So here it is January 1, 2008 FINALLY...it's here. And what am I doing?? trying to decide on what baseball trips I'm going to get to make this year. BIG surprise I know. But unlike last year...I had this job which got me free flights and hotel points....so I have been able to take these long week vacations for free...well other than beer and food. Oh and baseball tickets. SO back to baseball...oh i guess I never left it huh? Well anyway...I have plans for Spring Training but it's looking like there is no one for me to share a room with so I may have to forgo this trip this year. I am trying to be frugal and pay off some debts. Anyway....my good buddy blogger and SGer, Ted, is making his first Trek to Fenway this year for his birthday in May and I would really like to be there. So although I usually do the mid-summer vacation to Boston....I may have to do it early and do just a quick weekend since I won't have earned vacation time or much of it. I can't be sad cos I've had a great 4 last years in vacations in Boston. And on the other hand, getting to see Ted's face light up and eyes well up when he walks up to see the Green Monster will be well worth it. It will be another one of those crashcourses into Fenway and another reason to hold a SG-fest. So I think I've made up my mind....I have to in order to buy the tickets early ya know. So Ted get ready to see this
with your own eyes and not on the television. But I have to warn you about the noise here. It gets REALLY LOUD!! And I know you think I pale in comparison with Rakes....but you have NOT attended a game with me and my flag at Fenway. Your only hope is that Beckett and Timlin do not pitch.
The year Two thousand and eight is going to be Monumental for you. And I want to be there.
