Live from Memphis, it's Saturday night!
So, the bride and I are at AutoZone Park, and it’s really an outstanding facility. Top-quality all around. I highly recommend this place if you get the chance to come down.
Hopefully if you do, however, you’ll have better weather than we’re having here tonight. The scheduled start time was more than half an hour ago, and the tarp is still on the field — though they’re trying to remove the water from the tarp now so that they can remove the tarp from the field. Here’s hoping, because it would be nice to see a ballgame tonight.
For those who asked about Spivey, that story probably isn’t going to happen. He declined to speak when I asked him before the game. Which is not to say that he’s not worth writing about. It’s something worth pursuing, for sure. But it’s tough to tell his story if he doesn’t want to talk.
Best news of the day — really outstanding Memphis barbecue for the press meal. Can’t go wrong with that.
So anyway, that’s the update/dispatch for now. Thanks to radio man Steve Selby, media relations guy Kyle Parkinson, team president Dave Chase, and everybody else down here for making us feel extremely welcome. Memphis is a great place to be.
