I’ll get into this sometime in-depth, but I like the idea of a sports fan’s checklist – those events, moments, highlights that any fan should aim to do. A scavenger hunt of fandom, you might say. For example, a couple of years ago, the Royals and Indians were rained out. Luckily for me, I was off the next day and they’d rescheduled the previous game as a double-header. So check “Attend a Double-Header” to the list.
I’m still waiting on the “Catch a Foul Ball” part, but there’s time.
The reason I bring it up is because this Saturday, June 5th, I get to check off something I hadn’t figured I’d have a chance to ever do. Thanks to Sunflower Broadband in Lawrence, who held a “#1 Royals fan” contest, I’ll be throwing out the first pitch before the Tigers/Royals game.
It’s also Bret Saberhagen bobblehead night.
So if anyone wants to see a blogger embarrass themselves in front of 15-20 thousand, this is a good time to do it. I’m hoping like hell I don’t bury that thing.
