It’s been pouring here (am I allowed to miss sunny California for a day?), so there was no baseball. But Friend of the Blog John sent this pic from his vacation in Red Sox Country where there was plenty of sun.
Note his Yankees paraphernalia – including the umbrella. He wanted us to know that the umbrella was a sanctuary for other Yankee fans at the beach and that he became known among the locals as “the Yankee Guy.” I wonder why.
I finally have my date for a trip to Yankee Stadium nailed down: Thursday, August 25th – a day game against the A’s. If anyone else plans to be there, I hope you’ll come say hello. I’ll be sitting out in Swisher country this time, thanks to season tickets holder and my Twitter friend Mark Schwartz (@SchwartzsLaw), who was kind enough to offer up his seats. I’m starting my conversation with Mother Nature right now, because I do not want it to rain on my parade!
