Hello my readers.
I am just letting you know that starting tomorrow I will be on vacation. It has been a grind of a season up to this point, and seven days of relaxing in the Florida sun should do me some good. I will be attending a Rays game on Monday night against the Reds, so expect a review of Tropicana Stadium along with pictures on my return.
Thank you for your understanding….
And please – ABSOLUTELY NO – rioting, looting or mass sacrifices should be committed in my absence !!!!!
And with that said…. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!

I have just gotten word that Mo Vaughn will be in Tampa looking for me – but don’t worry , there are many Denny’s outposts down there so I am sure I will be safe !
