Going For A BROcation- Original Preparation

If it hasn't been obvious for the last month, and a half. There was something coming up that took most of my attention away from the blogging, and onto something else. Something that required me to work quite a few days of overtime to pay for it.

This something finally arrived when I was able to take a trip up to Seattle to watch my favorite teams the Rockies play my second favorite the Mariners. Before getting into sharing how the trip went I thought it would be fun to share what went into preparing for the actual trip itself. First the original agenda I had when the wife made me the deal that if I worked overtime to pay for it.

This was going to be the arrival day that would start with me getting up early, and making the four to five hour drive to Seattle.
8:00- Wake up shower, and begin the drive.
1:00- arrive in Seattle, then stop at the mall to get my ticket before checking in at the hotel.  
1:00 to 4:00- Hopefully get to take a nap before heading out to the game.
4:00- Drive to the game, and have a great time.

Sunday games are usually much earlier, and start around one.
10:00- Head out to the game 
4:00- Head out to someplace for dinner before going back to the hotel for the night.

Looking at the schedule I noticed that the Angels were coming to town when the Rockies left. With my favorite current player being Mike Trout I had to take this chance to see Trout play. The thought of trying to nail down an in-person auto was something I thought about as well. Besides all this I had researched card shops in the area, and saw one that looked like a must visit.
11:00- Go to the card shop in hopes of finding some Mariners treasures for the hobby room.
4:00- Head to the stadium to close out the trip with one final baseball game.

This was going to be a simple day of driving home when I finally woke up.

If you paid attention to the title you will see that it is named Original Preparation. Little did I know when these plans were made that within a week my entire agenda would fly out the window, and get rocked by a game-changer.
