I’m really starting to think that my trip to Baltimore to see the Orioles is never going to happen. The fates are against it. After being mugged two blocks from the stadium last year, causing me to miss the game, I vowed to go back. My plans to do so, however, keep hitting snags.
I said if the ALCS was an alphabet one, which I fully thought it would be, I would go to Baltimore to see one of the games. Clearly, that didn’t happen as neither the A’s or the O’s made it past the ALDS. Strike two.
This season, I saw the A’s were going to be there on a weekend in August and thought Perfect! It’s the A’s only trip to Baltimore this season, so it’s that weekend, or nothing. Well, the hands of fate decided to crash that party too. For some reason, the Baltimore Orioles have decided to make most of the Saturday home games start at 4:05. Which would be fine, if I wasn’t flying in from the West Coast (the better coast). You see, the earliest flight out is at 6:05 am and arrives in Baltimore at 4:10 pm. By the time I get to the hotel, checked in and to the game, it is easily 5 pm. Not good. The last time I was running late to an Orioles game, it didn’t end well. So now I’m back at the drawing board trying to figure out what to do.
Mark my words, it will happen! I will find a way.
