Long Update

While the government forced me to cancel a few of my Summer trips, I was able to salvage a few. I just got back from NYC last night. I went with my good friend and his fiancée. I was supposed to go with another buddy but he had to cancel at the last minute. We went from Saturday-Tuesday. He's a big Braves fan so we saw two Mets-Braves games at Citi field and then a Yankees-Sox game on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. This trip was a little different than my last for a few reasons.

One I stayed in Queens. My buddy's fiancée has a cousin with a house where she let us crash. It was an awesome situation as they were a great family and we were able to save a ton of money on no hotel costs. Two, we took the Subway practically everywhere. It actually got really easy by the end of the trip with the hopspot ap. The toughest was going to Yankee Stadium during rush hour. Three, unlike last time I was in NYC I hung out with Chuck (Danzasmack). He met us out on Saturday night then invited us over to his place on Monday night to watch the Bruins-Canucks game, creating a great drinking game. It was so good, I don't really remember any of the third period.

I'm always unsure of how my non-poker friends will get along with my poker friends but here's basically what happens on Saturday night. We head out, Chuck comes into the bar with his friend, introductions are made. Within 15 seconds he's buying everyone shots and within 2 minutes he was getting an invitation to my buddy's wedding. And not just to go to the wedding, to be an usher. Things went well on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium too when we had an extra ticket and invited my friend who coaches baseball down in NYC to the game. He was also nice enough to give us a ride home after so we didn't have to deal with another jam packed subway ride.

I thought Citi Field was great. Awesome sightlines and a fun ballpark. My only problem with it is they have too many clubs/restaurants. So instead of people being at their seats, many aren't watching the game from the field. Yankee Stadium is incredible. They spent a ton of money on it but everything about the place is immaculate. We did have an overly intense dude in front of us that looked like he wanted to say something to me in my Sox gear about 10 times but he never did. However the unintentional comedy in the seat in front of us was awesome.

During the ride home I was thinking that it's funny that I quit coaching legion because I wanted to travel during the summer and thanks to what's going on in the poker world I could've just continued to coach as I only was able to go on trips for one summer. This is the 5th year I've coached varsity baseball and for the first 4 I was coaching during the summer. I also thought about how easy I thought it was going to be to transition from a player to coach, I'd just emulate all of my favorites and it'd be easy, wrong.

It took about 3 years until I actually became comfortable running practices, creating the team mentality that I wanted, learn how to discipline kids, among a bunch of other things. It really is hard to become a good coach and it's something that takes a ton of time and effort. I've been fortunate enough that I've had quite a few people top help me speed up the process and while it took a little while I now know I could run a team with very little problems.

The Bruins tied up the Stanley Cup Finals tonight against the Canucks as it's now 2-2 in series. I was unable to watch game 2 since I was at the Braves-Mets game and it absolutely killed me. They were up 2-1 in the 3rd and lost 11 seconds into overtime. To make matters worse, Burrows scored 2 goals and had an assist after biting Patrice Bergeron in game 1. The league decided not to suspend him and he goes onto be the first star of the game. Following on your phone at a baseball game was next to impossible.

However the Bruins came out flying in the next 2 games at home, winning 8-1 and 4-0. As the West started to get figured out I wanted to play the Canucks all along. The Bruins have a ton of trouble with quicker teams and although Vancouver is very skilled they're much more physical than most Western Conference teams. The series has become very chippy which in my opinion suits the Bruins much better than the Canucks, we'll see what happens. Game 5 in Vancouver is going to be ridiculously intense, I just hope the Bruins can continue to play well.

I'm running in a 2 mile race on July 4th again. I've been running quite a bit in the last week or so and although I know it's only a 2 mile I was curious if any DC members had any tips on how to prepare for a race. Before I would just continue running about 3-4 miles a day on my treadmill and I fell short of my goal last year. I plan to do much more street running for the upcoming race but I also cramped up too. I know I'm about a month away but any dieting tips for what to eat leading up to the race would be huge as well. 

Last year my goal was 2 miles in 13:30 and I finished in 13:45. I did such a bad job pacing myself as I ran a 6:30 first mile. This year I'd like to run it in 13:15 or less. It isn't going to be easy but I'd be willing to bet that I can do it.
