Every year we make Spring Training Baseball one of our “traditions” — something we enjoy doing together on an annual basis if possible.
We watched the Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants.
The best part:
Our friends Abby and Neil went with us!
Immediately after landing, we caught a Cubs/Giants game at Hohokam Park.
(By the way, can you identify these Cubbies?)
We rounded out the evening with dinner and drinks at the hotel bar.
The 4 of us stayed at the Doubletree Hotel (where fans of the Oakland Athletics tend to stay). It was a great hotel.
By the way, what are the odds that 2 music superstars (Ronnie Milsap and Phil Vassar) would both arrive at the exact same time at the Nashville airport for a 7AM flight on Friday, March 4th… and end up standing together right in front of us in line at the security check… and then both take different flights on completely different airlines to 2 different places?
Oh, and that Ronnie Milsap would be in “the fishbowl” (designated place where you can smoke inside the Nashville airport) some 30 minutes later smoking cigarettes at the exact same time that I snapped this picture of Neil & Abby passing time there before our flight?
NOTE: I actually took the picture while trying to spy on Neil & Abby in the the fishbowl — because Neil’s story about the smoking spot in this airport was so hilarious! He said something to the effect of: “The only place you can smoke in the airport is this little room with glass doors, and when you’re in there you feel like you’re on display and everyone who walks by is staring at you — the same way that people stare into a fishbowl!”
As a lifelong traveler, I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Travel Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm SUPER organized and I love to pack! I've lived in 6 different states (Florida, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas) and have visited every other state in the U.S. — except Hawaii. (Can you say bucket list?) I've been on several different cruises, airplanes, and boats in my life and I currently enjoy the outdoors by bicycling, motorcycling, Jeeping, RVing, camping, or just walking my dogs. My favorite "hobby" is riding on the back of our Harley-Davidson Road Glide traveling cross country — which we usually do at least once each year. We even rode from Tennessee to Alaska once! When I'm not on the road, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
