It seems like I just can't keep my head above water these days. Things have been busy, busy, busy and it has lead to many piles of cards on my desk and unanswered emails. If I owe you something or haven't gotten back to you, please send me another reminder because I could use it. Also, if there's a team whose trade bait you'd like to see posted before any other, let me know and I'll move it to the top of the list.
Life has been good though. I just celebrated my 5 year anniversary and as part of the celebration, I added a new minor league ballpark to my collection. We went to see the Portland Sea Dogs this past Friday night at Hadlock Field. It's a great little field that pays homage to Fenway Park with its own replica of the Green Monster and Citgo Sign. I came home with a new Sea Dogs hat, baseball, pin, team set and soft serve ice cream helmet for my various collections. The weather wasn't great, but we got to visit the children's, art and cryptozoological museums while we were there. Boston sports have been amazing. The Celtics swept the Knicks out of the playoffs and earned some much needed rest. The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 games with a starter's ERA of 0.88. The Bruins have turned things around after looking like they were going to fold in the playoffs again.
This weekend is the big Boston Comicon that has an amazing guest list. Work is keeping me busy. Family is always the priority. I just keep telling myself that it could be worse, I could be on Upper Deck's schedule and take four months to get something done. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes for my Paul Pierce card to get to me. I'll probably do a little video of opening that since I have no clue what the actual card that I'm getting is going to look like.
