For those of you who may be around and abouts here in SoCal this weekend, here is a some of Sporting Events that could be of interest to you.
For the baseball traveler….
The World Champion White Sox are down I-5 to do battle with the Angels in a rematch of last years ALCS in a 3 game series beginning tonight through Sunday. Also, our Boys in Blue will be in San Diego to do battle with the Padres. For your reference, Anaheim is approximately 40 minutes south of Los Angeles, San Diego 2 hours south, both accessible through Interstate 5. As for other stuff to do in between the 3 cities, well, I’m sure you can figure it out. After all, it’s you’re road trip.
