Adios to the OP–for now

The time has almost come for me to leave the Overland Park Marriott once again. If I stay in Kansas City tonight, I figure I’ll stay one night at a hotel near Zona Rosa and then go home for good tomorrow. Lisa may want to keep me at Buffalo Wild Wings for a long time, since this is it before I start the new school year, at least as far as sports is concerned.

It’s been one of those up and down trips. The down was taking out my frustrations on Liz and getting angry at those two guys Tuesday. The highs came from getting doused with ice water and reconnecting with so many people from Arabi Park via Facebook.

I’ve made two more reconnections in the last 24 hours, Christi Rehage (Alvarez) and Andree Dauterive (Addison), Stacie’s sister who was two years behind us at Arabi Park.

I’ve got an errand or two to run in Overland Park before going north. I promised Lisa I would get her Abita beer since Brittany Davidson loved it so much. There’s a store in OP near the Marriott which has more flavors than the selection at Hy-Vee, which wasn’t bad.

I’m hoping against hope to squeeze in a Saturday trek to KC to watch college football. We’ll see. Next post will be from Buffalo Wild Wings once I get set up.

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
