Greetings from Gate 12

Good evening from the Bobby Grich International Airport and Spray-Tan Salon here in Orange County. We’re waiting for a red-eye flight home via Atlanta.

(Attention accountants at the Journal News, I’m coming home on Delta via Atlanta because it saved lots of money. Please keep that in mind.)

I will not be covering the All-Star Game this year and I’m fine with that. Covering the game last year was like covering two of them anyway and I’ve seen all of St. Louis I care to see at this point. I’m going to head out on a little vacation and see my family, read a book and have a beer or two while sitting in the sun.

This job isn’t digging ditches by any means. It’s a lot of fun, actually. But time away is good no matter what you do.

The blog will soldier on, albeit not quite as frequently for a few days. I’m not covering a game again until a week from today. But there will be a post or two every day. That’s the plan at least.

The next few months are going to be busy and a lot of fun. What is better for baseball fans than a pennant race? The Yankees were playing catch-up by this time last season and now they’re right in the thick of it.

Anyway, they’re calling the flight and some sleep awaits. Catch you tomorrow.
