Had to put the kibosh on my trip to see the new Rangers ballpark. The reason is that there was a lot of labor unrest surrounding this year's baseball season (because of the players lockout). Nobody knew when the season was going to start - fortunately, it only ended up getting delayed a week, but nonetheless not enough people were booking the tour I was going to take, so I had to put off my trip to see Globe Life Field. Again. This is the third year in a row I've had to do that! (I can't go on my own, since there is no mass transit in Arlington, TX where the ballpark is. There is a hotel right next door, but probably way too expensive, plus I don't want to just sit around in a ing hotel room for a week!) But all is not lost, I will be going to Chicago instead. I leave a week from Friday! Going to see three Whitesox games (against my Yankees! ), six Cubs games, and just enjoying the hell out of the city of Chicago.
