home of the lukewarm draught

Baseball season is upon us once again. I'm a lifelong New York Mets fan although I also root for the Washington Nationals a bit. As I type this, I'm watching ESPN's broadcast of today's opening day game. The Nationals are playing the Mets at Shea Stadium.

Just over a year ago, I checked off one of those things on every guy's to-do-before-I-die list when I attended a Spring Training game.
Of course, I chose a game at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Florida so I could see the Mets and the Nats, who were days away from starting their debut season in DC.

The game started right around sundown, which made for a nice photo. My niece had sent me her Flat Stanley to take on the trip, so he got photographed too.

One of the big outfield billboards was for the Miccosukee Resort. The pronunciation of which puzzled me until I recently heard Janet Reno properly say the word on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." She said something similar to "mick-o-sookie." All this time I had wondered if the tribe's name would sound like a really bad Irish bar called Mike O'Suckey's.
