I just went down to grab coffee from the breakfast in the Quality/Comfort/Days Inn, wherever we slept last night. Down there I noticed a bunch of kids carrying/hugging stuffed anumals. When we checked in last night about 10pm there was a family of Lions fans bringing in their luggage. It's so fun to see kids on the road, even when they're crying and slamming doors.
When I was a kid we road-tripped in a camper. True gas was less expensive but let's start facing the fact that gas had been uinderpriced for years. Once we accept that we can all hit the road to see our favorite teams.
Have you seen MiLB's Geographical 'List' of Teams? Throw a dart or check out what's near your intended path. With the exception of Mets Triple-A, which is in New Orleans, you probably don't live too far from some level of your favorite team.
Small ballparks are super fun for kids. And they're super affordable. And usually they have food specials. What a great way to get kids interested in what we once referred to as the national pastime. More later.
Where did You go this summer? And where do You plan to go?
