Fan Friday: Off to Cooperstown!

Happy Friday everyone!  Today, after work, I am headed to Cooperstownn, NY!  Fifty-one weekends out of the year, Cooperstown is your typical New York State small town with one traffic light.  But every summer, for one weekend, tens of thousands of people descend on Cooperstown for the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction.  
This will be my 25th induction!  And, yes, you did that math correctly, I've been to every induction since I was born.  I have so many fantastic memories in Cooperstown, and I can't wait to make more this year!
[this was my first induction in 1989 - my dad is the guy all the way on the right hahahaha]

What do we do in Coop you ask?  Walk up and down Main Street a hundred times, look in every single baseball store a thousand times [about 2 of every 3 stores on Main Street are baseball memorabilia stores], and go in the Hall of Fame about a million times.  
OH, and wear our All-Star jerseys!!!!

 In front of the Hall of Fame in 1992 and 2012 - still looks the same, right?

Me with Yankees great Whitey Ford in 1994

Aaaaand of course a high school pic AND a pic with a hand in - both are common in my household.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!! Any fun plans?

That's pretty awesome. I visited the summer between junior and senior year of high school when I went to look at some upstate colleges. I had a lot of fun!
