So Here It Goes…
Hello, everyone. I’ve been meaning to get this thing going for a while, but blogging is funny. It’s not hard, but it does take time, thought, and dedication. The purpose of this blog is to share observations and anecdotes regarding the Oklahoma City RedHawks, Houston Astros, Minor League baseball, and much more. My goal is to post regularly and keep this relevant. However, I’ll never post just for the sake of posting something.
There has been a flurry of Astros activity lately, but I’m not going to rehash it all. For anything related to Astros moves, etc., just follow the work of Brian McTaggart of astros.com (@brianmctaggart) or Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle (@chronastros). Both of them do a much better job reporting and analyzing than I could.
Here at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, we’re as busy as ever. Chesapeake Energy Snow Tubing is fully underway…
Beginning Thursday, Snow Tubing will be a daily event through January 5, with a couple of exceptions. Click here for a full schedule and to order to your tickets to be part of the annual ballpark holiday tradition. Our operations crew has worked really hard keeping the slides in great condition while battling the unseasonably warm weather.
In addition to snow tubing, there are some changes happening at the ballpark that I’ll be able to discuss in the future. Also, we’ve welcomed a handful of new staff members with a couple more on the way after the New Year.
As I mentioned above, I’ll be writing about things outside of baseball as well. Those of you who follow me on Twitter probably aren’t surprised. (And if you’re not following me on Twitter…why not? @azfreedman) One of my big interests outside of sports is music. Since snow tubing began, there has been a bevy of Christmas music playing at the ballpark.
Some love it. Some hate it. For the most part I’m ambivalent. However, if someone asks me what my favorite Christmas song is, that’s a no-brainer:
Enjoy the holidays. I’ll check back in after New Year’s, when baseball prep starts getting real.
