Tonight is the Brave Astronaut's last night in the Big Easy and the Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists. I am celebrating with an outing with a group of friends at the New Orleans Zephyrs game in nearby Metarie. As most of you know - I have been organizing outings to baseball at the SAA Annual Meeting for the past several years, including a visit to the Zephyrs and New Orleans in 2005 (a week before Katrina struck the city).
For that past few baseball seasons, I have also been running a fantasy baseball team, named the Brave Astronauts of course. I have finished in the middle of the pack most years - this year I have had better offense than I have had in years past, when my pitching has been strongest. Some time ago, I saw this post about the "Ultimate Fictional Baseball Team." It's like fantasy, fantasy baseball.
Thanks SAA for another great week in the Big Easy! Back home again tomorrow!
