By the time this post goes live on my blog, I’ll already have Worthington in my rear-view window.
I’m not leaving for good, but rather for the weekend.
And what a weekend it’s going to be.
I’m meeting one of my best friends — a former college roommate — this weekend for what’s going to be a fun time.
I haven’t seen him in a long time — too long actually — so when I had a free weekend, I suggested we get together.
He lives in Ames, Iowa, which isn’t too far of a drive.
My friend, Mark, suggested he could come to Worthington. I suggested I could come to Ames. Neither of us were too excited about staying in our hometown. He can do Ames stuff any time he wants. I can do Worthington stuff any time I want.
So I suggested a trip to Kansas City. I very much enjoy KC, and the Royals are home this weekend. I love baseball games and I love watching the Royals play at home.
But it would be a three-hour drive or him and a six-hour trip for me — not idea.
Mark came up with another idea — Minneapolis. He hasn’t been to Target Field yet and the drive is similar for both of us.
We like to see two games when we take trips, so we have tickets for Saturday’s game and Sunday’s game.
They are both afternoon games, which leaves us Saturday night with nothing to do.
As a shot in the dark, I decided to see if the Timberwolves were at home. Sure enough, they are. Of course, Kevin Love may not play, but they are playing the Thunder. That means Kevin Durant, who is one of the best players in the NBA.
The tickets we got aren’t great, but we’ll be there. And I’m guessing we’ll be able to move closer.
So yes, we’re going to see three games in two days. Crazy? Perhaps.
I don’t expect Minnesota to win any of the games. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they do, in fact, go 0-3. The Twins are playing the Rangers. Texas is a good team. Oklahoma City is a good team.
While the Twins have been playing well, I don’t know if they can beat the Rangers.
But we’ll see.
I just hope it doesn’t rain.
