Royalty is going to Chicago, Minneapolis & Milwaukee over Labor Day weekend!


2016 World Series Champions - Chicago Cubs
Here's the game plan:

The King, David Rothenberg aka Swag Man & I are flying to Chicago O'Hare Airport on American Airlines. We leave New York LaGuardia Airport on Friday, September 1st at 7:30AM Eastern Time, we arrive in Chicagoland at 9:09AM Central Time if we're not delayed for any reason. Upon arrival, I'm renting a car from Budget Rent A Car for the weekend. We'll be staying in Chicago for the day. After the doubleheader of baseball we have, we'll be driving towards the Twin Cities so we can be closer. I prefer to avoid any construction delays if possible. After the game in Minneapolis, we're driving to Madison, Wisconsin to spend the night before we continue on to Milwaukee Sunday. After the game there, we'll return to the Second City. We fly back home Sunday night. Our flight departs Chicago O'Hare Airport at 8:30PM Central Time. We're scheduled to land at 11:36PM Eastern Time at LaGuardia Airport if all goes well.    

Friday September 1st Braves at Cubs 1:20PM Central Time

                                     Rays at White Sox 7:10PM Central Time
                              
Saturday September 2nd Royals at Twins 6:10PM Central Time
                                                
Sunday September 3rd Nationals at Brewers 1:10PM Central Time

If you're interested in going or meeting up with us on this exclusive getaway royalty style just let me know so I can arrange to have you join us. We will be meeting some very special guests along the way which will only enhance the experience.  

It's going to be a blast so why not come for a "royal" ride.

Royalty goes to Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore for annual visit!

Toyota Corolla
On Thursday morning, August 3rd, I took public transportation to go out to New Hyde Park which is just into Nassau County on Long Island. That's where the local Avis location is that I like to rent from when I get a great deal. I wound up getting a Toyota Corolla for five days. After I got the car, I proceeded to go back home to pick up my bags so I could finally hit the road again. After doing so, I met up with my pal who we affectionately call the King. He was visiting his mother before he went away for the day. After I picked him up, I drove to Staten Island so I could pick up fellow Stampeder & friend of mine, Paul Sanders. Quite amazingly, he finally got to meet the King for the very first time. I arrived at his house at 1:15PM. He got in & we proceeded to drive down to Baltimore, Maryland. We arrived in the neighborhood of Canton-Fells Point at 4:45PM. We wound up having dinner at Looney's Pub which has been a royal tradition thanks to our friend, Peter Agnew who lives a few blocks away from there. We all enjoyed our pre game meal before we headed over to Oriole Park at Camden Yards which as far as I'm concerned is the best of the modern retro ballparks. As for me, I had their grilled stuffed salmon which came with broccoli & I was able to substitute red skin bliss potatoes for the salad which is what it normally comes with it as you can see. It was delicious. After we finished eating, I drove us all there. I want to personally thank Peter for getting us the tickets & a parking pass which came in handy. As I like to say, teamwork makes the dream work.

Since Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened up in 1992, I've been fortunate to say I've seen at least one Oriole game there every year. It's been a difficult task the last few years for me to maintain that distinction. This season was no different. After exhausting all my options, I decided that August 3rd would be my best chance to extend the streak & keep my annual tradition in tact. The only thing that could prevent me from doing so was mother nature. She tried her very best to put a damper on my plan. Thankfully despite a few rain delays combining for an hour & 42 minutes worth of wasted time, the Orioles were able to get their game against the Detroit Tigers in. The Orioles fell behind 7-0 early. They fought back but their comeback came up short as the game ended just past midnight. Not what I had I mind with a long drive awaiting me. After the game, the King took a Greyhound bus back home & I wound up driving our friend Peter home. Thankfully he only lives a few miles from the ballpark. By the time I got back by the ballpark it was 12:50AM. Paul & I continued on our way towards Dayton, Ohio where we planned to be Friday night.

We wound up driving to Belpre, Ohio which is 320 miles from Baltimore & a short distance from Parkersburg, West Virginia. Paul's brother, Greg lives there. He was kind enough to let Paul & I stay at his house. I was originally planning to arrive there around 4AM. Due to mother nature, we finally pulled onto his driveway at 6:30AM. He was outside waiting for us. I was totally exhausted. We wound up getting some sleep before continuing our the journey to Dayton.

Stay tuned for another special post that will go into further detail on how that day unfolded.

Thank you for reading & following along.

Royalty is hitting the road again to Baltimore, Dayton, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Reading & Washington DC over the first weekend in August!

Here's the game plan:

I'm renting a car from Avis Rent A Car on Thursday August 3rd for five days to start the month of August off in royal fashion.

STAMPeders Meet & Greet Autographs
I'll be driving down to Baltimore, Maryland, Dayton & Cincinnati, Ohio, Pittsburgh & Reading, Pennsylvania & Washington DC to see some Major League & Minor League Baseball games before returning to NYC early Tuesday morning. The centerpiece of this journey will be in Dayton & Cincinnati. Thanks to a gentleman named Tim Parks, the creator & founder of these Baseball Passports, I'm privileged & honored to take part in a large gathering with other people I know & others who I'll finally get to meet & greet in person. This unique get together is referred to as a Stampede. It's where those of us who attend a baseball game prefer to leave our marks in the form of a stamp that validates that we were physically in a ballpark on a particular day when a baseball game was played. I look forward to sharing stories & teaching others how I've done my best to perfect the stamping process. As a result, I've been given the nickname "Stamp Champ". Every stamp has a story, good, bad or indifferent. All our stamps are unique to our own experiences. We all play by our own rules so regardless of what others may think, in our eyes it's done right. The memories we make can be shared with others as time goes on. Being a person who loves to document my whereabouts, I feel this a perfect way to remember all the great times I've had by going to a ballpark. You never know when you're going to see history made. I feel people who have families & young children benefit the most. These different Passport books create a bond for these people to share memories that they can pass on from generation to generation. The same can be said for friends. Anytime you spend at a ballpark always beats a great day at work.               
             
Thursday August 3rd Tigers at Orioles 7:05PM

Friday August 4th Great Lakes Loons at Dayton Dragons 7PM                                  

Saturday August 5th Cardinals at Reds 7:10PM

Sunday August 6th  Padres at Pirates 1:35PM

Monday August 7th Akron Rubber Ducks at Reading Fightin Phils 9:35AM

                                  Marlins at Nationals 7:05PM
