Heading Out West

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be heading out to California, where I will be seeing the Twins play in Oakland a couple times. The trip seemed like a little more fun early in the season when I planned it, but I will have to make due going to watch the pathetic Twins most likely get their asses kicked all over the place by an Athletics team that has become FAR superior despite the fact that their roster is not as talented. And I most likely will have to live through the abuse that the A's fans unload on me in my Twins jersey and cap as our hometown boys post sticks and doughnuts on the scoreboard. Ah well, at least it's not the Metrodome. I've never seen a game in Oakland's stadium (formerly Network Associates Coliseum, I believe it is now called McAfee) so it should be a fun experience. I'm not sure if I'm going to have internet access out there, but I'm hoping that I will so I can post about the experience on my posting days of Friday and Sunday. If I can't, I will recap the whole thing when I get back.

Anyway, I will be busy packing tonight so I most likely won't have time to post about the game, in which Brad Radke and the Twins face Joel Pineiro in an attempt to leave Seattle without being swept. Unless this game particularly infuriates me, I don't think I'll be making time to post about it.
