This will be short and quick! Started my day near Cincinnati, drove to Fort Wayne, then to Chicago, and now I have just pulled into Milwaukee! Saw Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati last night, it was a sold out crowd, St. Louis was in town. Adam Wainwright was impressive for the Cardinals and they beat the Reds 4-0. Today I saw the Fort Wayne TinCaps beat the Dayton Dragons, 14-9. Tomorrow, on schedule to see the Chicago White Sox play but I am changing that game. I will most likely see the Milwaukee Brewers play at Miller Park; but, I would not decide until the last moment, there might be a high school I will want to catch.
I had every intention of spending the night in Chicago, go to the White Sox game and then come to Wisconsin the day after. I even went to one of my favorite places for sushi on Clarke near Wrigley Field. When I finished eating I thought screw it, I’m going home, except I don’t have a place to go home to. So, I just pulled into a Wal-Mart parking lot for the night. My daughter and I are going to hang out some tomorrow, hopefully find her a summer job! We plan on going to the Lakeshore Chinooks game on Thursday night, hopefully she won’t be sick of me by then!
I have all these ideas about promotions I would run if I was in charge of a ball club, my daydreams have gotten out of control! I love thinking about how I would do things differently. I do like some things I saw today at the Fort Wayne game and I made a mental note of why I thought it worked. The Fort Wayne team is called the TinCaps, I know it doesn’t make sense until you realize that Johnny Appleseed is their mascot and he wears a tin cap, which is a tin pan. I thought they were called the TinCups until one nice young lady corrected me after she had a good laugh.
We added a feature to Twitter, Roger will be Tweeting out trivia questions at Noon everyday, then revealing the answer at 5 pm. I will send the person who correctly tweets the answer first a Baseball Buddha sticker, you can only get one sticker every week. I will send the winners the stickers on Tuesday of the following week, you will have to Direct Message me your address on Twitter. I drove a lot today and I am extremely tired so I am going to call it a night!
