The Cardinals had a welcome off-day today. Welcome to me anyway. I’m not sure how I would have gotten packed otherwise. Packed?, you say. Yes, packed.
Thus far, I have been to two exhibition games, seven Triple-A games, one Double-A game and two college games. This weekend, I break into the majors with a trip to San Francisco to see the Cardinals play the Giants.
I started contemplating this trip last summer as I fell into the habit of tuning in the Giants game at bedtime and falling asleep to the sounds of AT&T Park. Tomorrow it comes to fruition. Both teams have great pitching, cold bats and a Molina behind the plate. In addition there are sailboats practically in the outfield. I could not ask for more.
Except for maybe one clear day to see the Golden Gate Bridge. I guess there is always one more thing. Or, five. I can think of five more things I would like to put in my suitcase, but I’m determined to carry-on only.
Love the Cardinals. Love the Giants. Love great catchers. Love Baseball. Love Sailboats. Love Waterfronts. I may not leave my heart there, but it sure is looking forward to the trip.
