Either THT or NBC needs to let me do something like this pretty soon:
Travis Greene swears there was no beer involved when he came up with this idea of driving 15,000 miles to see 30 ballparks in 30 days. Sitting yesterday afternoon in the upper deck of PNC Park with Pedro Cunillera and Joey Seagraves, fellow Philadelphians and partners in this epic journey, they looked as relaxed as any fans blowing off the workday . . .
. . . They’re making a movie, “30 Ballparks in 30 Days,” and have a Web site of the same name . . . Some 1,400 miles in, they’ve done less than a tenth of the driving and the longest runs are yet to come. A map tracing their trip would look like an Etch-a-Sketch gone awry. From here, it’s: Cleveland; Toronto; Cincinnati; Chicago (White Sox); St. Louis; Kansas City; Arlington, Texas; Minneapolis; Milwaukee; Chicago (Cubs); Detroit; Atlanta; St. Petersburg; Miami; Houston; Los Angeles; Anaheim; Phoenix; Denver; San Francisco; Oakland; Seattle; and, finally, San Diego on May 17.
I’ll be Burt Reynolds. If it’s THT providing the funding for the phony ambulance and Ferrari we’ll need to make it happen, Studeman can be Dean Martin, Carty can be Sammy Davis, Jr. and Treder can be Captain Chaos. If it’s NBC, substitute Pouliot, Harkins, and Gleeman. If you’re too young to know what I’m talking about, further information can be found here.
