Neither of us got much sleep last night. As you noted, I spent most of the day running errands so didn’t get around to even thinking about packing till after 2200.
Have I mentioned how thrilled I get with getting up at 0 dark 400? At least this time I decided to be willing to spring for long term parking at the airport. Driving was amazing, the roads were simply not that busy. Of course this was still before 0500 so you can imagine that some, but not all of the commuters were on the road. Check-In went smoothly, we checked bags. This time my boarding card said “TSA Pre-check” so that portion of the scramble wasn’t an issue. Except for the person who don’t understand that you have to put your purse on the conveyor belt…
Not surprising, there were a lot of As fans on the plane as well as a scattering of those supporting the Giants with a few other logo items supporting out of Bay Area teams.
Rental car, food stop at The Breakfast Club, stopped at the hotel where they actually let us check in early.
Sloan Field was on the way (well, sort of) so we took in the Cubs vs Diamondbacks game. It is a great park and essentially was sold out (had to hit Stubhub for tickets). From there it was just a short drive to Hohokam Park where we lazed around for a long time before the game. If you ever go to Hohokam and are willing to walk about 8 blocks, there is is free parking next to Finley Park. Just saying.
The As were not at their best. Their new young pitcher lost it at the end of the third inning. His relief managed to give up a home run which is not great if you have inherited two on before walking the first batter you face… making it a six run inning. The two single scores by the As just didn’t cut it.
And of course, I brought a USB 3 cable without the back up drive while not bringing the regular cable. So the pictures will have to wait….
