Get the Fountains of Wayne CDs Ready Because Stone Groove is Hitting the Road
Today I embark on the first annual Stone Groove / Summer Dan baseball trip. As you all know, I go on a baseball trip every year. This year's trip will be in August as a number of us will be descending on the West Coast. But this year, I've convinced my dad to come on a mini-trip. I couldn't get him to travel too far so we're taking it easy.
A few of my older colleagues at work have commended me for being such a good son and going out of the way to take my dad on a trip. But, believe me, I am not doing this to do the old man any favors. I feel lucky that he has finally decided to try this and that my mom let him out of the house.
The official start is tomorrow and I don't even know if he will go to tonight's game. I have convinced Marc and his parents as well as Mitch and his parents (at this writing, they are still not completely in) to go but Stone Groove is concerned that this is too much baseball for him. Pish posh! He said he'll call me while I'm en route and I have a good feeling he'll come.
