I haven’t written many blog entries this season, but I have a great excuse. Ready to hear it? I’ve become OBSESSED with my YouTube channel, and I’ve uploaded 39 videos from MLB stadiums since Opening Day. Here they are in a nifty playlist. I’ve been to 62 games so far this season at 24 stadiums (not counting Minor League Baseball), so it looks like I’ll hit up all 30. The remaining half-dozen are:
1) AT&T Park
2) Oakland Coliseum
3) PETCO Park
4) Kauffman Stadium
5) Globe Life Park
6) Minute Maid Park
My life is bonkers right now. For the last three months, I’ve been on the road more than I’ve been home, and when I *am* home, I find myself catching up on stuff from the last trip while trying to prepare for the next one . . . while trying to find time for everyone/everything that gets neglected when I’m gone. My longest trip this season has been 18 days. Just recently I was gone for nine days (including stops in Detroit, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Miami for the All-Star stuff). Now I’m home for four days before heading back out on the road. My next trip is being cut short so that I can fly home to be filmed by HBO. I can’t yet make plans for August because Adrian Beltre is 20 hits away from 3,000, and I want to be there for it (wherever “there” turns out to be). After that I need to figure out when and where I’m going to snag my 10,000th baseball; I’m currently 149 away.
If you’ve contacted me through email, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube and I haven’t responded, please don’t be offended. I don’t have an assistant looking at all that stuff and responding for me. If you hear from me, it’s really me, but there’s just not time to respond to everyone . . . because I’m too busy creating content for everyone to enjoy. See how that works? Yeah.
Anyway, it’s late and I’m exhausted. I got home several hours ago from Citi Field. Now it’s 3:52am as I sit here typing this. Bedtime! More soon (or at least soon-ish).
