hmm go into the game early and watch the team's workout, or free beer. Think I'm gonna have to go with free beer. I'll be there!

Well, I was wondering what I was going to do before the home run derby. Now I have an answer. I'm going to probably be there.

mike, Eno will be there.

Steve, this sure seems like a good reason to extend to a 3-day weekend.

It would actually be extending a 3-day weekend in to a 4-day weekend, since we're coming up on Friday. Even then, I'd do it if it were just me, but I'll have 6 members of my family making the trip and most of them don't have the schedule flexibility that I do, unfortunately.

Next time!

Flying solo, I'd be there. However, it may take a bit to convince the wife... I already pulled the "All Star Game as our vacation" trick off, anything else might be greedy. :P

I'll do my best. Sounds like it'll be fun.

I'm going to at least drink an ounce of beer for every home run. Probably two ounces per.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Trying to figure out how early I would need to leave work from crosstown and 169 to get there, through ASG and normal traffic. .....

This sounds excellent. Thanks John and TwinsDaily for putting this on. My wife and I will be there with metaphorical bells on. Not real ones - that would just be silly.
