So I'm intending to make the long trip to KC for the Friday, 5/10 game versus the Yankees. I only get to do this once or twice a year, and it'll be the first evening game I've ever attended at Kaufmann, and guaranteed the biggest & most excited crowd I've ever experienced there (all my other games have been lightly attended Sunday/weekday afternoons). In addition, this is a nice full-circle as the first time I ever saw the Royals was at Yankee Stadium back in 2002 or 2003. So I expect justice to be served for the loss they absorbed that night. This spring's terrible weather has been rough for us on the farm, and I need a change of scenery and pace.
I want to get tickets very soon, but wondered if any other RRers are going to this game and want to get together? Would be fun to meet one or more of you in person. If so, let me know pretty quick and we can figure out how to do this. Fair warning, I don't have a cell phone, so we'll have to be creative in meeting up. I'll give this a few days to percolate, then either move forward or give up and buy my own single ticket.
I'll probably be bringing some good food from the farm, such as some of the smoked ham we raise, butcher, cure, & smoke ourselves. Probably some of our popcorn, too. Will trade some of that for a good beer or something. Keep in mind, hanging out with me at Kaufmann might get you on Japanese TV, though I won't have any edamame this time.
If this doesn't work, no worries, but it's worth a try.
