Extra Bases

We got country and western

So I checked into the hotel this morning and nearly everybody in the lobby had on cowboy hats. I was initially worried that I had somehow mistakenly flown to Wyoming.

But no. The Motown Hoedown is this weekend and it’s right next to hotel!

The woman at the front desk handed me a list of rules for the weekend. No. 1 was “No amplified music is allowed in the room.” That can’t be a good sign. The good news is that room service is running a special. Four beers in a bucket of ice for $15 plus a $2 delivery fee. That should help keep down the amplified music.


I like Johnny Cash just fine, but I suspect the tunes at the Hoedown will not lure me over. But there are plenty of young ladies in daisy dukes and cowboy boots, so it’s not all bad.

That said, I’m going to listen to some music and get the pre-game post ready.
