So every trip I do is booked around the MLB schedule (this annoys my wife, but are you kidding me? Of course I am going to consult the schedules). However, a trip I will be doing in July, well, I don't wanna call it a "Wasted Trip", but it sure is a big ole bummer. See, my nephew Sean is getting married to his amazing fiance Nicole on July 23rd in Mystic, CT. My brothers kids are as close as I will ever come to having kids, so when Sean called me to tell me he was getting married and asked me to be there, I of course told him I would be, wouldn't miss it! Let me also say that Nicole is a big Red Sox fan, just another reason to love her. Yet, when they chose the 23rd for their wedding... not a single MLB schedule was consulted! ;) I mean seriously, think about it. 1st, the Red Sox are not in Boston that weekend, yet Mystic is only 90 mins away. No, the Sox are on the road in... SEATTLE!!!! That's only 60 mins away from home for me... yet I will be in Mystic, several thousands of miles away! UGH! ;) Not only are the Sox in Seattle, they are here for a 4 game set! 4 GAMES!! 2nd, of the possible 6 stadiums (teams) I could catch a game at, I can only see a most 2, cause everyone else is on the road as well for the time we'll be back there! At that I would have to go back East a day early to catch an Orioles game to make it 2. The other one is Yankee Stadium... yeah, no question there. I do have a shot at a Nat's game the next week, but there's a good chance that wont happen.
SO... holy cow! Who in their right minds doesn't consult the official MLB schedule before planning anything these days, ya know??? lol :)
Man whatta bummer... flying clear across country for 1, maybe 2, possibly 3 games at best. That sucks! Then again, I guess I am flying back there for my nephews wedding, not the games, huh?
