Baseball outing in Buffalo end of July.

    Given the number of SportsJournalists.comers in WNY and the GTA, who'd be up for getting together for a Bisons game one weekend? Or maybe TWO games?

    They have a lot of homestands Friday and Saturday night with Sunday games starting at 1:00 on Sunday.

    IF HC & I were going to come, we'd prefer either a Saturday evening game or a Sunday matinee.

    Here's the schedule

    Nothing's cast in stone but I know at least Huggy & Patchs are interested.

    Even if there's only a half dozen or so of us, it'd be a blast.

    I have family in Buffalo and my cousin opened up a bar on Chippewa Street last summer, so I've been looking for an excuse to visit besides a funeral.

    I'd be up for something like this.

    The dates wouldn't really matter to me.

    So, if you came, there'd be free beer, right?

    I imagine their might be.

    My cousin's dad is big into (Democrat) politics in Buffalo and used to own a bar in South Buffalo.

    My cousin and his brothers all bartender. One's a firefighter. One played minor league hockey. I don't think there's anyone in the city they don't know --especially bartenders.

    When I've gone out with them, it's like being with the frickin' Mayor.

    I don't think I've ever paid for a drink when I've been out with them.

    That's if you come to Chicago.

    If you're talking about July, my month of freedom, I'd consider making the drive


    We are talking abut the Triple A Mets here. (as opposed to the Triple A team that plays at Citi Field)

    July works for me.

    It's a nine hour drive from NYC to Toronto so I guess Buffalo's about a 7 hour drive? Nice drive, too.

    I want to kill myself just thinking about that drive.

    I suppose the Corning Glass factory was kind of neat, but I'll be happy to never do that drive again.

    Can do it in about 6 1/2 from NJ ... less if I'm coming from my sister's house in the poconos (my July hangout)

    I don't know. I can think of worse drives--Detroit to Toronto, Montreal to Toronto.

    At least you go through the mountains in PA and it's pretty stress-free and you're not constantly surrounded by big-ass rigs

    Then there's no reason for you NOT to come. :)
