I always find it interesting that anyone who is even rumored to have used PEDs is condemned as a dirty rotten cheater, but Whitey Ford, who admitted to cheating by scuffing baseballs, is acclaimed as a hero and an all-around great guy.

Travelogue: The Calf’s First Twins Game

I had meant to share the story from my time next to the Twins bullpen last week in a Cup of Coffee but hadn't gotten a chance yet. Here are a couple of fun parts of the trip.

The herd and I arrived to the Twins/Indians game last week about an hour before first pitch. We left Buffalo around 7:30am for a 12:10 first pitch. The hope was that the Calf would get a little bit of sleep before the game during the 3.5 hour car trip as his usually nap time falls between 12:10pm and 3:00pm. Naturally, he finally fell asleep when we were about 30 minutes outside of Cleveland. This was not before he learned how to undue his car seat buckle though. Seriously, the calf is 18 months old. How did he figure out how these things work already? It took me about a week and a half before I figured how his car seat works. Anyway, onto the trip. I am going to share a couple of photos. Those who are friends with me on the internet may have seen some of these already but I will share again as I think they add to the story.

Believe it or not I haven't taken the Calf to see a Bisons game yet. For some reason I wanted his first game to be a Twins game. Thinking about it now it probably wasn't the best idea but he responded extremely well to the large crowd.
