Well, Brew Crew Ball, I’ve decided to take a little trip. The Hops are in the midst of a long road trip to Boston, Baltimore, Detroit, and Harlem. They’re back in Cream City next weekend, though, and they’ve got series to play against Kansas City, Baltimore again, and the archrival Missouri Bluebirds. And I kind of figured that the best way to continue exploring that whole world was to spend some serious time in it. I’ve gone to a few games, and wandered around a little, but there are so many things I haven’t been able to do. I’d like to go to a Cream City restaurant. I’d like to check out the museums. I’m dying to know if they ever had an equivalent to Gertie the Duck. Or if they ever had an equivalent to World War II, for that matter. And I’d love to hop on a bus or a train or into a cab and check out some other city over there. Madison, perhaps, or whatever their equivalent is.
So I’m going. I plan on hanging around at Schlitz for two or three games, starting next Sunday. Then after that, who knows? I’ll have to get back over there eventually, as the wormhole mouth outside of the press box is my only ticket back. And I can’t stay for too long, or my sister will start to worry. But five days or so? That seems reasonable.
Wish me luck, everybody! See ya on the other side.
