I try to make it to at least one Diamondbacks game per year with my daughter. With only a week remaining before she heads to Orlando for an internship with Disney, the options were growing pretty slim. With the Phillies and Bryce Harper in town, we finally had our date and my wife joined us. While the DBacks are technically in the hunt for the … Continue reading Phillies vs DBacks
With football season back in full swing, we planned a trip to catch Penn State playing at Pittsburgh – an in-state rivalry that is quickly coming up on another hiatus. They will play one more time next year in Happy Valley, closing out the rivalry with the 100th meeting between the two programs. After next year, there are no other games scheduled between the two. … Continue reading Rustbelt Roadtrip – PNC Park!
What took me so long to visit AT&T Park in San Francisco? I’ve visited the city dozens of times over the last 17 years since it opened as PacBell Park in April 2000, but for some reason, I’ve never been able to catch a game.

Watching the Farmers Open today reminded me of the time I went to the US Open at Torrey in 2008 with my buddy James. This was my 2nd US Open, with the first being in 1998 at the Olympic Club outside of San Francisco. We scored practice rounds tickets for Wednesday and the opening round on Thursday, so we thought we’d make the quick trip … Continue reading Tiger’s Last Major? – 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines

With the Dodgers in town for Spring Training, it … Continue reading A Night with Tommy Lasorda!
My youngest daughter, Emilee, just started her Freshman year of High School. Of course, she goes to a different school than her older sister, Jessica. It didn’t take long for a conflict to arise. Jessica’s high school, Xavier, hosts an annual Father/Daughter night out at the Diamondbacks. We’ve attended for the past two years. This year, it was the same night as Emilee’s school’s largest … Continue reading Father/Daughter Time!
A few weeks ago, one of my business partners, GCS, and I were looking to host an event in NYC. After searching around, we found out that the Yankees were hosting a make-up game against the Twins, on Monday, Sept 19th at 1pm. Since it was a make-up game with a team that is well out of the playoffs, the prices for Suites were very … Continue reading A Suite, Historic Experience at Yankee Stadium!
