DiamondGirl's article the other day has me thinking. If had the time, the money or, most importantly, actually believed the world was ending on Saturday. What would I do these final days? After careful planning here is my itinerary before "the Rapture" hits on Saturday.
Today: I head up to Cooperstown. Sure, I've been there once before. It was a great trip with my family when I was 12. Now that I'm older many the icons that I grew up idolizing are there now like Schmidt, Carlton, Whitey and Harry. Not to mention Gwynn, Ripkin, Sandberg and Ozzie Smith. Then I'd hop on a plane to Seattle. I've always wanted to see a game at Safeco Field. The Mariners take on the Angels. Jared Weaver is pitching, but more importantly Ichiro plays for the M's. I've never seen him play live and there is no player, not currently on the Phillies, I'd rather see in a Phillies uniform. If the world does end on Saturday, he'd have his lowest batting average of his career at .302!
See ya on the other side!
p.s. Feel free to share your bucket list so I have something to read on the plane rides
