The good news is hte stadium was as beautiful as the game was ugly. Opened in 1973, Kauffman Stadium rivals many of the new ballparks opening today. The park features great sight lines from all concourses, unobstructed seating throughout, and some good food options (though in my opinion overpriced even for a ballpark). There is a local barbecue restaurant that has stands in Kauffman stadium -- their sandwiches are excellent and the spicy barbecue sauce has quite a kick; the original is tangy and flavorful as well. I highly recommend one of their sandwiches along with a Boulevard wheat beer (surprisingly smooth for a wheat beer).
mcrochip got a little under-the-weather yesterday, but is feeling a bit better today. This was nothing serious, just a runny nose/congestion. It seems some hot tea, Claritin, a decongestant and sleep has helped, as he is significantly (but not 100%) better today. I'm sure any well-wishes left in his journal will be appreciated.
Our next stops today are Cabela's and/or the Negro Leagues museum, then on to Iowa.
