I spent the week doing business in Indianapolis and Louisiville. I’m definitely a bigger fan of Indianapolis. Some big things happened while I was out of town wondering why you can seemingly add bacon and cheese to any dish on an Indianapolis menu for 75 cents. Or why there seemed to be a guy in every restroom in Louisville that made me pay him a dollar to sling a paper towel over my shoulder to wipe my hands with.
I’d much rather have been in my own friendly confines writing about baseball.

Other than that, I’m going to spend my weekend trying to get over a monster sinus infection, reading Scott Raab’s Whore of Akron book about Lebron James, and playing the first non-sports game I’ve ever owned for the Playstation 3, Skyrim.
I’ll be checking in here to do some scribblings most likely, but everyone enjoy your weekend in the meantime.
