Can of Corn: Dream Roadtrip


Welcome back everyone, I'd like to thank you all for taking a break from Pokemon GO to read this post, it really is appreciated.... 

Okie dokie! I'm just the co-host, P.J. is the brains behind the operation, so here are the rules guidelines for Can of Corn!
  • Write about baseball using the theme (or not) on the dates provided (or thereabout) from March-October. Just make it baseball!
  • Use the button in your post somewhere (at the end or whatever) and link back to me + P.J. 
  • Go to one of our blogs the day this comes up (or thereafter) and linkup! The linkup will be "live" for a week after the date.
  • Visit other blogs, read, comment, and make some new baseball pals!
  • Have a cold beer (because let's be real, anything I'm involved in involves a cold beer...)
Can of Corn 2016 - Dates
Today we're talking road trips! I'm about 5050 on road trips. Sometimes I really dig them, other times I'm literally the worst to take on them because I literally have to pee all the time. It's ridiculous. ANYWAYS. I'm going in the direction of dream baseball trip, first of all I'm going on a pretty legit trip next weekend: hitting Camden Yards, whatever the gNats call their ballpark, and there's even talk of a road trip to Pittsburgh.... So in one little trip I'm all but doubling how many parks I've been to ever!

I really would like to win the lottery and be able to take a summer and hit all of the parks in one trip, but you know I probably have the right amount of luck for that lotto ticket. I'd have to prioritize. My first stops would definitely be Fenway and Wrigley. Hands. Down. Next, I'd really like to see the Rockies and that terrifying sculpture in Miami just to say I'd been there. And Seattle, because. Seattle Grace. duh.

Where do you want to go on your baseball roadtrip? Wanna pick me up on the way? I promise to not drink any water before we get in the car. Pinky promise!

Can of Corn: Promotions

I have a really funny story about how I was worried about officially posting something about my new house, then an hour after I instagrammed  a picture of my mailbox yesterday I got an email from the mortgage people. That's a story for the day after everything is actually official. (because now I'm extra superstitious.) Anyways, it's time for the Can of Corn linkup!

PROMOTIONS. Guys, that's what I miss most about my MiLB times. Yesterday facebook told me it had officially been too many years since we had a promotion for the Roller Derby + all dressed up like we were in the roller derby (my name was Delta SLAMMA' -- I still have the t-shirt) I also am a huge sucker for puns (see: me insisting on a May the 4th Be With You Star Wars night for every team I worked for)
I also really dig the promotions that incorporate a non-baseball activity into the day, like a pre-game 5K or post game concerts because then I can drag my non-baseball people to things with me, duh. 

What are your favorite promotions? Or even better what promotions would you like to see? you're welcome in advance, baseball folks.

Can of Corn: Favorite Ballparks

I know I've said it before, but I swear I'm about to get really back into the blog-o-sphere, because #kaseybuysahouse IS HAPPENING. Until I get all of that sorted out, I will probably be shady still. HOWEVER. You can count on me for the monthly baseball linkup no matter what! This month we're talking ballparks!

Okie dokie! I'm just the co-host, P.J. is the brains behind the operation, so here are the rules guidelines for Can of Corn!

NOW BALLPARKS. I know we've covered that my experience in major league parks is limited to four (er five if you count Atlanta Fulton County and Turner Field as separate...) : Turner Field, AT&T, Chase Field, and whatever they're calling the Texas Rangers' park these days.. Nothing really stood out to me about Ranger ballpark, sorry Texas... I really liked the roof at Chase (I had a chance to see the ballpark with the roof open AND closed. like, best of both worlds man.) Even though it was frigid, I loved that the bay is right behind the outfield at AT&T. OBVIOUSLY I have some deep loyalty to the Ted. 

HOWEVER! I am going to add two, yes two, new ballparks to my list (er. check them off my list?) at the end of July! I'm going to visit Jen and catching an O's game AND a gNats game! Two birds, one plane ticket. SO it happens to fall two weeks after we talk about our dream baseball road trips, but you know I won't be doing that much driving anyways. 

I have been to my fair share of MiLB parks -- but my favorite MiLB park has most to do with the experiences there rather than the ballpark itself. not to say a lot of my blood, sweat, and tears aren't a part of that park now. I'd still pick Recreation Park or whatever they're calling the park that the Rawhide play in now. That was my first job out of college, my first time living more than two hours from my parents. My first time on my own. There were a lot of ups and downs but man did I love it. 

NOW it's your turn! What are your favorite ballparks? I know you're surprised that I haven't been to many, being the biggest baseball fan you know, but I'm working on it.
