Plans are still somewhat up in the air, but it’s looking increasingly likely that I’ll be visiting Denver again from October 28-30. It will be essentially a business trip, and it’ll suck to be away from Becky on my birthday, but on the bright side, I’ll be in Denver on the evenings when Game 4 and, if necessary, Game 5 of the World Series are being played there. Of course, I hope I’ll be rooting against the Rockies, but if the Indians do manage to close out the ALCS against the Red Sox, then I’ll be root, root, rooting for the home team. Either way, although I don’t expect to go to any games, it’ll be fun to be in town while they’re going on. Kristy and V live right downtown, less than a mile from Coors Field and in the midst of a central strip with tons of bars and such.
Then, next month, Becky and I will be going to a pair of Tennessee basketball games: the men’s home opener against Temple on November 9, and the Lady Vols’ showdown with Texas on November 18. There will be bigger games during the SEC season, of course, but we wanted to make it out to Thompson-Boling Arena before the baby comes. Anyway, the tickets came in the mail yesterday and today, and I’ve added the games to my countdown sidebar at left (along with my birthday — dunno why I wasn’t counting down to that before!).
Speaking of games, Jay and I may be going to a UT football game before the season is out — probably either South Carolina on October 27 or Arkansas on November 10. But that’s still up in the air as well.
More immediately, next Thursday, Becky and I are going to the WDVX Birthday Party at the Bijou Theater. So that should be fun. And on Tuesday, we start taking a birthing/baby class, where we get to learn all about, uh, birthing and babies and stuff.
So yeah. Lots of stuff to look forward to!
P.S. Breaking news: Shannon got a puppy! AWW!
UPDATE: Speaking of the Rockies, and of the SHA girls, Kristy was at Coors Field when Colorado won the pennant Monday night. She sent me a cell-phone photo earlier today:
