    Roy, Roy, Roy. You just have to know how to budget your time. Make sure you're out of some kind of food or ice or whatever on Fri or Sat night or Sunday afternoon. Volunteer to go to the store for said items but go to the game with us instead. When Mrs. Tucker asks where you have been, make up some kind of excuse like you got lost or you had to go to several stores to find it or you had a flat tire or something.

    Yeah... ice can be tough to find, sometimes. *snortle*

    Yep, and you'll need that ice to put on your various contusions and abrasions you will receive upon returning home.

    I think that's a great idea Chip.

    I sure that Mrs. T will be so grateful that I returned safely and won't have any problems with me being gone for such an event for our first-born son. No problem at all. Along with the ice, I better find a good lawyer too.

    Maybe I could convince Uncle Bush aka Bob B. to go get ice with me. He'll be around. *That* would be a blast.

    Oof. Anybody wanna turn around and head to Chicago right after this to see the Reds play there? I always have a hard time fending off the Wrigley faithful by myself. They are secretly jealous that I have the cutest Reds-themed shoes the world has ever seen. Also, the last time I saw the Reds play there, a series of Cubs pitchers walked like six Reds batters in a row. It was amazing, but my glee was rather solitary.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    But that's the beauty of this, you'll find lawyers at the gathering

    My wife has a pair of white sneakers where the stiches on them are nice big red baseball stitches. She is pretty proud of them.

    Oh man! I've been looking for those my whole life! Where did she get them?

    Mine were my mother's. They have Mr. Red embroidered on the sides. But man, baseball stitches...

    I'll have to ask. I know they are 4-5 years old and at least one move ago.

    They aren't Reds specific, just obvious baseball stiching on them. She only wears them when we are going to the ballpark. I think she "only" has one pair of them, so I'd bet she hasn't been able to find them again.

    From the looks of them, they are not a high dollar item, likely a Target type place had them.

    Put me down as tentative - it's just way too early to commit at this point.

    One thing is for sure, I won't be spending this year at doctorate hooding ceremonies like last year.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Damn I would love to do this my problem would be driving from upstate N.Y about a hour north of albany. What sort of hotels/motels are near the park? Also what kind of price range we talking as im not the richest of folks but i could scrape together a couple of hundred dollars.Sounds like a very intriguing event to say nothing of seeing the Reds play outside of shea and the old olympic stadium.

    I think I shot through about six bones last weekend, but I spent a lot of money on beer and incidentals. Tickets'll probably be around 20-25 a game with group discount rates (if we get enough people onboard) and hotels are going to run you anywhere from 80 a night to 150-160, or you can go for the big-money Westin. The Radisson was 120 a night, but I don't recommend it.

    All said, not counting gas you can probably do the weekend quite comfortably in the 400 range.

    And yeah, I posted this way out in advance so people can start thinking about whether or not they want to do it (or do it again). Tickets aren't even on sale yet - speaking of which, I'll handle the ticket purchasing if no one else steps up, though I'm not that thrilled about it. Creek, I don't want you to be saddled with the responsibility for it if you can't attend - that seems totally unfair to me.

    Re: RedsZone Gathering 2006

    Hotel price depends on discounts (check the travel sites; someone on here got the Westin last year for $65 a night from one of them) and location. You'll obviously have a car and staying out in the burbs rather than downtown or on the river can save you a bundle. If you'd like suggestions for them and/or hotel names (there are tons), let me know and I'll do some research for you.

    You could also buy cheaper tickets but wouldn't be able to be with the group during the game(s). You could, of course, probably slide in later as people shuffle around the park and give up seats around where the group might be sitting.

    Count me in too. I think I'll stay at my house though. It makes more sense than the hotel and I wouldn't want to leave my wife home alone.
