It doesn’t take much to please me. I’m a simple guy who really enjoys just five things.
1. Baseball, specifically Pirates baseball but anything involving the sport excites me.
2. Christmas, my favorite holiday and I love the spirit and good nature of the season.
3. West Virginia University, my school and soon to be alma mater
4. Disney World, happiest place on earth
5. Family, nothing beats the love and compassion we share for each other
This next week I will be checking off three of those five things. Baseball, Disney World and Family.
We’re headed to the Sunshine State for three nights in Miami and three in Orlando.
For the past decade we’ve planned our vacations around baseball. Our goal is to hit all 30 in the near future, very near actually. Friday night we will be at Dolphins Stadium, or Sun Life, or Landshark or Pro Player Stadium, which will be number 27 for the Peaslee family. The Marlins host the Nationals and we will be seeing Stephen Strasburg pitch, my brother and my second time witnessing the phenom.
I love hanginf out in big cities and South Beach will be no exception. I plan on taking the advice of Will Smith and will party in the city where the heat is on. Speaking of Heat, maybe I’ll run into LeBron James, I will be buying his Heat shirt. Not much I love more than sticking it to Cleveland fans.
Our final three days will be spent around the Disney World parks. Even as a 21 year old college dude I love Disney. Anything from the movies (although I did not like Toy Story 3) to the characters but most importantly the amusement park that brings it all together. I feel the enchantment as soon as I walk in the gates. All four parks are special and unique and unlike any other place on Earth.
I will be talking to you all in a week! Pirates fans, hold down the fort and lets try to win one from the Astros this weekend!
