California Dreaming Trip - 26 events in 20 days

I'm just a few hours away from heading to the airport for my first and perhaps only big trip of the year. I've added three more events to the schedule: an afternoon with the Nationwide Tour in Hayward on Friday the 15th (thanks to Andrew for the tip), a great top 25 NCAA baseball matchup with Arizona State visiting Cal on the afternoon of the 22nd ( just before the Braves and Giants meet up across the Bay), and the Sharks playoff game on the 23rd (which conflicts with the Arena Football game). That makes 26 scheduled events over 20 days, with one day off to meet up with my brother in Las Vegas (the real reason for the trip).

Here's the final schedule:
Apr 12 Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants 7:15
Apr 13 Las Vegas 51s at Sacramento River Cats 12:05 (PCL)
Apr 13 Los Angeles Lakers at Sacramento Kings 7:30
Apr 14 Las Vegas 51s at Sacramento River Cats 7:05 (PCL)
Apr 15 Fresh Express Classic at TPC Stonebrae 10:00 (PGA, Nationwide Tour)
Apr 15 Oregon State Beavers at Stanford Cardinal 5:30 (Pac 10)
Apr 16 Santa Clara Broncos at St. Mary's Gaels 1:00 (WCC)
Apr 16 Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics 6:00
Apr 17 Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics 1:05
Apr 18 Inland Empire 66ers at San Jose Giants 7:00 (Cal League)
Apr 19 Stanford Cardinal at Santa Clara Broncos 6:00 (NCAA)
Apr 20 Boston Red Sox at Oakland Athletics 12:35
Apr 20 Visalia Rawhide at Stockton Ports 7:05 (Cal League)
Apr 21 Rancho Cucamonga Quakes at Modesto Nuts 7:05 (Cal League)
Apr 22 Arizona State Sun Devils at California Golden Bears 2:30 (NCAA)
Apr 22 Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants 7:15
Apr 22 Philadelphia Soul at San Jose SaberCats 7:30 (Arena Football)
Apr 23 Chivas USA at San Jose Earthquakes 1:00 (MLS)
Apr 23 Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks 7:30 (NHL Playoffs, if necessary)
Apr 24 Reno Aces at Fresno Grizzlies 2:05 (PCL)
Apr 25 Visalia Rawhide at Bakersfield Blaze 7:15 (Cal League)
Apr 26 Inland Empire 66ers at High Desert Mavericks 7:05 (Cal League)
Apr 28 Sacramento River Cats at Las Vegas 51s 7:05 (PCL)
Apr 29 Sacramento River Cats at Las Vegas 51s 7:05 (PCL)
Apr 30 Tacoma Rainiers at Reno Aces 6:05 (PCL)
May 1 Tacoma Rainiers at Reno Aces 1:05 (PCL)
The conflict between the Sharks and SaberCats will likely be resolved by moving the football game a day earlier, so I'll miss out on that. The crazy prices for Sacramento's last NBA game will probably prevent me from attending that tilt as well. But the trip will still be a blast. I'll be updating daily so follow along!

Update: there were a couple of schedule changes that reduces the number of events to 23. Not such a big deal after all.
