We are safely on the ground in Arlington, Vermont with our family in my sister’s massive log cabin rental home, with a giant noble fir in the window, and new snow on the ground this morning. If that isn’t representative of Christmas in New Engand, I don’t know what is. It’s 4am PST, so everyone who will be likely to read this is probably still sleeping by the time it’s posted. I wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday, whether you celebrate or not. May you all have the best day ever.
As for the Hall of Fame, we are currently investigating rental cars to get from here to there, and keeping tabs on the weather. I understand that the forecast has changed a bit and we might be expecting snow, so I’ve sent a Twitter request to a Twitter friend of a Twitter friend, networking my way into possibly more accurate weather information. We’ll be going down Tuesday afternoon and depending on where we get the car from, it might take us about three hours or so. The Ommegang Brewery is open noon to five, and it has been suggested to me that I pour a little beer out for Dave Niehaus. If I can, I certainly will. 🙂
So have a great holiday, everyone. I’m going to have another cup of coffee. See you soon from Cooperstown!
