Break Time

I'm taking a few months off from road tripping to relax. Last year was a bit crazy with five trips to North America, two to Asia and one to Europe. I spent nearly five months of the year outside of Tokyo and it shows in my pocketbook. So I'll be spending the next 3 months here to take it easy and save some money for the rest of the year. I'll still go to Japanese sports on occasion and update the schedule, but I won't be adding posts for every game I go to as there is no useful info to impart.

The long term plan is to see more of the stadiums I've yet to visit in North America. I have a goal of 500 venues world wide (I'm at 327 now) so I figure 35 a year for 5 years will get me there. In the States, there's about 80 minor league baseball parks plus 25 NFL stadiums that need to be added, as well as a few NHL and NBA arenas. I've yet to see a CFL or MLS game which is truly pathetic. Beyond that, minor leagues in hockey, basketball, and football offer plenty of out-of-the-way places, so it shouldn't be a problem to reach the goal.

In the meantime, I'll occasionally post interesting road trips or other sports commentary to keep the blog going. So stay tuned!
