THE WORLDS BIGGEST ROYALS FAN…AND OTHER IMAGES
The homestand got off to a great start…I thought I’d show you a few of the things we’ve seen on the road…and at home….as the the season rolls through June…
Our friend Marine Sgt. Nathan Cosby made his first visit to the New Kauffman Stadium for the Cincinnati series…and the home team rewarded him for his trip from Jacksonville, Florida…where he proudly serves his country..with a sweep!! Nathan’s been a Marine for six years. He already had most of the tattoo on his arm, but recently “finished the job” with the addition of the crown on top…just like the New K!
Cleveland was (mostly) miserable for the Royals…losing 2 of 3..when they should have swept…so this is the only Cleveland pic that makes the cut. From their version of the hot dog races. Those guys are just a bunch of empty suits!
While in Toronto…I wanted to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame. I didn’t make it…but Bob and I did dine at Wayne Gretzky’s restaurant in downtown Toronto. It’s almost as good…plus they serve ribs! The address is 99 Blue Jays Way.
Gretzky is revered everywhere but especially in his home country. “The Great One” was born and raised in Brantford, Ontario…an hour or so from Toronto. There are many impressive artifacts from his incredible career on display at his restaurant/shrine.. Here…jerseys from his days with the Rangers…Kings…and Edmonton Oilers.
On the roof of the building is a nice little oasis in downtown Toronto…Gretzky’s patio deck. I recommend it (in the summertime of course…).
