The 2011 Fantasy Camp get together was held today at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, and I drove over in the morning for the meeting. I should have known right away that the day would not go super smoothly, as there was some kind of race going on there at around the same time as I was arriving, so there was much traffic and pedestrians.
But at least the meeting and batting practice session went pretty well. Teke and Steve Blass were very amusing, and Joe was very friendly and informative. (I forgot to ask Steve if we could pre-pay our fines.) I guess that for some reason, we were only able to use two cages for the whole group instead of four, which meant that there were a lot of people waiting to use only two cages. As a result, I kind of fought my way to the front of the queue so that I could get in my cuts and take off, since I had a reasonably long drive to get back home.
And then, of course, when I was leaving there was a tremendous line in the line waiting to pay for their garage parking tickets. And then, after getting through that line, there was some kind of snafu with the two exits for the garage. And then, the road construction on I-79 is always messed up hugely.
