Day 31 “90 Year Old Mary”

Today I was going to write about baseball bats, however my plans got changed.  There is a threat of rain in South Florida and I had to change the game I was going to. I wanted to go to Venice, Florida and watch the #1 rated High School team in the nation currently. That game was at 7 pm and my daughter was going to come with me. Well the game was cancelled (thanks Tyler from Ida Baker for tweeting that to me!). Even though, my buddy Todd came through again. He sent me a text message and said he had two tickets to the Red Sox-Cardinals game at 1:05 p.m.  I was thrilled to be able to go to that game, especially on St. Paddy’s Day, the place was a sea of green! I had a great time and was able to meet some more of my friend Bob’s baseball family. “90 year old Mary” was there. I missed her the first couple of times I went to games at JetBlue.  She would be fun to profile but she told me she didn’t want her picture taken. Respectfully, “I understand that Mary.” Her daughter took my card as Mary told me about coming to all the spring training games over the years.  Bob and Dan told me she was 90 years old. In my opinion, “sorry guys, she doesn’t look that old!”  I will refer to her as “70 year old Mary” from now on. She said “83”, I don’t believe her. Besides, someone told me that Mary thought I was handsome, I will take that compliment to the bank!

I didn’t sit with Bob’s crew during the game which are right behind home plate. My seats were behind the Red Sox dugout! I swear when I am given tickets they have been prime seats! I met Anthony from the UK, who I will profile tomorrow, I definitely want to get to Carrera Sports, since Frank and Phil were so patient with me. I want to do the information I provide justice. I didn’t have the time today with all the changes Besides I want to spend some time with my daughter, but she was already shopping down in Naples before I scored the tickets from Todd. I only have a few more days in South Florida and I am going to miss it. Five weeks have gone by way too fast. Also, need to give a shout out to all the great people I met at CrossFit Salvation. All of you welcomed me with open arms and for that I am forever grateful! I am looking forward to getting over to Arizona, since I have never been there before.

Well I will leave it at that! Another great day at the ballpark, itching to get back to doing some more writing, and I will have some more stadiums up very soon. Todd told me has been working on them, along with the promo video!  I needed this writing break to get geared up for the second month of this tour.
