Since Mother's Day is today, my Mom and I went to visit my Grandmother and the rest of my family out in Elmira, NY (actually Horseheads, but few, if any have actually heard of that town).
If you haven't heard of it, its basically located in the middle of nowhere. While there is no internet out there and I couldn't watch the Yankees game (which was probably a good thing from what I hear), it was nice to be able to forget about things and just sit outside to reflect on life.
Since I haven't been able to keep up with the real world, I don't have very much baseball to add. I heard Joba had some issues with his finger and a popped blood vessel, but I hear he is going to pitch today, despite this injury.
Big news though. I am heading to Toronto to see the Yankees play the Jays. I decided last night that I just need to get away and enjoy myself for a change. Baseball is something that makes me happy in life where I feel the most comfortable, so despite the cost and long travel, I am just going for it. I am thrilled to see Halladay and from what I project, I *think* and I hope, that Richmond will be pitching on Thursday. I would love to see the stuff he has in person.
For those of you that read and live in Toronto and go to Jays games, I have a question about the seating. While I have been to games at the Rogers Centre before, I never really have tried moving up before. Are the ushers very strict in letting people move up to closer sections? I really want to see Halladay pitch close up, but the prices of tickets have soared this year for some reason, and I notice they are more expensive when the Yankees are in town.
This trip is costing me a crap load of money, so I would rather not spend as much if I can try to just move closer. From what I can project, I cant assume they have going to have a packed crowd at the Rogers Centre. I could be wrong though.
Any other suggestions you guys might be have would be great.
