just kidding.

I spent three nights in Rhode Island and it’d be impossible for me to tell you everything that I did – honestly, there’s a lot more to Rhode Island than I […]

I’m high: Elevation 5,280 Feet

Sign at visiting team entrance.

My decision to visit my family in the mile high city of Denver was a rather spur of the moment decision—taking advantage of the long Easter weekend (and neatly avoiding Closed Germany).

Coming with such short notice I didn’t really have a chance to develop a to-do list. If […]

Mountains, Smountains… I came to see the Rockies!

Time to celebrate!

Thursday was a fine first day in the New World: I woke up at 3:30, local time, ready to roll. My main plan for the day: watching the Milwaukee Brewers lose to the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

My wish came true.

Although, in the process, I froze myself: My father, […]

Coney Island & Cyclones

For years I’ve read about family fun out at Coney Island, yet I’ve never made the trek out there.

That changed yesterday when I headed out to see the Brooklyn Cyclones’ season opener.

At the conclusion of my meeting yesterday, in which I think progress was made on some important issues, I got my hair […]

Rox ‘n Sox

Tomorrow evening (well, late night for me), the Colorado Rockies will take to the field for the first time, hoping to win the World Series.

Anybody who knows me knows that I am not an athlete. At best I am an athletic supporter. The kind that likes to sit in the stands and watch attractive […]

Ain’t Germany

I was just looking at the Indy Indians team website–and the promotions for the Friday, June 8th home game at Victory Field:

Boy Scouts across Indiana participate in a post-game sleepover on the field. Sponsored by Coors Light & U.S. Army

Coors Light?

Now while this doesn’t personally offend me, one has to wonder what […]

Last Day

Today is my last day in the States for a brief spell—so I am kind of in a melancholy mood.

My time here has not really gone as planned. I’d noticed that the Indianapolis Indians were scheduled to play a game Wednesday afternoon, so I planned accordingly. Unfortunately the weather conspired against me. I arrived […]


Today I will be heading up to IUPUI to do some work and then enjoying a baseball game in the evening with my friend Kevin. Assuming it doesn’t rain in Indy.

It’s raining here in Evansville.

I’m also planning to eat at Yats.


Wizard Follow-Up

Before I forget–you know how at baseball games there are always these prizes they announce but nobody ever seems to win? Well, as I told you before, the guy sitting next to us won Baseball Bingo, but my father also won — he won coffee and $10 in gift certificates from Fort Wayne’s Higer Grounds […]
