I think I have hit the wall! Today was a tough day and it was the first day that I wanted to be home. I felt lonely wishing I had someone with me. I got down to Busch Stadium rather early, was hoping to find a Starbucks close by. I was kind of shocked that so many people were there three hours before game time. I didn’t find a Starbucks and was unable to work on my post for today. I have a good one too! KC Super Fan Chris! I will profile him soon. I just drove four hours, checked into a hotel and I need a shave! I am missing my daughter who is home from college for the summer. Sunday nights’ she and I would usually hang out, watch a movie and I felt like doing that. So, I am a little down at the moment and have a case of the Sunday night “heebee jeebees”. This will pass and I need to grind this out for a little bit. I knew this would happen at some point, just surprised that it has taken this long. Ball players hit the proverbial “wall” once in awhile during the season. The constant pressure and the travel wears you out. I can say that the constant travel has done me in. Since I am in a different place every day, ‘the grind’ can be very stressful.
Anyway, I met three really cool dudes today at the game. They are “crazy’ about the game of baseball and they dig deep into the history of the game. I gave them my card in hopes they keep in contact. I am learning a lot about the history and I love it. I want to get a group of people I meet along the way to get together and discuss ‘history’ at some point. I have a high school game tomorrow in a small town in Kentucky, which I’m looking forward to.
St. Louis versus Atlanta today was my 100th game since I started this journey! The Cardinals gave up two runs in the top of the ninth losing to the Braves, 6-5! This is all I am posting. Please bare with me, I am struggling a little bit with writers block, also.

John don’t worry about it. You’re doing great, and had an amazing experience seeing Busch Stadium which after Fenway and Wrigley may be the best or most passionate fan base in baseball. We all run into writers block occasionally. Talk soon, keep your head up and keep up the great work. Best wishes. Paul
