    Last night I had a fantastic time at a Oaxaca Guerrero’s home baseball game.
    Everything I heard about Mexican Professional Baseball was true.
    The fans know the game
    The fans are loud
    The music is loud
    The play is decent. Some great players mixed into it.
    The games take a long time (fine w/me)

    The Guerrero’s are in first place a few games ahead of Puebla who they played.
    The game started at 7. Ended after midnight!
    Both starting pitchers were Gringos. Neither were that good (last night...and their ERA’s say that’s normal)
    Oaxaca mounted a rally and a double off the left center wall in the bottom of the ninth brought in the winning run 6-5. The place erupted!!
    Added to the mix was a swarm of huge beetles that hatched after recent heavy rains. Boy! In the US baseball fans and players bitch about midges and other small insects. Here, the freaking insect can alter the flight of the ball! And they hurt when they hit you. And they grab into your clothes. They were everywhere. It was bizarre. But exciting for this Gringo! I really had a good time. And you should have seen the look in the Oaxaca starter’s face when he was falling behind and I belted our “c’mon Rogers! Get right at him. He’s all over the plate. Put it under his hands!”
    It was like he’d never heard English yelled at him during a game. The response I got from him brought applause from the locals surrounding me.
    What a night!
    Tonight’s the last night I can stay in the Airbnb place I’m renting, as it’s booked solid for the next two weeks. So...tomorrow I move four minutes away to another place for two more nights. Then it’s off to San Jose del Pacifico and to see my friends again at Hostal Mandela y Evelyn, where I stayed a week last year. Looking forward to that!

    For sure she’s the right tool for the job.
    Ol’ Blue (my trusty SV650 I sold with 237,000 miles on her) would NOT have made it through some of the shit I’ve been on.
    Most, but not all.
    Glad to see you made it back from the coast OK. I have fond memories of the trip we rode together through the Carolinas. Tell Becky I said hey!

    Just a cool retro motel with decent riding in the area. Super nice folks that run it and they have a fire pit out back across the bridge some nights.
