Here's the game plan:
I'm renting a car from Avis on Friday morning for the weekend.
be driving up North of the Border to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada,
Buffalo, Erie, Pennsylvania & Cleveland, Ohio to see my first ever
Canadian Football League game, NHL & OHL hockey & a NFL game
before returning to NYC late Sunday
night/Monday morning. My pal Mike Carroll aka Sabre Mike as we call him
is joining me. He has asked me a number of times the last few years to take him to see his
favorite teams, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats & the Buffalo Sabres play.
Knowing full well, the World Series will be going on in a National
League ballpark that weekend, I decided that this should be the year of the Cubs. I'm
counting on them to not let me down. Wishful thinking I know. It may be
now or never for them. We shall wait & see. With that being said, I
told Mike that I have a trip in the works that's perfect for him. When I told him,
he was literally in heaven. His birthday is on November 12th. He'll be
celebrating a little earlier this year he said. In addition, I plan to see my
pals Andrew Kulyk & Peter Farrell aka USRT who live in Buffalo.
They'll be joining us the first half of the getaway along with another
roadtripper, Chris Boyes who we all know who's coming to visit from England
that weekend to see an array of sporting events including the Buffalo
Bills who he's a fan of. The timing couldn't be more perfect in that
regard. Last but definitely not least, I plan to reunite with Nadia
Koyratty who I met last year when I went on the Free Royal Tour of London. She's now living in Buffalo while she pursues her PHD at the University of Buffalo. She's not really into sports but I plan to have her join us for
breakfast Saturday morning at the Royal Restaurant which is nearby in the Buffalo area.
Friday October 28th Edmonton Eskimos at Hamilton Tiger-Cats 7PM
Saturday October 29th Panthers at Sabres 1PM
Saginaw Spirit at Erie Otters 7PM
Sunday October 30th Jets at Browns 1PM
you're interested in going on this exclusive getaway royalty style just
let me know so I can arrange to have you join Mike & I as well as the
rest of the very special guests we're meeting along the way.
It's going to be a blast so why not come for a "royal" ride.
Thank you for reading and following along.
