I will not be joining everyone in Vegas this weekend, for a few reasons. I really didn’t want to go just Friday night to Sunday night (or Monday morning), and I’ve already got plans for my vacation days this year. Also, I haven’t played much poker lately, and just generally don’t know if I can handle a weekend in Vegas right now. Anyway, I’m sure everyone will manage to have a good time without me. 🙂
Instead, I’m heading to San Diego this weekend, and going to two Mets/Padres games. Saturday night, I’m sitting way up in the nosebleeds, and then Sunday afternoon I’ll be four rows behind the Mets dugout. Looks like I’ll get to see Oliver Perez and Pedro pitch. It’s going to be a scary couple of games. I’ve never been to PETCO Park (all caps? really?) before, so it should be fun. The Mets look like they might have started to turn things around, winning three straight series now. Of course, two of those series were against the Dodgers (mediocre) and the Giants (bad), but one was against the Marlins, who have been pretty good. The Padres are another bad team, so hopefully we can pull out another series there.
I’m looking forward to this. I think I need to get out of Santa Barbara for a weekend right now.
