. . . at least for a while . . .
Trial is now only a few short weeks away. Heading to Denver May 7th for one last week of prep, followed by a two-week jury trial beginning the 14th. Frankly, I'm looking forward to it. Being a lawyer is typically nothing like its portrayed on TV. It's not exciting. It's a lot research and writing and sitting around an office for twelve hours a day. So, opportunities to actually try a case come few and far between. The downside, however, is that I will not have time for poker until Memorial Day. I'll live. Hopefully.
In non-poker news . . . it's been a busy week; but a good week. Sunday, I made my first trip to National's Park:
National's Park is simply mediocre to me (much like Citi Field). It's big; it's shiny; but it ain't special. The best parts of the park are the various areas where you can stand against the rails and watch the game. My favorite is along the first base line (where I took the above picture from). I typically buy the cheapest seat possible, and just stand and watch the game from elsewhere. More money to spend on $8.50 Coors Lites . . .
Monday morning brought an 8:00 am flight to Houston, Texas for depositions. The best part about Houston is leaving. And so, Tuesday night, I was happy to be on a flight once again to Colorado . . . for more depositions. It was my first trip to Colorado Springs. Cool, old, town tucked back against the Rockies. It was hard to conduct a deposition with this view outside the window:
Depositions ended around 4:00 pm Wednesday, and I made haste for Denver, trying to catch 6:40 first pitch at Coors field:
Second week of the season; three ballparks visited. Not a bad start to the season.
