Return from a road trip

Well, I did something this past weekend that I have wanted to do for a long time. I traveled to Boston to see the Red Sox play the Orioles in Fenway Park. The game was great and I think I am even turning my wife into a baseball fan, at least for games in person. I don’t think she is at the point to watch them on television yet.
Fenway was amazing. I have always wanted to visit and see the Red Sox play there. They didn’t disappoint either, beating the Orioles 13-4. Our seats were okay, they were in full view of the action but some of those old wooden seats that were definitely built for smaller people. I was lucky to get the tickets at all so I am not really complaining.
We drove this trip, which was not bad coming back but I made one slightly wrong turn in New Jersey going up there and it added a lot of time to our trip. We hit the Jersey Turnpike right before quitting time and it was a stop and go experience.
I like road trips though and it was good to see the east coast from the car.
Comments are appreciated.

What a night!

The Orioles game the other night was fantastic. Getting away from the stresses of everyday was nice. I finally got to see a Major League Baseball game with my dad. My sister wasn’t so bad on the trip either.
When we got to Baltimore, we found the stadium and parked. We had about three hours to kill before the game, so we decided to check out the Baltimore Sports Museum that is next to the ballpark. The museum was okay, only there was this rude guy who totally pissed me off in there. When we left, we went down the street a little ways and got something to eat from California Tortilla. As we were eating, a guy came through and went off on the cashier. I was thinking to myself, man are these people in Maryland rude. After we ate though and got back to the ballpark, man was that great. I saw Tuesday night perhaps one of the greatest games of baseball in my life. The star for the Orioles was Corey Patterson, who had a stolen base, two home runs and the game winning catch to help the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 7-5. His catch was featured as the play of the day on our local newscast when I got back home.
What a memory, and what a night!

Summer is almost here

This is a good time of the year for me. Things have slowed down at my job. I have some free time to pursue my interests. I am going to get a lot of reading done this summer. I am also going to do some writing, especially in this Blog.
I am also doing something at the end of this month that I have wanted to do for a long time. I am going to my first Major League Baseball game. My father, younger sister, and I are going up to Baltimore to see the Orioles play the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. This is so exciting to me. It is something that I never got to do growing up. I thought to myself earlier in the year, “What am I waiting for?” If I don’t do this now I may never get the chance to do it. So I took the plunge and ordered the tickets. I am taking my notebook and writing notes throughout the game of the experience. Then I am going to come back and write about it here.
We all need challenges in life. I challenge myself to little things all of the time. As 2005 began I challenged myself to read a million pages in books. I have been keeping track ever since. I have hit every goal along the way that I have set for myself. I am looking forward to knocking quite a few pages off the list this summer. I have a backlog of about 20 books that I have to read so lack of reading material is not a problem.
I have been slowly getting back into my regular television watching habits. With my job, things can get out of hand quickly. A quick list of my favorites listed by night:
Sunday
Law & Order: Criminal Intent
Monday
Prison Break
24
CSI: Miami
Tuesday
NCIS
House
Boston Legal
Wednesday
