Kansas City here I come...

Somebody pinch me because it can't get any better than this; a baseball road trip to Opening Day... Kansas City here we come.

Actually, we're already here and we are ready for some Angels baseball, baby!

We got up really, really early this morning for a 6:10 a.m. flight out of Los Angeles and we're more than a little bit tired; however, I don't know if we'll be able to sleep because tomorrow is opening day! Let me say that again - tomorrow is opening day! It's finally here and we're more than a little bit excited; in case you hadn't noticed. Can I get a Woo-hoo?

To make the trip even more special; we're being joined by Cheryl's cousin Larry and his wife Cathy, who flew in from New Jersey to join us!

It's cold here, but baseball is definitely in the air. We've been proudly wearing our Angels jackets and people have been striking up conversations with us left and right.

We stopped in a coffee shop and the Barista noticed Cheryl's Angels jacket and said to Cheryl, "I hope Jered Weaver does well tomorrow; he's on my fantasy team."

Later we went to the legendary Oklahoma Joe's Barbecue and ran into a few more baseball fans standing in line behind us. One of them asked us if he made a good late round pick up in Peter Bourjos for his league. You know we gave him the big thumbs up on that deal (the same guy actually took our picture).

Looks like the Angels are big in Kansas City fantasy leagues. I'm just saying, don't you know.

By the way... we have to give it up for some awesome KC BBQ at Oklahoma Joe's. It's an institution around these parts... located in a gas station of all places! We're having a blast and a single pitch hasn't even been thrown yet. Tomorrow should be extra special.

Did I mention how excited we are? Yeah, it's baseball season and it's just about the best time of the year for sure.

More to come... you can count on it.
