Guess who was invited today to see Cal Ripken's induction into the Hall of Fame, along with five of my players? I'm talking for free, complete with a bus leaving at 2:30 a.m. from Baltimore up to Cooperstown.
Guess who can't go, because he's going to be in Michigan for the week?
I thought about trying to rig something where I fly back to Baltimore in the middle of my visit to Michigan, for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it just doesn't seem financially feasible. I haven't talked with the donor yet, and hopefully he'll still let my players go, perhaps with my Assistant Coach.
Pretty cool, even if it doesn't look like it'll work out for me.
