Camden Yards | 04/02/08
Last night Jamie and I went to Camden Yards to use the tickets she bought at the law school auction. The drive was only about an hour but by the time we got there at 6:30pm it was maybe -20F. There were lots of home runs (including one by former Cub Cliff Floyd and future Cub Brian Roberts) and since it was populated as well as your typical not-playing-the-Cubs White Sox game (had we not been there they probably wouldn't have even announced the attendance) all the foul balls were actually attainable. Unfortunately none were hit near us (or *at* us in Steve's case). We had to leave after the sixth inning because the temperature had dropped to about -400 F (plus the wind chill) and the ushers were starting to drop dead around us from hypothermia. See our misery here.
I practiced guitar for a good 90 minutes today working on my tone and I can say with complete honesty I do not hear a single bit off difference. I can play more evenly between my right-hand fingers which is good though. If these were bass lessons I'd probably already have enough knowledge to go on tour.
