Welcome to Denver
I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to meet my buddy Ryan Rindler in Denver. I have not seen him in a couple of years and we have a lot of catching up to do. Rindler and I went to high school together back in Michigan. He is one of the smartest men that I know and I am also aware that he will be very uncomfortable with me telling all of you that he is a genius. This is my site however and I get to brag about my smart friends.
I am staying with some of Rindler's friends here in Denver so in addition to being smart, he is now saving me money. I got to Dan and Tal's house in the early afternoon and we hung out on their porch chatting about baseball. I had to make a quick run to the Walgreens to pick up some allergy medication as I was greeted by two large dogs at the door and my eyes and throat do not get along very well with furry four-legged creatures.
After I dealt with my allergies we headed off to a local park where there is live Jazz every Sunday. As soon as we got there the skies opened up and poured rain on the crowd for a solid thirty minutes. This gave me an opportunity to huddle underneath a blanket and get to know my new buddies Dan and Tal in a more intimate setting. After the rain cleared out it turned into an eerily beautiful night scored to soft Jazz music in the background.
Now that I will be traveling with a friend, my off-days may be filled with more adventurous activities. Rindler is not the world's biggest baseball fan so I am really looking forward to getting an outsider's perspective on my crazy baseball summer. He will be with me from Denver through Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco and Oakland.
