The summer is upon us FINALLY! What are you looking forward to the most!?! I have been thinking about my summer “bucket list” lately and it seems to keep growing by the day!
Here are some things that I am planning to do this summer:
1.) Throw out the first pitch on July 26th at the Toledo Mud Hens Game!
- Nick & I have been asked to throw out a first pitch and I can’t wait to redeem myself for last year! If you haven’t heard the story by now… I was shown up by a little boy, a young softball player and the Detroit Pistons Mascot. Needless to say it was a pretty embarrassing excuse of a first pitch. In fact I bounced it in the batter’s box! (I still maintain that I couldn’t see the catcher because of the sun!)
2.) Take the Jet Express to Put-In-Bay
-Believe it or not I have never been to Put-In-Bay! The plan is to go island and explore it. I hear great things about the food and you can never go wrong tooling around in a golf cart!
3.) Watch a game at Progressive Field in Cleveland
-It wouldn’t be summer without going to a Tribe game! Hopefully it will be on a dollar dog night! Nothing sounds like a great eating challenge night with your buddies like dollar dogs!
4.) See Jerry Blevins pitch in Great American Ball Park vs. the Reds
- I was able to interview Jerry Blevins on the Sports Huddle this year so I am hoping to see him pitch against the Reds when I go down in August. GABP is such an awesome environment to check out a game and ball park food is awesome.
5.) Take a trip to the Zoo.
- I am still a little kid at heart and I really like the zoo. The last time I went it was during Boo At The Zoo and it was almost too cold to appreciate it.
6.) Explore the illustrious world of “Upper Arlington”
- Nick keeps talking about his home town as a place where “The Magic Happens” so I need to go see for myself. Our little “golden bear” is very proud of his stomping grounds and since I have taken him through the glorious mean streets of New Riegel I need to take him.
What else should I add to the list? Let me know!
