Day 2 (of the family vacation): You gotta start early
There's a sign in Tom's Burned Down Cafe* that says: "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning!" Profound.
If my day were Saturday's baseball game: Rickie Weeks' lead-off, inside-the-park homerun was like starting off the day with a shot of tequila; building a 5-2 lead, like sipping ice cold Leinies on a hot afternoon; and Trevor Hoffman's 597th career save like Bailey's on the rocks. Sweet.
I love vacation.
Brewers 5, Astros 2
Game played 8-7-10
*Tom's Burned Down Cafe is really just a bar in a tent. I can't tell if it really burned down at one point or if that's just a marketing ploy.
