This is going to be a road trip of epic proportions. Is that cheesy enough?
January 6th. The Epiphany, the day the Baseball Writers of America may or may not have an epiphany and do the right thing.
What am I talking about? The possible induction of the greatest shortstop in Reds history (sorry, Davey, you're number two, we love you!) into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. And we're gonna be there.
Hall of Fame weekend starts July 23, 2010. I'm organizing a group trip asap, meaning we stay in same hotel, hang out, etc. We're gonna have to stay outside of Cooperstown, of course, because they have limited accommodations and I'm sure they're already booked, but I'll try to get as close as possible. I want to organize vans to take us up there and am going to need drivers. Details will be worked out later, of course, but hotel reservations will need to be made soon after Jan 6 if things go our way.
Read about HOF weekend here.
Of course, we may not get the chance this year. It will certainly be close. If not, we'll have to postpone and do this every year until we get justice.
So - who's in? I need to gage interest so I can plan accordingly.
