Went to Connecticut this past weekend to hang out with my friend Sean. (Not only is he the guy who was with me at Camden Yards the day I snagged my 100th lifetime game ball, but he’s also written a fantastic/suspenseful baseball-themed novel called SEAMS.)
Highlights of the weekend included:
1. Getting lost in a gigantic corn maze.
2. Sleeping in a room that had a Cal Ripken shrine.
3. Observing Sean’s beautiful (and at times disturbing) relationship with Hudson, his three-year-old French bulldog.
4. Playing baseball both days and hitting monstrous fungos over Sean’s head.
And, of course, eating Thai food during Game 2 of the ALCS and watching Manny Ramirez break the all-time post-season home run record. (Good thing he didn’t hit it onto Lansdowne Street. It would’ve taken two lifetimes to forgive myself for not being there.)
