Tomorrow morning I will be headed home from Salem, Va. The team I covered, Richard Stockton College, lost 61-52 to defending national champs Washington University in the Division III national championship.
It was a fun season. I genuinely like the guys on this team. I usually can't say that about all the people I cover. I've met some real jerks, but not these guys.
Anyway, to treat myself, I am thinking about hitting the Reading, Pa., card show tomorrow. It's not White Plains or the Philly show, but it's something right? When I was in Denver two years ago, I hit a card show there and bought a box of Turkey Red. I pulled a Dick Perez signed Derek Jeter large box topper /25. Perhaps I should try finding something local and try my luck on the road again.
Reading (pronounced redding) would put me an hour of my way in an already six-hour drive.
What do we say?
Reading or straight home?
By the way, anyone else watching the W. Kentucky/Gonzaga game?
