I think I'm going to start hanging out at airports more. Although it sucks having to fly from city to city every few days, the entertainment I receive while waiting for my flights may be worth it. Every single time I fly somewhere I witness something I've never seen before. As many of you know I have been placed on the DL for the past two weeks with a sprained joint in my hand. The team flew me to New York City last week to meet with our hand doctor to see exactly what the problem may be. On my way there I had the privilege of watching a man scream at the top of his lungs while picking up his ticket at automatic check-in. "65 dollars for a seat!?!?! How the hell is my seat 65 dollars!?!?! For a $#%@ing seat!?!?! 65 dollars?!?!" This went on for a good five minutes. He yelled at every person that walked by, yet I still have no idea what the hell he is talking about. What does that even mean? He already had purchased his ticket if he is checking in. I guess 65 dollars for a seat upgrade? I have no clue, but it was still fun to watch everyone's reaction to him. Next I waited in line for security, a place where you know something strange is going to happen. A guy walks up to the entrance and asks the employee that checks your boarding pass and I.D. if this is the line for American. He responds that this is the security line for American, but the check-in line for American is down the hall. "So this is the line for American?" he asks again. The employee once again says its the security line, but he needs to have a boarding pass to pass through security. "So, American is through here?" HELLO, I'M EARTH HAVE WE MET? I DON'T THINK SO!

Anyways, I flew to NYC and had my hand checked. Turns out I have a sprained joint in my hand and needed a cortisone shot. I haven't been allowed to swing a bat for the last two weeks, and will attempt to do so for the first time this weekend. Hopefully everything feels good. If I have no pain I think I should be back in the lineup rather quickly. Just another pain in the ass issue with my hands, but at least this one doesn't seem to be that serious. *Knock on wood* 

Well, I wish I had more to say, but I need to go some laundry. It's been far too long, and I don't even know if my hotel has laundry machines in it. You guys take care!
