A 'Long Lunch' at the Ballpark

Road Trip Nightmares

The familiar voice of the PA announcer filled the park: "And now, the moment you've all been waiting for. It's ... the racing presidents!" The crowd roared, but I ignored the rest of the announcement. I'd seen it all before. Let the rookies and rubes watch the big screen. But...
