Pittsburgh Problems

As you all know, baseball is just around the corner. With the baseball season upon us, the 2014 stadium tour planning should be well underway. Truth be told, it's not. All we've accomplished is purchasing tickets to the Pirates game. We're still waiting on Mamadukes to confirm the dates of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom in order for us to pick which September Rays' series we're going to. 

Seeing as how our trip to Pittsburgh is in June, we really need to get our sh*t together. Before we can book hotel, however, we really need to decide whether we're driving or flying to Pittsburgh. In order to determine which is most cost effective, we need to a) research flight costs and public transportation and b) research the cost of tolls, gas, parking, and time. To be frank, this seems like a lot of work and we're tired. We just don't want to do it. SOOOOOOO...if anyone wishes to do this FOR us, that would be stellar. We'll mail you a dollar. Here's what you need to know:
*We're looking at June 6-8. 
*Tickets are for the June 7th game
*We are willing to travel the evening of June 5 (Thursday) and/or willing to return Monday, June 9th as opposed to Sunday. 
*Airports in question are the NY area ones: Laguardia, Islip MacArthur, JFK (NOT Newark)
*Driving directions would originate from a town somewhere in the middle of Nassau County. For example: Bethpage (it should be noted that neither of the TBB live in Bethpage. We're not stupid. You can't be trusted with our legit home addresses).
*The cars that are up for use are either a Ford Focus or Toyota Corolla.
*An EZ Pass will be available for a road trip (so tolls will still need to be paid, but at a reduced EZ Pass rate)

Go forth, young padawans, and help us book our travel plans. 

Our last order of business concerns Opening Day. On February 2nd, we posted the following statement:

For those of you who aren't following us on our social media outlets, we are currently collecting the t-shirts and/or jerseys of baseball players that have disappointed you. Send us your shirt and story to:

Traveling Baseball Babes
c/o Lisa Leone & Serena Ahne
PO Box 2165
New Hyde Park, NY 11040

You'll be featured on a blog post around MLB Opening Day, whether it be a shout out, photo, or video. Best stories = video time. Keep that in mind.

Please note: you'll not be receiving these shirts back, so if you're still somewhat attached to it, don't send it. That is all.

So far, we've received 0 t-shirts. Count it. 0. You're basically ruining our lives. Our Opening Day pep rally is going to be a giant flop because of you if you do not send your shitty team shirt before March 31st. You giant pansies. 

Oh, and also, we're officially going to both the Mets' and Yankees' Opening Days. You're welcome. Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, so expect to see a lot of tom foolery on next week's blog. Again, you're welcome.
