Baseball 2011 Day 1
Dad and I take a baseball trip every year. This year consisted of Milwaukee and the two Chicago stadiums. The first day, we flew from Atlanta to Chicago and took a rental car to a day game in Milwaukee.
Lesson number one from the trip: Don't book a 5:30 a.m. flight because you'll be waking up at 2:30 a.m. to make it to the airport in time. Doesn't make it for a very fun game. We were so tired, it was tough to enjoy.
Loved Milwaukee though. They have a college football atmosphere with many tailgate parties. The smell of brats was everywhere.
Miller Park is also the most unique park I've ever seen. The retractable roof is an architectural plus to the venue.
I also like the slide that the Brewer's mascot goes down at every home run. He used to slide into a beer mug, but now he just slides onto a platform.
It was a tiring day, but a good day.
