Tour Guide Needed

When I go to Cleveland I will be shown around by Matt Van Wormer who writes for www.didthetribewinlastnight.com. We will be eating lunch before the game a restaurant that was featured on Man Vs Food, arriving at the park a few hours before game time to check things out, and sitting in the “Social Media Suite”. It’s shaping up to be an amazing once in a lifetime experience. I will tell you all about it once I am in…

The One, The Only: Chuck Booth

When I first thought about chasing this dream I did a Google search for ball park guides.  I stumbled across www.ballparkchasers.com.  I joined the site and sent a message to Craig B.

iPhone Apps

What are some good iPhone apps?  I’m looking for good travel and restaurant apps.  I currently have “groupon”, “Orbitz Hotels”, “Hotel Tonight” “Hotels.com”, “Stubhub”, “Fastfood”.  If you have an iPhone I also recommend the “Viggle” app.  It’s this app where you tap the screen and it listens to whatever tv show you’re watching and gives you point for “checking in”.  You can redeem these point for giftcards for websites such as Amazon, iTunes, and Travelocity.  I’m saving all my points up…

Collecting Baseball Cards

Does anybody out there still collect baseball cards?  My grandfather collected baseball cards for me and my cousins.  He started from our birth year until he passed away.  For me he started in 1985.  It was when baseball cards were produced like crazy.  To my knowledge there are not too many “rare” cards from the late 1980’s.  I collected cards on my own when I was a kid as well.  Every once in a while my dad would give me some money and take me to the card shop and I would buy as many packs…

Random trip to Chicago

I decided to go out to Chicago on the weekend of March 10th-11th.  I wanted to go for the entire weekend but I had a previous engagement for that Friday the 9th.  I had never been on a commuter train before so I decided to take the Amtrak from Ann Arbor to Chicago.  Round trip the ticket cost me about $70.  At first I was I thought it was pretty cool to be on a train.  The only trains I had been on before were subway cars in NYC, Washington DC, and…

Where to stay, eat, and what to see?

I recently got an email from columnist Matthew Van Wormer who writes for didtribewinlastnight.com.  He asked me if he could ask me a few questions and feature me as the Fan of the Week on his site.  I happily obliged and a few days later answered his questions that he sent me.  I will be featured on didthetribewinlastnight.com a week from today, Friday, March 9th.  A few days later I received an email from the co-founder of stadiumjourney.com Paul Sweeny asking me if he could ask…
